Pregnancy (antenatal) pilates modifies the principles of regular pilates exercises for pregnancy. Each exercise is designed taking into account pregnancy related body changes. The classes also teach the correct technique for pelvic floor exercises. Approximately 60% of women develop incontinence problems during and/or after pregnancy (British Journal of Midwifery, 2005). By training your pelvic floor muscles during your pilates class, you can reduce the likelihood of this. Classes are suitable for pregnant women in their 2nd and 3rd trimester.
***Please note you can join a pregnancy course at any point once you are in your second or third trimester.
