Yoga intervention may have a profound effect in reduced risk of giving birth of intrauterine growth retardation (IUGR) infant, particularly in high-risk women, the study by the Yoga Anusandhana Samsthana (sVYASA) postulated.
Intrauterine growth restriction(IUGR) is a condition characterized by smaller unborn baby due to not growing at a normal rate inside the womb.
Yoga, the practical ancient technique for harmonized external and internal body well beings, through breath control, meditation, bodily movement, and gesture..... has been best known for people in the Western world and some parts in Asia due to health benefits reported by various respectable institutes' research and supported by health advocates.
In a prospective, matched, observational study of a total of 121 women attending antenatal clinic at Gunasheela Surgical and Maternity Hospital (GSMH) in Bangalore, India, enrolled between 18-20 weeks of pregnancy with women assigned to the yoga group (including physical postures, breathing and meditation were practiced by the yoga group, one hour daily, from the date of entry into the study until delivery period) and 53 women to the control group (walked half an hour twice a day during the study), researchers found that yoga group scores a significant higher in giving birth to a baby of normal birth-weight, as well as decreasing complications of pregnancy in compared to control group.
Indeed, growth of the baby depends upon the diet of pregnant women, expecting mom’s physical health as well as providing nutrients to the baby needed.
Yoga breathing and relaxation reduced daily and pregnancy stress through calming the central nervous system by connecting the mind and body, bringing back the present moment while letting go of them or deal them in the positive way.
Furthermore, the relaxation of psychological aspect also decreased the hormone expression during pregnancy in induced psychological symptoms to the expect mother, thus ameliorating mood swings caused by stress, fatigue and attenuating negative influence to the natural response of the body to increase circulation of blood to carry oxygen and nutrients to the womb for the baby to grow naturally.
Additionally, in the review literature published on the PubMed database from January 1970 to January 2011 to evaluate the peripartum outcomes of yoga during pregnancy, including the postpartum period and lactation, five prospective observational studies (n = 575) and three randomized clinical trials (RCTs; n = 298), met the criteria and guidelines were selected in the analysis, after taking into account of other co-founders, researchers found that yoga intervention significantly lowered pain and discomfort (p < 0.05) and perceived stress (p = 0.001) and improved quality of life in physical domains.
Many pregnant women experience lower back pain as well as neck and muscle tension as the result of the body trying to cope with the growth of the fetus and expansion of the uterus. Yoga mind-body practices that cultivated general health, diminished distress, increased self-awareness, and mind relaxation also calms the nervous tension and bring back the self-consciousness of the motherhood, thus reducing pain caused psychological stress and dealing the physical pain in active and positive ways.
Additional differentiation also found that yoga breathing exercises to relax the body and help free the mind of worries and distractions, thus promoting blood to circulate in the uterus and creating a space for the baby to grow, improving self-consciousness of being motherhood in the reduction of psychological and physical discomfort.
Some researchers also suggested that maternal yoga participation not only relieves physical pain such as upper and back pain but also alleviates anxiety around labor and builds strength in the legs to prepare for the date of labor.
More profoundly, in the total of 335 women attending the antenatal clinic at Gunasheela Surgical and Maternity Hospital in Bangalore, India, enrolled between 18 and 20 weeks of pregnancy in a prospective, matched, observational study with 169 women in the yoga group and 166 women in the control group, researchers found that yoga group expressed improvement of all aspects in compared to control, including higher number of babies with normal birth weight > or = 2500 grams, reduced significant cases of preterm labor and complications of isolated intrauterine growth retardation (IUGR) (p < 0.003) and pregnancy-induced hypertension (PIH) with associated IUGR (p < 0.025) in compared to control.
The findings suggested that yoga therapy is safe and may be used as an integrated approach during pregnancy to decreases IUGR either in isolation or associated with PIH, with no increased risk of complications.
