experienced the birth of our second (most heaviest baby) child, Sebastien. I experienced excruciating hip and lower back pain throughout the pregnancy and afterwards too. I had a three finger separation in my abdominals, and thanks to our brilliant Physiotherapists I was able to tighten my abdominal muscles and become pain free again through one on one Pilates sessions. I couldn’t believe how helpful Pilates was, with just some small movements, through persistence, I was able to function normally and gain my pre baby strength back again. I was completely sold on the benefits of Pilates, but then I realised that my Physio’s were prescribing Pilates as a prevention and cure, but had to refer them outside of our practice for group classes, at that time we did not have the space. After much blood sweat and tears, we knocked down our back wall and were able to extend our practice to include a brand new reformer Pilates studio.
