Mila Kunis’ Pregnancy Workout? Prenatal Yoga!

Pregnant Mila Kunis stepped out for a yoga class on May 1, just as a study out of Manchester University suggests taking up yoga in pregnancy can ease stress—and reduce women’s fear of childbirth. Apaprently, taking just one prenatal yoga class can cut anxiety in moms-to-be by a third!

Anxiety can be at an all-time high for first-time pregnant women, like Mila. You’re so excited to have this adorable little being inside you (in Mila’s case, a girl!), and you want to make sure you’re doing everything you can to keep that peanut as healthy as possible. That can lead to stress about what you’re eating, how much you’re eating, what you shouldn’t be eating, how much sleep you’re getting…the list could go on and on.

The good news: Research has determined that working out with a baby onboard has oodles of benefits beside just stress relief. All of that core work from yoga can make giving birth easier and ease some of your overtaxed body’s pains. Keeping your weight down while being pregnant can help to prevent your child from being obese in later years, and some scientific evidence says your physical activity now can even make your baby smarter because when you work out for just 20 minutes three times a week, the baby is getting more oxygen and blood, leading to excelled brain development.

Mila’s not the only pregnant celebrity to swear by prenatal yoga. Recent mamas Drew Barrymore, Jessica Alba and Miranda Kerr all made a point to practice yoga while pregnant, too!
