We learned via Befitmom that there are many benefits to exercising and practicing yoga while pregnant. 

Stretching benefits both the body and mind during pregnancy. The article stated that, "In addition to improving your physical well being, stretching can boost your emotional health. Clinical studies of meditation, biofeedback, yoga, and similar relaxation practices have long since established the connection between emotional states and physical health. “ 

The benefits: 

  • The mind-body connection is a two-way street. Just as stretching helps to align and center the spine, so it also helps you to become more mentally centered and calm.
  • Increases your ability to cope effectively with emotional stress.
  • Helps you psychologically prepare for childbirth and the transition of adding a new baby into the family.
  • Establishes the habit of setting aside time for self-renewal.
