Can yoga actually help you get pregnant?! Studies show that yoga can help reduce stress, which can affect fertility. Some experts also believe that specific poses can help promote baby-making by increasing blood flow to your pelvis, stimulating hormone-producing glands, and releasing muscle tension.
Click to the following slides for a series of fertility-boosting yoga poses by Eden Fromberg, D.O, a board-certified gynecologist and yoga teacher in New York City. Do the workout four to five times a week for best results.
High Lunge With Side Stretch
Performing this pose gives your body a baby-making boost by opening your hips and pelvis. You'll know you're doing it correctly if you feel a stretch in the front of your pelvis and hip flexors, and along the side of your torso and hip.
Stress and anxiety are fertility killers. Help increase your fertility just by relaxing and cooling down at the end of your workout.
