Pilates is so beneficial during pregnancy because it improves:
- Breathing control
- Spinal mobility
Improving the strength of the pelvic muscles for pregnancy is important because stronger muscles in the pelvic floor region can mean a more controlled and less tiring labour. By strengthening the core stabilising muscles around the pelvis and spine, and improving the breathing pattern, it is hoped that one can optimise the body for the challenges of childbirth.
The pelvic floor muscles have to work a lot during pregnancy, as these are the muscles which support the weight of the baby. Developing strong pelvic floor muscles through Pregnancy Pilates can help to prevent the not-so-nice experience of urinary incontinence during and after pregnancy.
Regular Pilates practice also helps your body to recover and get back into shape after pregnancy. By keeping the tummy muscles strong throughout pregnancy women find they regain their former strength more quickly after the baby is born.
All courses must be pre-paid. Course classes may not be transferred to another course.
