“I started Pilates with Jo 6 months before I conceived for a second time and continued throughout my pregnancy - I had a significantly easier pregnancy and managed a vbac at home to deliver my second angel. A truly unexpected bonus has been how I've so easily lost weight post partum. I have managed to get into jeans after 3 weeks that took 7 months after my first child! I have NEVER felt better!”

5 Top Tips to keep your body healthy in Pregnancy
1. Stretch out your hamstrings and hip flexors- these groups of muscles influence your pelvic alignment- something that is already challenged as your bump grows. Stretching them out will help keep your lower back comfortable.
2. Focus on your pelvic floor connections- don’t just think about this once baby is here. Set up good foundations and you’ll be pleased you did!
3. Do not over-work your abdominal muscles- it’s important to protect the mid line of the body to offset the risk of Diastasis Recti (separating of the abdominal wall) which can cause back and stability problems.
4.Keep active- include some cardio vascular work – walking is free and easy!
5.Get plenty of rest- your body is undergoing the miraculous feat of growing another human being- so give it chance to re-cooperate with plenty of sleep.
