Staying fit and active during pregnancy will help a woman feel stronger and recover faster after giving birth. When it comes to pregnancy and birth, though, it's vital to remember that everyone is different, so always check with your doctor before returning to any vigorous activity.

What are the benefits to pregnant mums in continuing to work out?

Exercise releases endorphins, or "happy hormones," which assist to relieve stress. Exercise can also help with the stiff back and neck that comes with later-term pregnancy. Our prenatal Pilates programs teach expectant mothers how to safely and effectively stabilize their bodies while strengthening and releasing stress.

What is diastasis recti, and what important things do we need to know about it?

Diastasis recti occurs when the two major parallel bands of muscle that meet in the centre of the belly separate due to increased abdominal wall strain during pregnancy. It doesn't hurt, and you might not even realize it's there, but it's crucial to examine since a separation can cause low back pain, pelvic instability, urine incontinence, and decreased abdominal wall functional strength. Specific exercises can be given to assist repair the separation by strengthening your core and regaining control of your abdominal muscles.
