Pregnancy workouts and exercises
THE BENEFITS: Pilates focuses on core strength and postural awareness. “As it’s low impact, it’s unlikely that you’ll overheat or raise your heart rate above 140 beats per minute, which is very important when pregnant,” says Dr Mansberg.
HOW TO DO IT: Most gyms offer pilates classes, or you can ask your doctor or midwife about specialised prenatal classes in your area. Two hour-long sessions a week are recommended.
