There are factors, such as eating habits and overall well-being which hampers the natural delivery process. Yoga not just helps in the delivery of the baby naturally but also helps maintain the physical and mental well-being of the woman,” says Kedar Nath.

“Although it became a trend to do yoga for physical fitness it has meditative and spiritual value also. It brings contentment and gives peace to your mind. Yoga helps to fight with all the problems which a woman faces during pregnancy,” he adds. “You need more oxygen during pregnancy, and your body adapts to meet this need in several ways. An increase in hormones, particularly progesterone, directly affects your lungs and stimulates the respiratory center in your brain. And while the number of breaths you take per minute actually changes very little during pregnancy, the amount of air you inhale and exhale with each breath increases significantly.”
