It’s hard to find time to look after yourself. As a new mother a lot of fitness and exercise will require time away from your baby. Luckily Mums and Bubs Pilates doesn’t require this. This is a style of class that allows you to interact with your new child as you look after yourself.

Mums and Bubs Pilates

Mums and Bubs Pilates offers an array of fantastic advantages for mothers, supported by well-researched findings:

Strengthen Your Core:

Pregnancy often causes abdominal muscles to weaken and stretch, leading to discomfort. However, Pilates provides a secure and effective method to rebuild and strengthen these muscles. A study featured in the Journal of Women’s Health Physical Therapy highlights that Pilates-based exercises can reduce diastasis recti, a common issue during pregnancy.

Enhance Your Posture:

As a new mother it’s easy to find yourself slouching while caring for your baby. Pilates works wonders by strengthening the muscles supporting your spine and posterior chain. Research published in the Journal of Physical Therapy Science indicates that Pilates exercises improve the posture of postpartum women.

Increase Flexibility:

Post-birth your body might feel tight and inflexible. Luckily Pilates can help boost your flexibility and range of motion, which can be a lifesaver if you’re breastfeeding or constantly on the move. A study in the International Journal of Women’s Health and Reproduction Sciences highlights the positive effects of Pilates on postpartum women’s flexibility.

Elevate Your Energy:

The demands of caring for a newborn can be exhausting, but incorporating regular Pilates classes into your routine can make a remarkable difference. According to research in the Journal of Bodywork and Movement Therapies, Pilates-based exercises enhance energy levels and reduce fatigue among postpartum women.

Reduce Stress:

Motherhood can be overwhelming but Pilates is a fantastic stress-buster that promotes wellbeing and positivity. A study in Complementary Therapies in Medicine shows that Pilates-based exercise effectively reduces stress and improves psychological well-being in postpartum women.

Connect with Other Mums:

Joining mums and bubs Pilates classes provides a wonderful opportunity to connect with fellow mothers who share similar experiences. You can create a supportive community and exchange parenting tips. A study in BMC Pregnancy and Childbirth found that group exercise programs, like Pilates classes, boost social support and decrease stress among postpartum women.

Bond with Your Baby:

Our mums and bubs Pilates classes are thoughtfully designed to include your baby, enabling you to bond and interact with your little one. Research in the Journal of Physical Therapy Science suggests that postpartum women who partake in Pilates classes with their babies report experiencing more positive emotions and enhanced maternal-infant interaction.
