Pregnancy can be hard on a woman’s body. Through clinical and personal experience, the team of physiotherapists at Bodyreform have discovered that the most pain-free, active and agile women are the ones who have sought physio advice concerning their pregnancy and who have practiced clinical Pilates, before, during, and after pregnancy.
Pelvic and sacroiliac joint pain are common amongst women within the first trimester right up until delivery date. The best management for lower back and pelvic pain is to start postural and abdominal static strengthening very early on. In fact, our best pregnant clients are the ones who have practiced Pilates with us prior their pregnancy. Plus, they bounce back into a Pilates class only weeks after birth. We have even had some clients practice Pilates on our machines during their 40th week of pregnancy!
