Pregnancy and Post-Natal Recovery with Deborah

If you hadn’t noticed already, we love to talk about the benefits of Pilates for pregnant women and mums. And there is a good reason for this, aside from scientific studies we’ve seen many of our Instructors and clients enjoy a more positive pregnancy (and recover more quickly post-partum) because of their sessions with us. You don’t just need to take our word for it though.

At Breathe Pilates, we love to share stories so we have decided to start a series of post-natal journeys with our Instructors and clients. This week the spotlight is on our newest mum, Dr Deborah Wong who shares with us her pregnancy, labor, and her recovery experience.
