Pilates and Pregnancy
Pilates offers both mental and physical training. For pre or postnatal women, Pilates exercises are beneficial as they help to concentrate on areas which are vital pre and postnatal. They provide an ideal preparation for labour and an important stage in the recovery after labour.
Some of the benefits of Pilates exercises pre and post natal:
|Abdominal strength is important to help support the weight of the growing uterus, support & act as a splinter to the spine, and aid childbirth|
|Stronger, toned abdominal muscles are less likely to separate, and separation will realign quicker on stronger abdominals.|
|Stronger abdominal muscles aid childbirth|
|Aids relaxation, improves sleep and increases energy levels|
|Reduces backache by improving posture and strengthening abdominals|
|Something fo the mother!!!! To name but a few!|
