Why Pilates Can Help Prepare you For Labor

Pilates Breathing Eases Discomfort

Some women have difficulty breathing when they’re pregnant, especially in the second and third trimesters. Women can have a shortness of breath or feel their lungs are affected when their baby stretches and moves. Pilates helps increase lung capacity and even creates more room for the baby within the body. The Pilates breath can help ease the discomfort of muscle spasms, cramps and contractions by encouraging relaxation.
