In the postnatal class, we assist the client to heal from the tremendous changes that the body has gone through during the various stages of pregnancy and delivery.
The most crucial component during the postnatal period is restoring the normal function of the pelvic floor muscles and reconnect the walls of the abdominal muscles. The abdominal muscles will be train to work by pulling in and up, not pushing out.
Postural alignment and diastasis recti issues will also be address during the postnatal session.
The Pilates instructor that works with the postnatal clients should have knowledge about the physical transformation and how it impacts the musculoskeletal system of the client's body.
