The importance of Pilates during pregnancy
During pregnancy, your body goes through alot of changes. due to the load of the baby getting heavier, our bodies find ways to cope with that excess pressure and create movement patterns that aren't ideal.
By strengthening your body, with a strong focus on glutes, hamstrings and posture, this will help prepare your body for the strong demands of birth, post baby and beyond.
back muscles are important to strengthen due to the breasts growing during pregnancy, shoulders start to hunch forward and then when baby comes along, breast feeding with that same posture of shoulders rounded creates even more discomfort in your back.
