Information about yoga classes for pregnant women.
According to a Norwegian study (2012), women that take on some sort of exercise during pregnancy are less likely to report pelvic girdle pain, low back pain and depression. Those who do yoga during their pregnancy will also experience a great sense of well being, enhance their bonding with their child and will be able to approach birth more calmly and confidently.
Maternal benefits appear to be both physcal and psychological in nature. Many common complaints of pregnancy, include fatigue, varicosities and swelling of extremities, are reduced in women who exercise. Additionally, active women experience less insomnia, stress, anxiety and depression. There is some evidence that weight bearing exercise throughout pregnancy can reduce the length of labour and decrease delivery complications.

All women should be encouraged to participate in aerobic and strength-conditioning exercise as part of a healthy lifestyle during their pregnancy. (RCOG)
