Marjariasana or the Cat Pose

Some women experience stiffness and aches in their bodies during pregnancy. The Cat pose works well for relaxing the body and the mind.


Steps:

1. First up, come on to your knees with your palms on the ground

3. Now, exhale and put your face back down

4. Try to move your spine outwards and inwards along with the breath movement

Trikonasana or the Triangle Pose

Trikonasana has been known to strengthen the knees and joints. It also stretches the spine, legs, and neck. Overall, this pose helps in maintaining the body's flexibility during pregnancy. You will also feel lighter since this pose aids digestion and calms the mind.

Baddha Konasana or Butterfly Pose

This is another Pregnancy Yoga pose that enhances your flexibility, specifically in the groin area. It also aids in opening up the hips. Practicing this pose in the last trimester can also be helpful in the delivery process.

Butterfly pose is suited for people with thigh pain and knee ache during pregnancy. This asana promotes blood circulation and thus reduces stress and helps indigestion.

Babies are the most delicate, sensitive and tender beings who benefit greatly from newborn's body massages in their early life as it helps them in building strong bones and good blood circulation.
