Supporting Mothers who struggle with postpartum aches, pains and stress...

What if you knew how to take care of your body postpartum?

What if you learned tools to find your way through motherhood?

Motherhood is a time of profound Life & Body changes!

Mothers need nurturing while they are caring for their little ones but, the task of self-care can easily get lost or, become confusing when dealing with both baby AND body changes after birth.

Pilates is one of the most versatile and adaptable mind-body conditioning systems, allowing it to fit perfectly to the needs of a new mum.

Post-Natal Pilates Questions & Answers

When Can I Start?
You can start Post-Natal Pilates classes 6-8 weeks following a vaginal delivery or 10-12 weeks post caesarean section birth. You need to be cleared to return to gentle exercise by your health care professional. Contact us for advice if you feel unsure.

Can I bring my baby to class?
We highly recommend that you take this one-hour a week for yourself. Taking care of yourself and your well-being is one of the important keys for postpartum ease! However, if you have no one to mind your baby you can bring pre-crawler babies to class with you. 

Can Pilates help with post-pregnancy conditions like diastasis recti or incontinence?
What about postpartum depression?
Yes, yes and...probably.
Post-natal Pilates supports the regeneration of abdominal and pelvic floor muscle tissues that were stretched out during pregnancy and delivery. With gentle reactivation, releasing tight muscles and creating an environment that supports healing, Pilates help speed up the process of recovering. As for Postpartum depression, movement & exercise are known to positively affect the brain and nervous system and can help with hormonal influxes and mood. Self-care and re-connecting also have a positive effect on the mind and helps mothers feel better about themselves.

Is Pilates good for C-Section Recovery?
Yes. After 10-12 weeks, if there are no other complications, Post-Natal Pilates will help reactivation of the transversus abdominus to start regaining core strength. Strengthening the abdominal muscles helps increase circulation around the wound, which promotes healing. Activation of the abdominal muscles pulls through the scar, which helps the scar heal with more mobility and in turn alleviate pain & stiffness in the lumbar-pelvic region.
