Is basic pilates good for core strength in pregnant women?

Try basic Pilates exercises as part of your fitness program during pregnancy.

Five basic Pilates moves that are straightforward enough for you to try on your own include The Saw, a Modified Leg Front Pull, the Spine Twist, the Side Kick and Back Strength, which are detailed below. Focus on keeping your abs contracted (as much as you can) and your pelvis in a neutral position. Gently take your body through each movement eight to ten times, making sure that your breathing is regular and controlled.
