Mother & Baby - - BUMP TO BIRTH -

Preeti Sak­ta­vat rem­i­nisces, ‘I was in Mum­bai when I was preg­nant with my first baby. It was quite fun apart from morn­ing nau­seous that I had. I worked with DHL coun­try of­fice at the time where both my em­ployer and col­leagues were very sup­port­ive. I was al­lowed to work flex­i­ble hours as well. I used to take care of my diet and had en­rolled for pre­na­tal yoga class which helped me to deal with the stress. I never stopped the yoga and to­day am a pro­fes­sional trainer. Yoga helps a lot in deal­ing with al­most all kind of stress dur­ing preg­nancy but it’s al­ways ad­vis­able to do it only un­der guid­ance. Some of the asanas I rec­om­mend to preg­nant ladies are: 1) But­ter­fly stretch 2) Cat-Cow Co­bra (in the first trimester only if com­fort­able) 3) Seated for­ward bend (with mod­i­fi­ca­tions) 4) Side-an­gle pose 5) Stand­ing for­ward bend (with a chair for mod­i­fi­ca­tion) 6) Tri­an­gle pose (with a chair for mod­i­fi­ca­tion)
