Pre and Post Natal Pilates classes in Market Harborough

About me

I have industry recognised Pre and post natal exercise qualifications through a respected Pilates organisation. I can offer help and support to ladies who already have a background in Pilates and fitness, but also to those who wish to use Pilates for the first time during pregnancy. During pregnancy a lot of changes happen to the body and Pilates is an excellent way to strengthen your core muscles, relieve backache etc with an exercise program tailored to your needs.

I am also a Father who taught my partner Pilates during and after her pregnancy, so I understand first-hand the benefits of pre and post natal Pilates.

Why is Pilates good for pregnancy?

Pre Natal Pilates

During pregnancy your body undergoes huge changes; physically, emotionally and hormonal. Exercise in general needs to be altered to take these important factors into account.

Pilates can help you prepare for labour and provides such benefits as:

  • Helps maintain and improve the condition of both your abdominal and pelvic floor muscles
  • Helps promote relaxation and alleviates stress
  • Helps reduce back pain and tension
  • Helps maintain and improve posture

Post Natal Pilates

Post natal exercise and Pilates can be started approximately from 6 weeks (normal delivery) but consult with your doctor or medical professional first before doing so. The aims of post natal Pilates are to:

  • Strengthen your pelvic floor muscles, weakened by pregnancy.
  • Retrain your abdominal muscles to help support your spine and pelvis and recover your pre-baby shape.
  • Re-educate correct posture following the natural changes in your body through pregnancy.
  • Strengthen your upper body teaching you how to lift and hold your growing baby to avoid back problems.
  • Help regain/correct posture
