Practicing yoga during pregnancy is extremely beneficial to the baby as well as the expecting mother. Yoga breathing is characterized by controlled deep breathing or pranayama.
It helps nourish the inhaled oxygen and eliminate toxins when exhaling carbon dioxide.
Practicing deep breathing during pregnancy has several benefits. A few of the benefits include:
While practicing deep breathing yoga, maintain calm and steady breathing throughout. Avoid quick and forceful breathing as it can lead to feeling dizzy or fainting. In case of any health conditions like; asthma, cardiac disorder, or lung disorder, consult your doctor before practicing yoga breathing.
Even though pranayama sounds simple, do not practice it without consulting your doctor.
