Yoga During pregnancy – very important for smooth delivery

Yoga During pregnancy very important for smooth delivery

Our body changes at various phases of life. However, during pregnancy, the changes happen at a very fast pace. To maintain and adapt to them a female’s body needs help. Certain exercises and postures in yoga are the best to help the body adapt. Yoga which originated in ancient India has the power to calm the mind and strengthen the body. For pregnant females, yoga helps in strengthening the muscles and lower body to support the growing baby bump.

Benefits of Pre-Natal Yoga for Expecting Mothers

Benefits of Pre-Natal Yoga for Expecting Mothers

1. Prepares the body for labour and delivery Our body tends to contract when we are afraid. This is what happens during the time of delivery as well. The fear of labour pain makes the body contract which makes the normal delivery difficult. Deep breathing exercises along with stretching during the yoga train the body to relax during the labour pain.

2. Provides relief from regular pregnancy complaints The most common problems that a female faces are lower back pain, nausea, sleeplessness, headache and shortness of breath. These all could be taken care of or minimized by doing yoga under a trained instructor. By stretching and toning muscles, you can help blood healthily circulate throughout the body. Also, deep breathing can bring much-needed oxygen to your baby and your muscles.

3. Tones important musclesPrenatal yoga tones the physical body, especially the pelvic floor, hip and abdominal core muscles, in preparation for the birthing process. Building and maintaining muscle tone during pregnancy, with yoga poses like lunges and gentle back-bends, can help minimize the aches and pains of those nine months, and are key in bringing your body back to a toned condition after delivery.

I have made all the pregnancy visits to Dr. Amita Shah, and my end-to-end experience with her has been wonderful. I was someone who was absolutely terrified of needles, but with Dr. Amita Shah's constant guidance and good consultation, I could overcome a lot of my stress and worries related to delivery as well as during the pregnancy phase. Both the doctor and her clinic staff are helpful and amiable. She was all ears when it came to even the tiniest of details and issues, listened calmly and resolved all my issues. She was also constantly available via phone and WhatsApp to clear any doubts that popped up in my head in addition to the in-clinic visits where she eased my mind and resolved plenty of my concerns. At the time of my delivery, she offered complete mental support and her presence itself offered calmness to me. I highly recommend Dr. Amita Shah for her professionalism, empathy and supportive attitude. By God's grace, we are blessed with a baby girl in December, and I have been on the path to a smooth and fast recovery since then.

I consulted Dr Amita for my Scar Endometriosis, she not only understood my problem but at the same time explained the entire ailment in detail. She assisted me at every step, her calm demeanour and patience made it very comfortable for me. The best part was she was so approachable although the process. I became a fan of her the way she did my dressings, removed my drain pipe with no pain extremely softly, she has magic in her hands .The best gynaecologist I have ever met. God Bless her always. Thank you so much.
