It is inadvisable to do Pilates between weeks 8 to 14 of pregnancy, unless by special arrangement with your teacher It is also wise to wait six weeks after the birth before resuming exercise.
Pilates exercises are very safe but, as with all forms of physical exercise, it is prudent to consult your doctor before starting Pilates sessions.
These sessions are not a substitute for medical counselling or treatment. If you have any doubts about the suitability of the exercises, you should refer back to your medical practitioner. The teacher can accept no liability for personal injury related to participation in a session if:

• You fail to observe instructions on safety or technique

Exercise should be performed at a pace which feels comfortable for you. Pain is the body’s warning system and should not be ignored. Please inform your teacher immediately if you feel any discomfort during a session. Please also inform your teacher if you felt any discomfort after a previous session.
