I just can’t recommend this enough.
Whilst keeping up exercise is important, and walking and swimming are wonderful, during pregnancy yoga benefits the prenatal body in lots of ways.
Carrying a baby can put a lot of stress on the body and mind, your posture can suffer with the additional weight of the baby and your changing body. Your hormones can be all over the place and you can get extremely tired which is why it is so important to practice and move in a safe, constructive and mindful way.
Connecting to the breathe is not only useful in labour, but also helps by creating space as your baby grows while enabling a sense of relaxation and control.
