- Good muscle tone before pregnancy helps you to cope very well with the changes in your body during pregnancy and with carrying the weight of your growing baby, and also helps to get your figure back quickly afterwards.
- Increased the tone of the pelvic floor muscles are very beneficial for ease of childbirth.
- It takes some time to understand how to feel and use the postural muscles of the body to a sufficient yet subtle and gentle degree to feel the benefits. Therefore it is of great benefit to learn and practice Pilates before becoming pregnant, before the body changes that occur with pregnancy when a woman feels her body changing and adapting to pregnancy if not daily, on a regular basis.
The general group classes that Anne-Marie offers are perfect for preparing for pregnancy (provided of course that there is no history of pregnancy-related health complications, in which case doctor’s clearance is necessary). Please note however, that the general group classes are not suitable when you are pregnant.
