Pilates for pregnancy and new mamas

We welcome Ellesse Hawkins from Fleur Pilates in Charlestown to the podcast. She is talking to us about preparing your body for the changing demands of pregnancy, birth and post-partum. Being pregnant and running after a toddler, Ellesse knows all about being busy. Even with that craziness she emphasizes the importance of squeezing in a bit of time for self care. She is an ex-ballerina with a background in Pilates and here provides some tips on how to strengthen the lower abdominals and pelvic floor.
