Pregnant women often exhibit high rates of psychological-distress mental trauma. Among young pregnant women wanting tools to improve maternal wellbeing is a necessity. Prenatal yoga can help to engage in antenatal education and support. Yoga is widely accepted and participated actively during pregnancy worldwide. Prenatal yoga benefits adult pregnant women and adolescent women in pregnancy-related problems.
Prenatal yoga can:
- Improve sleep.
- Reduce stress and anxiety.
- Increase the strength, flexibility, and endurance of muscles needed for childbirth.
- Decrease lower back pain, nausea, headaches, and shortness of breath.
You can start attending prenatal classes as early in your pregnancy as you like. However, if you are not feeling well, it may be better to wait to start a yoga regimen until your morning sickness has passed, which is usually in the second trimester.
