Is it safe to do pilates during pregnancy?

Not only is Pilates a safe exercise to do during pregnancy, it is also designed around eight core principles that benefit pregnant women in particular. Pilates is a non-impact workout that increases flexibility, strength, and muscle tone. Because it focuses on your core, practicing Pilates on a regular basis can improve posture, alleviate backaches, and ultimately help with labor and delivery. Plus, it will boost your mood and energy level. Choose a prenatal class if you can. Otherwise, let the instructor know you’re pregnant so she can help you modify or skip any risky moves.

If your abdominals, back, and pelvic floor/Kegel muscles are toned, they will support a more comfortable pregnancy and delivery. Pilates is also famous for helping new moms get their figures back after baby is born!
