Want to know how postnatal pilates can help with postpartum recovery? Here’s why you should stretch it out at Breathe Pilates...
Motherhood is full of wonderful surprises, but it sure can put your body through the ringer — especially after giving birth. Yup, postpartum recovery is tough, not to mention having to look after your new bub at the same time! And when you have a baby, you’re always doing something. Between work and cleaning and cooking and playing and researching, we’re always left wondering how we can spare the time to get back into it.
This is where Breathe Pilates Postnatal series comes in. They’re a video tutorial series for new mums who are looking to get back into shape — it’s never too early or too late to start! The video series consists of five exercise videos created by Breathe Pilates’ postpartum movement specialists and five videos by a physiotherapist who will explain why these exercises are necessary for postpartum recovery. This means you can just pop it on whenever you’ve got free time!
Why pilates is perfect for new mums
During pregnancy, your body will go through so many changes, including a stretched pelvic floor and stretched abdominal muscles, which can result in pathological conditions such as pelvic organ prolapse and diastasis recti. These stretched muscles will feel weaker after childbirth — and depending on the type of delivery, the nerves surrounding these muscles may take longer to work, too. This is why postnatal pilates is necessary — it helps activate and heal the affected muscles, while giving your spine as much support as possible.
