Foreword by Lynne Robinson, Pilates guru and founder of Body Control Pilates This is a straight-talking, woman-to-woman postnatal recovery guide with a difference: based around Pilates fundamentals and a progressive Pilates programme tailored for postnatal recovery, this book wil...l enable women to establish good posture and breathing habits for life as well as rebuilding strength after birth. Pelvic floor dysfunction is a real issue, affecting 75% of women in their lifetime. We have a culture of suffering in silence, and currently many women simply accept postnatal issues such as pelvic floor weakness and abdominal separation, which can be a cause of pain, embarrassment and mental health problems. Postnatal Pilates is a guide to taking control of postnatal recovery, empowering women with robust information and techniques to take their recovery into their own hands, as well as providing essential signposts on when to seek professional guidance. Posture tips are easily incorporated into day-to-day life (breastfeeding, pushing the buggy, at your desk, picking up your toddler) and the book also features bite-sized health, fitness and wellbeing advice throughout, along with tips for dealing with the physical and mental stresses of early motherhood. Exercise routines are broken down into 10/20/30-minute sessions so that women can realistically aim to commit to them around life with a baby.
