Benefits

Prenatal pilates helps by strengthening the core- abs, back & hips so that your body can carry the additional baby weight easier. Pilates uses breathing exercises to focus on core engagement. Proper breathing will increase your mood, relieve stress, and this same breathing technique can be used during labour if you prefer.  

Baby Bumps are Beautiful!
But you won't feel so pretty if you're in pain.

As your baby inside grows each week, your abdominal muscles become stretched and weakened. This imbalance can lead to strain and pain in the back and hips. The pelvic floor muscles can become weaker under the weight of your baby, and this may lead to incontinence. 

 

Prenatal pilates gives your body more support and opportunity to prevent these unwanted side effects so that you’ll have a happy, pain-free third trimester, and more strength to ease labour.
