Pregnancy and Postnatal Pilates benefits
Why is Pregnancy and Postnatal Pilates a beneficial exercise class?
The importance of preparing your well-being for the birthing process and journey into motherhood is extremely important. Research suggests that preparing the pelvic floor muscles before and during pregnancy provides higher birth outcomes and the degree of healing is increased after delivery (whether that is by c-section or vaginal delivery).
Pregnancy and postnatal Pilates with Eliza offers women a supportive environment to embrace exercise during pregnancy and motherhood. Classes recognise that energy levels fluctuate during these periods of immense and beautiful change and encourage all attending to honour their individual needs. Exercises are specifically chosen to improve pelvic floor function, deep core strength and prevent common aches and pains that can at times crop up during pregnancy, breastfeeding, and beyond.
One of the main complaints from both pre and post pregnancy is back and pelvic girdle pain. Pregnancy and postnatal Pilates can help ease the pain through using a range of exercises that are specifically tailored for the pregnancy and postnatal period and carried out by a qualified Physiotherapist.
