Ante Natal and Post Natal Pilates

Ante/Post Natal Pilates

All ante and post natal Pilates classes are led by Chartered Physiotherapists who are experienced in the rehabilitation of women’s health conditions such as pelvic girdle pain and pelvic floor dysfunction.

 

The classes

You will be assessed prior to commencing a class to establish suitability for participation and to ensure that the exercises that you do are both safe and appropriate for your needs.

There are many benefits of Pilates in the ante and post natal periods including:

Promoting awareness and correction of common postural changes associated with pregnancy.

Improved mobility and strength of the mid-upper back (thoracic spine) which is an area that often gets stiff and weakened during pregnancy.

Strengthening of the gluteal (buttock) muscles which in turn promote low back and pelvic stability.

Improved function of the pelvic floor muscles.

Positive physical and mental effects of exercise during this time.

 

To be eligible to join the ante natal class you must be at least 16 weeks pregnant and 6-8 weeks following delivery for the post natal class.
