Your tummy and pelvic floor muscles were put under considerable strain as your baby grew during your pregnancy. Let alone labour & birth. The hormone relaxin connective tissue and ligaments to become lax, making you more susceptible to injury and misalignment’s.
Postnatal Pilates exercise will activate the deepest layer of abdominal muscles, to help stabilise your back and pelvis.
Where you may have once had a six pack. Your tummy muscles (Rectus Abdominals) and the connective tissue between them have been stretched to accommodate your growing baby which will take time to heal, you may have also suffered with back or pelvic pain.
Your pelvic floor muscles have been put under considerable pressure and need to re engage to re connect correctly. You may notice your bladder isn’t what it used to be when you cough or sneeze, or feel a sensation of heaviness down below. What ever you do don’t try trampolining or high impact activity until youve progressively re build stability and strength. You can create problems you never had or make underlying problems worse.
At the centre of this program the tummy, back and pelvic floor are the target, without putting any strain on the Rectus Abdomnals and lax joints.
