Why Pregnancy Pilates?
Dawnna Wayburne, Education Director at Iso Fit says: "Pilates routines are ideal for building both the strength and stamina, which a mother will need in labour and delivery. As the expectant mother starts to get larger, Pilates helps not only to support the weight of the baby but also with both balance and flexibility. We generally adapt exercises during the course of the pregnancy to ensure the expectant mother is getting the most from the workout. The other great thing about Pilates is that it can also help to relieve lower back pain, energize the body to fight tiredness as well as help control focus and breathing.
"Unless otherwise advised by their doctor, women can continue with their Pilates routines after the first trimester all the way up until birth. After delivery, we normally advise new mums to wait six weeks until they get back to the mat or reformer. They can then start rebuilding the muscles that were weakened with the weight of pregnancy and the stress of giving birth . We see mothers getting back into shape in no time."
