Dr. Latha Venkatram, yoga research foundation of Vyasa, Bangalore, Inde :
“Pregnancy is increasingly perceived as a disease while it is normal for a woman. Only 10% of pregnancies are at risk. Yoga (during pregnancy) will provide a gentle stretching, it diminishes the fear related to childbirth and it calms the mind,it is very important. It helps relieve stress and keep a pscychological pregnancy. Finally, I found that pregnant women who practice yoga have a stress level much lower, common problems associated with pregnancy such as backaches, heavy legs, vomiting, cramps etc. are reduced. The work of childbirth is going better. “

During pregnancy, the respiratory capacity is decreased by increasing the size of the uterus and growing baby. In Sanskrit, “pranayama” is defined as the control of breathing.
