Prenatal Pilates is a great way for women to continue exercising in a safe and controlled way during their pregnancy. At Physiolates, we run a prenatal Pilates class as well as offering 1:1 Pilates sessions with our specially trained physiotherapists.
How it works
Pilates incorporates various low impact exercises designed to increase deep core and pelvic floor strength as your body changes throughout your pregnancy. Increasing deep core and pelvic muscle strength gives the spine and pelvis more stability, allowing you to function at your optimum level while pregnant. Increasing stability muscle strength also helps reduce risk of back pain as your baby’s weight increases.

There are many benefits of prenatal Pilates. Benefits include:
