The most important reason why many women choose Pilates as one of the best exercises to do, both during and after their pregnancy is because Pilates is very adaptable. Most Pilates exercises can be modified as your body and abilities change. The modifications help you keep the purpose of the exercise, which is great to build core strength. If your abdominal strength, back and pelvic floor/Kegel muscles are toned, they will deliberately support a more comfortable pregnancy and delivery. No doubt, new mothers will get their figures back after the baby is born and avoid the all-too-typical Pot Belly and Dropping Breasts. It is important for you to find a facility that provides Certified Pilates Instructors who have already taken the ISP or Injury and Special Populations Course that can support your practice.
