IF YOU'RE PREGNANT
Pregnancy involves massive changes in your body in a very short period of time.
Your posture changes giving you shoulders, wrist and lower back pain. Your balance changes due to the growing bump. Your ribs elevate and open, restricting your breathing. Your pelvic floor stretches while holding an increasing weight inside of your abdomen. Your abdominal muscles stretch and separate changing the core stability of your body.
Still, your life continues the same, and you need to carry the shopping, hold your other kids, clean the house, go to work and use your body as if nothing was going on.
For generations, women had children with no support to look after their bodies, but nowadays, we want more than just having babies, we also want to enjoy an active life, to maintain a social life, to develop a career, and to do loads of things that require us to have a healthy body.

IT'S NOT JUST ELASTIC BANDS
While pregnant, the fitness goals are:
Preventing or treating lower back pain, pelvic girdle pain, and other musculoskeletal pains that could take the joy of the pregnancy, create stress and even remain chronically after having the baby.
Restoring motor control of pelvic muscles for better biomechanics, preventing pain and increasing functionality.
Keeping you active, which has many benefits for both, you and the baby!
Teaching you important movement strategies and ergonomic advice to stay out of pain and use your body in the most efficient way.
Managing your balance as your gravity centre shifts, which has an impact on pelvic pain, not just accidents.
Preventing pelvic floor complications (incontinence, prolapses...) by improving abdominal stability and trainig your body to manage the intra-abdominal pressure
Giving you important pampering time through holistic massage and breathing work, helping you reduce stress levels (which have an impact on the baby cognitive development as well as on you overall physical wellbeing)
Managing swelling through manual lymphatic drainage.
