Abstract [sv]

One of the main causes to women gaining weight and stop training is pregnancy. Core

stability is one of the big components when it comes to the balance. A good way to increase

core stability is by pilates.

The purpose in this study is trying to improve the women’s functional core stability, balance

and general wellbeing after pregnancy. The study involves eight postnatal women. A base

program on a swiss ball has been trained during 10 weeks, both pre- and post measurements

have been done.

The results show an improvement of the majority of the women, some of them with a

considerable improvement on the practical tests. The majority of women are feeling better

after the study than before, videlicet the general wellbeing have been improved.

To call it a scientific study we would have needed considerably more trial persons. We would

also have needed a control group to compare the test results and the questionnaire. So for that

reason can we not conclude if the positive results are a natural change after the pregnancy, or

if our choices of exercises during the study actually have given an improved balance and

stability.
