Benefits of Pilates During Pregnancy ( Part 5 )

A quicker recovery & return to pre-pregnancy body

It’s simple… the stronger the body is going in to pregnancy and throughout, the stronger it will be after.  If women lose the connection to their abdominals as they stretch during pregnancy, it will be that much harder to reconnect once the baby is out. It’s not just about abs either.  So much of being a mom involves lifting, bending over and time spent rounded forward (feeding, changing, pushing a stroller, etc) so strong arms and back are also important to prevent permanent tension, imbalances and bad habits.
