Pregnancy and childbirth have a major impact on a woman’s body affecting all system of the body. This can lead to shortness of breath, tiredness, swelling, varicose veins, postural changes and issues, such as, lower back pain, pelvic joint pain, carpal tunnel symptoms, rectus diastasis (separation of the abdominal muscles) and urinary incontinence.
Pilates is an ideal exercise designed to strengthen the deep abdominal and pelvic floor muscles. These exercises can be performed in positions that are suitable for all clients and pregnant women. It can take the stress off the back and pelvic floor, and help position the baby for delivery.
