Samenvatting

Sex-specific care of musculoskeletal impairments is an increasingly important topic in women’s health. It is estimated that almost all women experience a certain degree of musculoskeletal discomfort during pregnancy and 25% have at least some momentarily disabling symptoms. The purpose of this review is to provide a guide focusing on the musculoskeletal disorders which affect women during pregnancy. Evidence will be provided for the benefits of exercising during pregnancy. Regular exercise is promoted for its overall health benefits and there are very few instances that should prevent healthy, pregnant women from following the same recommendations. This review will mention Pilates as an option for exercising during pregnancy. Pilates focuses on strength, flexibility, balance and inner awareness as a form of strength and flexibility training that can be done by someone at any level of fitness. It promotes a feeling of physical and mental well-being and also develops inner physical awareness. Pregnant women who practice Pilates exercise can develop body alignment, improve concentration and develop body shape and tone during pregnancy. Conclusion(s): We consider Pilates to be a safe way of exercising, but we recommend that women consult their doctor before starting any exercise program to ensure that the body is equipped to handle it. The dynamic moves challenge women by helping build muscular endurance (for labor and delivery!), flexibility and, most importantly, good balance, something needed as pregnancy progresses. Because the moves are so controlled Pilates can be a great choice during pregnancy since you have time to adjust your posture, and alignment for maximum support and challenge.
