Pilates in general is wonderful for strengthening your pelvic floor muscles. Your pelvic floor forms part of your deep core muscles. During Pilates, we aim to activate the deep core muscles throughout exercises. During postnatal Pilates classes, there will be an additional focus on specific exercises to reduce pelvic floor weakness. 

After your 6 week postnatal check up with your healthcare provider, you should be cleared for exercise, unless you had some complications or a c-section, in which case it could be longer. 

I would thoroughly recommend speaking to a women’s health physiotherapist if you have any physical concerns about returning to exercise. You may benefit from a ‘Mummy MOT’ for a more in depth health check. Here’s some more info:
