Q. I am thinking of prenatal yoga class.How can I go about it? I am thinking of prenatal yoga class. I am 10 weeks pregnant and my age is 25. I had heard a lot about this and some said that it helps in labor. I wish to join the class to have healthy labor. What is the best time to go for this and is it safe to follow throughout pregnancy? Will it be an alternative for exercise we generally do during pregnancy? My friend went for regular prenatal yoga class and had healthy labor and the child and mom are doing well. This has created a positive vibration in my mind about pregnancy and labor? How can I go about it?
yoga is good for the muscles and the stretching process. but i will suggest you to consult that first with your ob-gyn doctor, if your pregnancy is totally healthy then you will have nothing to worry about.
another sport that is good for pregnancy is water sports, such as swimming, and also water aerobic. I once wrote an article about water aerobic, if you want to read : http://doctoradhi.com/blog/2008/11/pregnant-moms-try-water-aerobic/
