Prenatal Exercises

Prenatal yoga is an exercise program designed specifically for women during pregnancy. Breathing exercises help to reduce the shortness of breath that occurs during pregnancy and the contractions that occur during labour. Mild stretching helps to increase muscle strength, flexibility and persistence. Prenatal yoga also allows for mental relaxation and a state of self-awareness and calmness, allowing pregnant women to accept their changing bodies, strengthen the bond between fetus and mother, and improve prenatal sleep, stress, and anxiety.

About Prenatal Yoga

If you already practiced yoga before pregnancy, you can simply adjust your practice as your labour progresses. Some experts suggest that if you have no experience with yoga before pregnancy, it is best to avoid yoga during the first trimester. However, other experts believe that it is okay to practice yoga at any time, as long as you take care of your body. According to BWY, the UK’s largest yoga organization, it is best to start practicing yoga in the middle of your pregnancy, which is about 14 weeks into pregnancy. Although it won’t hurt your body to practice earlier, if you haven’t practiced yoga before, it is recommended that you start with the most basic relaxation and breathing exercises. If you are pregnant with an in vitro fertilized baby, it is best to wait until after 20 weeks to start.

About Prenatal Yoga
What are the benefits of prenatal yoga?

The most significant benefit of prenatal yoga is that it helps reduce stress and anxiety through proper breathing. Yoga uses the breath as a tool. When we are watching how we breathe, we focus on our bodies. At this point, the breath gives feedback and reminds us to pay attention to whether we are in a comfortable yoga position. Paying attention to your body and breathing and how they relate to each other is important for pregnancy and childbirth. Breathing slowly and deeply and lengthening the process of exhalation and inhalation helps reduce physical and emotional stress both during the practice of yoga and delivery. Proper breathing also helps to relieve labour pains, back pain and all kinds of pain caused by increased blood flow.

During pregnancy, the body releases a special hormone that helps to strengthen the flexibility of the body, especially the hips. Prenatal yoga doesn’t have to be a huge twisting and stretching exercise, but rather a body-building exercise. Doing squats will help your labour while holding a plank will build your arm strength and prepare you to carry your baby in the future.
