Why Pregnancy Reformer Pilates?
Pilates is one of the best exercises for women to do before, throughout and after pregnancy. Regular Pregnancy Pilates throughout and after birth can help you feel and look your best, while simultaneously keeping at bay many pregnancy-related issues such as back pain and incontinence. Helping you glow for your pregnancy!
Are you afraid of a difficult 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.
Pilates is so beneficial during pregnancy because it improves Strength, Stability, Flexibility, Breathing Control, Spinal Mobility, Coordination and Balance.
Improving the strength of the pelvic muscles for pregnancy is important because stronger muscles in the pelvic floor region can mean more controlled and less tiring labour. Without a strong pelvic floor, women can risk sustaining trauma to their pelvic floor during pregnancy or labour, which can lead to incontinence issues.
Breathing properly is important for reducing stress and lowering blood pressure. As Pilates focuses on breathing, it can be especially useful for pregnant women who often have trouble breathing. This is caused by a growing baby putting pressure on the diaphragm, creating physical restrictions that prevent pregnant women from inhaling deeply.
Pregnancy might seem like the best time to quit the gym and put your feet up but Prenatal Pilates can help your mental and physical health. Regular exercise when you’re pregnant will also help prevent some pregnancy-related ailments from developing so you don’t suffer through the 9 months!
Our trained instructors can guide you through your pregnancy, looking after you and your bump.
