10 Yoga Poses to Reduce Pregnancy Pains
Today's guest post is from Elena from LittleBloomingLotus. She shares a super easy 15 minute yoga routine that is perfect for any stage of pregnancy.
Let’s face it – though pregnancy is full of beautiful moments like hearing your precious little one’s heartbeat for the first time, it can also be full of discomfort.
During the first and second trimesters, you might have been able to continue a lot of the activities from your pre-pregnancy life that made you feel good—such as running, hiking, or biking.
During the third trimester is where the physical limitations start to come into play and you may be finding you’re no longer able to do the things you once did as comfortably or as safely. With baby on board, safety is our number one priority. However, these unfamiliar restrictions can take a toll on your mood if you’re not able to move your body like you used to.
Yoga is a wonderful way for expectant mamas to move their bodies in a safe way that not only aids in relieving pregnancy aches and pains, but also helps to prepare for the labor and birth experience. If you don’t already practice yoga, it’s something you can start at the very beginning of your pregnancy and carry all the way up to the birth of your baby…and beyond.
Follow this 15-minute sequence to move your body, get in-tune with your breath, and feel connected to your baby throughout your entire pregnancy.
