The ancient yogic texts describe human birth as a great gift—something that should be honoured and welcomed with due respect and humility. Ideally, the experience of birthing will not harm either the mother or the child in accordance with the yogic teaching of ahimsa or non-violence. Ahimsa is the foundation of all yoga philosophy and the first of Patanjali’s eight limbs.
Yoga is proven to be a safe and effective exercise during pregnancy. Not only does it have a multifaceted effect on the pregnant mother’s body, including developing strength, maintaining fitness and reducing symptoms of pregnancy such as muscle aches, swelling, sciatica, cramps, and fatigue but it also has a demonstrated effect on her mind and her baby.
