The Benefits of Yoga During and After Pregnancy

Pose #5: Child's Pose

What it does: Opens up the pelvic area and chest

What to do: Get down on all fours, keeping your knees slightly wider than your hips. Moving slowly, gently rest your bottom between your heels and your forehead on the floor. Arms can be in front of you or at your sides. Repeat as often as you'd like for as long as you'd like.

Pose #6: Pelvic Tilt

What it does: Strengthens the muscles in your lower back, buttocks, and abdomen

What to do: Lie down and bend your knees. Inhale, tilting your pelvis and pubic bone upward; then bring the pelvis back to the starting position. Pregnant women should do this standing against a wall. Repeat six times.
