MIDWIVES and GPs encourage exercising throughout pregnancy. With its focus on core stability and pelvic floor training, Pilates is one of the best forms of exercise for mums-to-be and postnatal mums.
Pregnancy is a time of enormous physical, hormonal and emotional change. Pilates exercises take this into account, and help you achieve a level of fitness that is beneficial to you and to your baby. The exercises will help make your pregnancy more comfortable and pain-free. You will also learn to relax — invaluable throughout pregnancy, during the birth itself, and as you care for your newborn baby afterwards.
For postnatal mums the exercises do wonders for your overall condition, your figure and mental outlook. The classes help you stabilise and strengthen your core muscles and upper body, to counteract the strain of breastfeeding and carrying baby. The classes, which are suitable for both natural and caesarean births, can be joined at any stage. As the classes are designed for mums accompanied by babies there is no need to find a babysitter.
For seven years Christine Brook has been running antenatal and postnatal classes in the Sonning Common area. Each class has a maximum of six ladies, where you will be provided with exercises suitable for your pregnancy or postnatal stage.
