With so much to think about before and after your baby comes, planning a pre/post natal exercise routine can get left by the wayside. Think twice! There is an overwhelming amount of research showing the benefits of staying fit during your pregnancy, both for you and your future child. Regular exercise during pregnancy can reduce your risk of many complications, make for a less painful delivery and faster recovery time, and return you to your pre-pregnancy body much quicker. If that doesn’t sway you, your pre-natal exercise program is good for your baby too! Studies show that your baby’s experience in the womb will affect his or her health, even into adulthood.

Pilates is the perfect way to stay fit and healthy during your pregnancy. Pilates strengthens your pelvic floor muscles and transverse abdominus. When these muscles are strong, you put less strain on your lumbar spine and prepare for the physiological stresses of pregnancy before, during and even after birth.
