Our Women’s Health Team of pelvic floor physiotherapists and Pilates instructors have developed a brand new Pilates program that is designed to help you build pelvic floor awareness and posterior chain strength to support you during pregnancy and beyond.
The goal of our Pilates classes are to –
- Build lower body and posterior chain strength to support you in carrying your growing baby through pregnancy.
- Build upper body strength and endurance to help prepare you for carrying your new-born and breastfeeding.
- Develop hip stability and pelvic control to assist you in a safe labour and delivery.
- Lengthening and strengthening your adductor thigh muscles to help support the weight of your growing baby belly and providing your more leverage to push during labour.
Exercise is a safe and beneficial thing to be doing throughout your pregnancy as it can help reduce common pregnancy symptoms and improve your overall health during pregnancy and post-partum. Exercise during pregnancy has proven to help:
- Reduce symptoms of morning sickness, insomnia, stress and anxiety.
- Improve psychological well-being.
- Assist with weight management and prevention of gestational diabetes.
- Reduce and prevent lower back pain.
- Improve labour outcomes by improving pelvic endurance, awareness, stability and strength.
