Good general health is one of the factors that will influence your fertility and thus your capacity to fall pregnant. Pregnancy places a load on your body, especially your abdominal muscles, pelvis and lower back. Pilates focuses specifically on these areas.
Gaining more strength in these regions will help your body to cope with the changes that occur during pregnancy. While you are pregnant, you are less able to exercise vigorously and will lose a certain amount of fitness and strength just from being pregnant. Pilates can help you to maintain your strength and general fitness ready for motherhood.
