Lysa

"I found the breathing we practiced very useful during labor. Same with the positions we used."

Traditional Yoga

Prenatal yoga classes generally offer gentler, less strenuous sequences of poses and a greater use of props to support the body in poses. Your teacher may offer a number of variations and use props (belts, bolsters, blocks, or chairs) to make poses comfortable and available to you during each stage of your pregnancy; you may also use more props as your baby grows.

Pelvic Floor Awareness

Kegels are great but they are not the end-all-be-all pelvic floor exercise. It is equally as important to stretch and relax your muscles as it is to strengthen them. Proper diaphragmatic breathing incorporates strengthening as well as relaxation and lengthening of the muscles that many people forget to stretch! Preparing your muscles for labor and delivery through ideal breathe work can potentially help shorten the first and second stages of labor as well as reduce the likelihood of having urinary incontinence during pregnancy and postpartum.

BreatheWork 

 Just simply using breathing by itself is probably not going to be effective unless you combine it with other methods such as hypnosis, relaxation, guided imagery, continuous support, or a variety of other comfort measures.

Breathing for pain relief during labor can be made widely accessible to pregnant people through childbirth education. Breathing should be slow, deep, controlled and conscious or voluntary, not automatic. We play with these explorations and adding sound or other vocal activities with our breath. 

Mediation

Women – and their partners – who practice meditation often feel empowered by the realization that their thoughts, feelings, and physical sensations including discomfort are manageable thanks to the awareness and benevolence fostered by their practice. For expecting mothers and their partners, these feelings often include anxiety and fear of pain. Mindfulness allows women to relate differently to pain and helps reduce the impact of stressful feelings that might be passed along to the fetus.
