The PregXercise Program

Our PregXercise program is purposely designed for all the changes before and after the birth of your baby. This includes a number of preventative measures to help you avoid common issues such as:

  • Increased strain on muscles and ligaments
  • Acute lower back pain
  • Weakened pelvic floor muscles
  • Weakened abdominal muscles
  • Weight gain

Clinical Exercise involving the use of Pilates as prescribed by a Physiotherapist or Accredited Exercise Physiologist is perfect for pregnancy as it works the deep abdominal and pelvic floor muscles and is a low impact form of exercise.

4 Ways PregXercise can help you

Why do PregXercise with us?

Our comprehensive and professional approach reflects the years of personalised care we have given to hundreds of pregnant women.

Here are four of the many reasons you should try PregXercise with MD Health – your experts in Clinical Exercise for pregnancy!

Weight Management

It is necessary for pregnant women to gain some extra weight during the pregnancy as it is required for the healthy growth of your baby. However, the difficulty is losing the weight after pregnancy. PregXercise is especially designed for women to increase their muscle strength and mass. Increase in muscle inadvertently increases your metabolic rate – thus increasing your body’s ability to burn excess fuel such as stored body fat.

It is also easier to get back into shape after giving birth as it only takes a few weeks to get those muscles active again – remember – it doesn’t take long for your brain to remember those Clinical Exercise moves.

Increase in Strength
Due to the increase in laxity on joints, the stronger your muscles are the better off you will be. The strength in the muscles will support the extra strain on your body during pregnancy. Whilst pregnant, your body will be carrying extra weight. Just to make it even more complicated, hormones are produced during pregnancy which causes laxity in your joints – i.e. your joints are more loose than usual – a bit like a rag doll. When this happens, without any muscle strength, your joints which are already lax will take up extra strain from the increase in weight. This will inadvertently lead to pain especially on the lower back. Pregilates is designed to increase your muscle strength especially around all the major joints in your body. Your muscles having been activated and strengthened will in turn take up the excessive strain put on your joints. This will minimise your lower back pain and all the other discomforts suffered during pregnancy.
Increase in Core Control
Preggilates will also develop and improve core stability and pelvic control which will manage and prevent pregnancy-related lower back pain.
Good preparation for Labour
Our Preggilates program will help you build up muscle strength, core stability and pelvic control, these things all help prepare your body for labour. Being in the best condition you can be will also help you to have a faster recovery after the birth.
