Prenatal Yoga- Posture to Prepare You for Labor

Posted Jun 20 2008 5:02pm

In your 3rd trimester it will benefit you to do yoga postures that will open up your pelvis in preparation for an easier labor.  A good posture to do is what I call the “modified squat” (see below). 

Modified Squat

*Place your feet approximately 3 1/2 feet apart.

*Place your hands on the floor shoulder width apart and slightly in front of your feet with your legs as straight as possible

*Inhale bend your knees to a deep squat and look up

*Exhale extend your legs as straight as possible

*Repeat 8-10 breathes

You can find this exercise on myprenatal yogadvd for the 3rd trimester.  Click here to view:
