Prenatal Pilates can be done safely during pregnancy to benefit the mother before, during and after pregnancy. If you have decided on a natural birth or choose to give birth in a hospital, there are certain exercises that will prepare your body for the birth. The program is designed to target areas in the pregnant body to prepare it for a supple and relaxed birth, as well as to strengthen areas of that body that are underdeveloped.
Postnatal Pilates is just as important for after the birth. It is about restoring a body that has gone through a tremendous amount of change in a very little space of time. The sooner a mother can start back, the better it will be for her body. Most of the exercises a mother learns during her prenatal lessons, the easier it will be for her to recover. After birth, we will check for diastasis recti (a separation of the abdominal muscles) and go about safely creating a program that will help you recover.
