Prenatal Pilates: A Safe & Supportive Choice

Can you do Pilates when pregnant?

Yes, absolutely! Our Prenatal Pilates program is a gentle yet effective way to stay active and healthy during pregnancy. Our reformer Pilates program creators are well-versed in tailoring exercises to suit your changing body and its unique needs. Whether it's mat Pilates or other Pilates exercises, doing Pilates in the prenatal stage offers numerous benefits for exercising as a pregnant person, including:

  • Improved core strength: Strengthening your core during pregnancy can alleviate back pain and support the growing weight of your baby.
  • Enhanced posture: As your body changes, maintaining good posture becomes crucial. Prenatal Pilates helps you do just that.
  • Reduced stress: Pregnancy can be a stressful time. Pilates, with its focus on breathing and concentration, is an excellent way to manage stress.
  • Pelvic floor strengthening: Strengthening the pelvic floor is always a great idea, but it can be especially beneficial for pregnant women. It can help in birth preparation, childbirth and postpartum recovery.

Postnatal Pilates: Recovery & Rejuvenation

Once you've welcomed your little one into the world, your body deserves some special attention. Postnatal Pilates is a gentle reintroduction to exercise after childbirth. It aids your body in the recovery process by:

  • Restoring core strength: After childbirth, your core muscles may be weakened. Postnatal Pilates helps rebuild this strength.
  • Pelvic floor fehabilitation: Postnatal Pilates focuses on re-establishing a strong and functional pelvic floor, which is crucial for post-birth recovery.
  • Enhancing energy levels: New mothers often experience fatigue. Postnatal Pilates can help boost your energy levels and improve your overall well-being.
  • Stress relief: Caring for a newborn is demanding. Postnatal Pilates offers a much-needed mental break, reducing stress and promoting relaxation.

Frequently Asked Questions

When should I start prenatal Pilates?

You can start enjoying the benefits of prenatal Pilates whenever you want. You don't necessarily have to begin during your first trimester. In fact, if you already do another Pilates practice at this point, it's still safe to continue this. However, you should be sure to let your pilates instructor know. You should definitely make the switch to prenatal Pilates at week 13, or your second trimester. This is because the abdominal and stomach exercises we do in standard Pilates may now be inappropriate.

What is the difference between Pilates and prenatal Pilates?

Compared to standard Pilates, our prenatal program has an emphasis on the transverse abdominis muscles. The transverse abdominis muscles are deep muscular layers that support your waist. Rather than trying to increase the strength of your abdominal contraction, like you practice in standard Pilates, prenatal Pilates is instead a workout more geared towards building up your body's support.

What is pre and post natal Pilates?

Your pelvic floor muscles are often stretched and made weak during your delivery. That's where Pilates comes in. Pre and post natal Pilates are a great way to develop good pelvic floor function. Not only will pre and post natal Pilates help you learn how to support your pelvic floor, but these exercises will also help you in strength building, and will reduce the likelihood of pelvic and back pain, prolapse and incontinence. It will help you deal with the posture changes, reduced core and pelvic floor strength, ligament laxity and muscular weakness and general tightness you experience in pregnancy and postpartum.

When should I start post natal Pilates?

Safety is always important, at any stage of your pregnancy. That's why we recommend waiting at least six weeks after having your baby before you try post natal Pilates. Also, if you have had a caesarean section, wait until you have had your post natal check up or assessment to know if post natal Pilates is safe for you.
