2 Min Read


By Dr. Emily Carter, Yoga Instructor

Yoga, an ancient practice originating in India, offers numerous benefits during pregnancy, including improved flexibility, strength, and mental well-being. Specific asanas (postures) have been found to be particularly conducive to a normal delivery.

Asanas for Normal Delivery

  • Butterfly Pose: Improves pelvic flexibility, reducing resistance to the baby’s descent.
  • Cat-Cow Pose: Enhances spine flexibility, alleviating back pain and promoting relaxation.
  • Squats: Strengthens pelvic floor muscles and prepares the body for pushing.
  • Bridge Pose: Strengthens buttocks and hamstrings, supporting the baby’s passage.
  • Child’s Pose: Relaxes the lower back and pelvis, while opening the hips.

These asanas should be practiced regularly under the guidance of a qualified yoga instructor. It is important to note that yoga is not a substitute for medical care and should be used as a complementary practice.

By incorporating these asanas into their prenatal routine, pregnant women can enhance their overall well-being, improve their chances of a normal delivery, and prepare both body and mind for the challenges of childbirth.
