Congratulations! You have a new addition (or additions) to your family! Getting back in shape after having a baby can seem an intimidating and time consuming task. But Pilates can help speed the process along. Pilates offers the perfect post-natal workout and can be practiced by new mothers in varying post-natal stages. It is a wonderful workout for the new mother.
Postnatal helps to re-gain the core strength in the abdominals as you work towards a safe and effective recovery- taking into account any added injuries or imbalances. Easing back into your Pilates practice, you should have given yourself time for your abdominal muscles to recover prior to joining a postnatal Pilates Mat class. It is recommended to wait a minimum of 6 weeks and possibly longer depending on the specifics of your delivery.
** Babies 6 weeks until they are crawling are welcome!
