Simple Everyday Changes for Life

Postnatal Pilates with Baby

Restore and repair the core & floor.
Flattern the mummy tummy! Reduce aches & Pains! Bring Baby!

Postnatal pilates with babies runs on  Thursday mornings at Datchet Baptist church hall and babies are welcome (until mobile).

After pregnancy and labour the core muscles are weakened and stretched (the deep abdominals/back and pelvic floor.) This results in the wrong muscles gripping on to support the core which can then cause aches and changes to posture.

During pregnancy often the abdominal muscles separate and pilates can help encourage these muscles to realign and come back together. Doing the wrong exercises can make this appear worse. It is important to make sure as you exercise these muscles that they remain flat and don’t dome.

Pilates helps stretches the tightened muscles and strengthens the core so that those muscles relax and allow the correct muscles to work.

We work slowly, so those who have never done pilates before, had a more complicated labour, 2nd or 3rd time mum, or those having issues with pelvic floor control can feel confident exercising. For those who want to work a little harder and core is functioning correctly I give you more challenging options.

Benefits of Postnatal Pilates

  • Strengthens pelvic floor following pregnancy and labour to reduce risk of incontinence & prolapse of the abdominal organs.
  • Realigns abdominal muscles and strengthens them to help improve appearance safely and effectively. This helps reduce lower back ache
  • Strengthen deeper core back muscles to reduce lower back ache so that the superficial muscles relax.
  • Relieves tension in the upper back muscles often tight following pregnancy and hours of feeding the little one.
  • Increases relaxation which helps reduces stress and postnatal depression.
  • Meet other new mums in the local area
