Product Description

Book Description

Pregnancy should be a wonderful, enriching experience, but it's natural to have concerns about the ways it affects your body, moods and diet. This book enables you to forget those worries and focus on enjoying the experience. For those planning to conceive, a programme to strengthen the pelvic floor and deep abdominals combined with a prenatal diet plan puts you in great shape to cope with the next nine months. In the first trimester, advice focuses on coping with morning sickness and relaxation. In the second trimester, exercise can be introduced, and the book explores how your body adapts to the baby's demands and gives tips on boosting your energy. Exercises for the third trimester help you overcome discomfort and prepare for birth. Get back into shape with postnatal exercise (including very gentle exercise after caesarean deliveries) and follow the tips to aid breastfeeding. Body Control Pilates, with its emphasis on core stability and safety, is ideally suited to make the most of this special time.

5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Lara Z on 2 Jan. 2010
Format: Paperback
Having done pilates for about 6 years before becoming pregnant, I wanted clear information about what exercises would be safe and beneficial for me during my pregnancy. This book certainly fits the bill - excellent introductory section, plenty of information about what actually happens to your muscles etc during pregnancy and very clear descriptions of every exercise, along with photos of them being performed. I have found the workouts for each trimester really useful. Each trimester has 5 recommended workouts which take about 20-30 minutes, incorporate a range of exercises for different muscle groups and are easy to do on your living room floor! Also very relaxing.

Having done plenty of pilates I find the exercise instructions really easy to follow and am fairly clear what I am aiming for - I'm not sure whether I would be as confident if I had never done pilates, but obviously this will be the case with any book.

This book is an excellent companion for those who already practice pilates and for beginners.

Sound advice on which exercises are suitable for beginners or those formerly practicing pilates.

Well laid out and easy to follow.
