YES! Pilates is one of the best forms of exercise pre-natal and post partum women due to its focus on core stability and the muscles in the abdomen, back, and gluteus. Training the lower abdominal muscles will help improve muscle memory, which will help shorten the pushing stage of delivery. It will also train the abdominal wall so that it returns to a flat shape more quickly. (Note: Before you begin any exercise program, check with your health care provider. There may be special considerations for your pregnancy that you need to be aware of.)
