Benefits of Pilates after Pregnancy
The female body experiences many changes during pregnancy and in the postpartum period. In particular, women may experience reduced core and pelvic floor strength and stability, changes to posture, ligamentous laxity and general muscular tightness and weakness.
1. Post-natal Pilates is one of the best ways to teach and develop optimal pelvic floor function, the key muscles that are often left stretched and weakened during delivery.
2. Strengthens your upper back and opens your chest, which can get tired from carrying and/or nursing your little one.
3. Strengthens your inner and outer hips to help support your pelvis after it was stretched and relaxed from all the hormones running through your body.
4. Encourages proper, slow, yet precise, strengthening of your abdominals, hips and back, which helps relieve lower back and pelvic floor discomfort from pregnancy.
5. Stretches tight muscles that haven’t been used in a long time.
6. Can help repair diastasis recti, which is a split down the center of your abs (a common mistake is doing sit ups and planks right after you have a baby).
7. Gives you some well-deserved ME time!
