Antenatal Pilates

Your body goes through many changes during pregnancy, some visible and some not. One of the most obvious changes is your expanding bump. As your abdominal muscles stretch to allow room for your growing baby, your posture can change, leading to more pressure on your spine and surrounding muscles.

Antenatal Pilates is a fantastic form of exercise during pregnancy as it focuses on gently building core strength. If your abdominal, back, and pelvic floor muscles are toned, they will support a more comfortable pregnancy and delivery. Many women also use the breathing techniques that they become familiar with in Antenatal Pilates classes to help them during labour. Pilates is also famous for helping new mums get their figures back after baby is born!

Our Antenatal Pilates classes are taken in our pilates studio and are small (max. 6 people), which allows our Chartered Physiotherapist to tailor exercises to suit your individual pregnancy requirements. We often integrate equipment such as pilates balls and gentle weights into the class, all of which is suitable for use during pregnancy.

Antenatal Pilates exercises are very gentle on the body and therefore considered low impact and safe. However, we do recommend that you talk to your doctor and get his/her approval in advance of starting Pilates.
