Prenatal Yoga is a special part of yogic asanas designed and dedicated to the well-being of pregnant women. With a bigger belly and a new life in place, regular yoga or your workout regime might get strenuous around your joints and pelvic areas.   While the lack of physical activity is not exactly a huge downside, Prenatal yoga is known to be ideal for expectant moms. A prenatal yoga class will include Breathing techniques, Gentle stretches, Postures, and Relaxation process. Practicing them regularly enhances your overall  labor and delivery experience. 


Lower your blood pressure

Studies have shown that pregnant women’s heart rate blood pressure and even the risk of gestational diabetes lowers after doing prenatal yoga — even more so than after doing other low-impact exercises like walking.

Stabilize your moods.

Another study shows that integrated yoga ie) exercise-based yoga combined with meditation, deep relaxation and breathing exercises helps to significantly decrease the levels of depression in moms-to-be.

Cut your risk of preterm labor and other complications

High stress levels have been shown to increase miscarriage and preterm birth rates, and yoga is a great stress-reducer. Women who do yoga — including breathing exercises, posture positions and meditation — for one hour a day have been shown to have a lower preterm labor rate, as well as lower risk of pregnancy-reduced hypertension, compared with women who spent the same amount of time walking.

Improve your delivery experience

The breathing exercises you’ll practice in yoga can be calming when it comes time to push baby out. Plus the many stretching and strengthening moves can improve your delivery experience and your recovery (from either a vaginal birth or C-section), since your core and other important muscles will be stronger and more toned. In fact, one small study found that women who participated in a yoga routine involving just six sessions before birth spent less time overall in labor than those who did not. They also reported they felt less pain and more comfortable during and immediately after labor.

Manage your weight

Like all physical activity, yoga keeps you active, which helps you to better manage your prenatal weight gain.
