A verbal presentation of a community based postnatal Pilates programme delivered as part of an EU funded campaign of activities to raise awareness of the importance of physical exercise and healthy diet in pregnancy and the postnatal period. The pilot study evaluated the experiences of women attending a community based postnatal Pilates programme designed to assist physical postnatal recovery and raise participants awareness of the importance of a healthy lifestyle in the postnatal period.
The presentation will include a discussion of the findings from the pilot, what must be considered when working with postnatal women to deliver lifestyle interventions and current guidelines on exercising in pregnancy and the postnatal period.
