We know that during pregnancy a person undergoes many big changes. These physical changes may cause uncomfortable or painful symptoms, so preparing your body in advance can make all the difference to your pregnancy and birth experience.
Pilates is especially ideal for pregnancy because it works with deep foundational stability, strengthening and softening the pelvic floor muscles, body alignment, building strength in the areas that are needed for birth and early parenting, stretching safely with guidance and learning to breathe in different ways to work with your body.
The reformer bed is the perfect place to do pregnancy pilates because you are supported, movement can be adjusted easily to improve form, specific muscle groups can be isolated, it can adapt to all resistance levels, exercises can be modified and it is safe for everybody.
