Performing Yoga poses with awareness creates a state of peace. When a pregnant woman feels inner clarity, her sense of empowerment increases. When she feels calm, any anxiety concerning the birth process decreases. Her mind becomes involved with the body movements of herself and the baby. This focus allows the pregnant woman to tune out distracting forces around her during labour and to respond appropriately to the contractions.
As a woman becomes more aware of her body through practicing yoga, she may be confronted with her physical strengths and weaknesses. This is actually invaluable training, for labour is a very physical process. Knowing the areas of tightness or weakness and working on those areas, will help a woman prepare her body for birth.
Whilst this approach offers no guarantee for an easier or quicker birth, the increase in body awareness and enhanced ability to breathe and relax will help any woman adjust to the physical demands of labour, birth and motherhood.
