These yoga sequences can be practiced throughout each trimester of pregnancy and into the months of motherhood to promote hormonal balance, a healthy delivery, and quick recovery.You may be afraid to try yoga when you’re pregnant for fear of hurting yourself or your baby, but there are actually several yoga poses that are perfectly safe for the both of you. Exercise is recommended for pregnant women, as long as they check with their doctors in advance, and prenatal yoga is a great way to get the job done. According to the Harvard Mental Health Letter, yoga slows the heart and breathing rates and lowers blood pressure, which helps the body more effectively handle stress. This benefits mom both during pregnancy and after the baby is born.Nurturing Life: Active Prenatal Yoga by Samantha Matthews
