Tweet of the Day: Yoga Is Safe and Beneficial For Pregnant Women

A study in the American Journal of Perinatology found that women who performed yoga during pregnancy saw lower rates of small gestational age and prenatal disorders, and experienced less pain and stress during pregnancy. The review also showed that yoga is safe for women with depression or high risk of depression, and women with lumbopelvic pain. Finally, the authors concluded that yoga was more effective than walking or other usual prenatal exercises. Visit the Health Benefits of Exercise Archives to read more about the study.
