RESEARCH ON THE BENEFITS OF PRENATAL YOGA
This study provides evidence that regular yoga practice in the last 10–12 weeks of pregnancy
- Reduces pain in labor
- Shortens labor
How Does Prenatal Yoga Do That?
Breath awareness and tuning into one’s body releases tension, and transforms the laboring mother’s perception of pain.
Yoga movements, combined with breathing increase circulating endorphins and serotonin.
Practicing yoga postures over time stimulates the parasympathetic nervous system, decreasing one’s need to actively respond to unpleasant physical sensations.
Prenatal strategies that help women prepare emotionally and physically for labor may help reduce pain and suffering and optimize wellbeing in childbirth by providing coping skills and increasing self-confidence and a sense of mastery.
