Pilates for Pregnancy

Mat / Stretch Classes

In the last five years I have been privileged to become a mother to three beautiful girls. During each pregnancy I continued with Pilates classes until the last few weeks and found it a great way to maintain agility, strength and movement.

I also found  Pilates provided fantastic benefits during childbirth.

As well as having a strong core, I was able to activate deep muscles when needed, helping me get through three labours without needing pain relief and letting me enjoy the arrival of each lovely baby.

Recovery after each birth was quick and I was able to appreciate time with my girls and get back into life quickly.

Pilates has been a part of my life for over ten years and I would strongly recommend it to anyone planning a family.

All thanks to Gillian and The Pilates Studio.
