Posture is a state of holding the body still in a specific position, such as standing and sitting.
Yoga, the ancient practical 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 the concerns of the adverse effect of yoga posture in pregnant women, researchers at the Jersey Shore University Medical Center filed the study of 25 healthy pregnant women with 10 assigned to regular yoga practice, 8 to familiar with yoga, and 7 with no yoga experience, matching age, race, body mass index, gestational age, and parity in each group, researchers found that
1. There was no change in maternal heart rate, temperature, pulse oximetry(the proportion of oxygenated hemoglobin in the blood in a pulsating vessel), or fetal heart rate
2. The fetal heart rate across all 26 postures was normal.
3. There were no falls or injuries during the total cumulative 650 poses
Furthermore, after taking into account of other confounders researchers insisted that yoga posture also do not express a decreased fetal movement, contractions, leakage of fluid, or vaginal bleeding in the 24-hour follow-up.
Yoga postures have been found to ease back pain, indigestion, stress, and other pregnancy-related issues and to help you get smoothly through the next nine months.
However, some researchers suggested that some yoga postures must be avoided during pregnancy for the safety of mother and baby, such as inversions and prone postures which may have potential in twisting your torso and close in on your belly, pressuring the belly,.....
Pregnant women should discuss with their doctors before taking any class of yoga.
In support of yoga posture efficacy in reduced certain complications during pregnancy, Dr. Martins RF the lead author and colleagues at the UNICAMP School of Medicine, conducted a randomized controlled trial with 60 pregnant women (age range, 14-40 years) with report of lumbopelvic pain at 12 to 32 weeks of gestation from June 2009 to June 2011 assigned to the yoga group, practicing exercises guided by this method, and the postural orientation group, performing standardized posture orientation according to instructions provided in a pamphlet, suggested that
1. Yoga group expressed a significant improvement of median pain score in compared to postural orientation group.
2. Both groups showed a decreased response in relation to posterior pelvic pain provocation tests and a gradual reduction in pain intensity during 10 yoga sessions.
After taking into account of other co-founders, researchers postulated that although yoga group displayed a high score in reduced pain as indicated by the pain provocation tests, standardized posture orientation may also be considered as another form of exercise in improved pregnancy outcome.
Indeed, according to Bec Conant, prenatal yoga instructor at Om Births and birth doula in Boston, (Yoga helps) women to develop strength, flexibility, and confidence throughout their pregnancy and post-partum.
More interestingly, in the study of 335 women of 18 and 20 weeks of pregnancy attending the antenatal clinic at Gunasheela Surgical and Maternity Hospital in Bangalore, India, assigned to either (n=169)yoga postures and breathing, and meditation group and (n=166) or control group, researchers found that yoga postures and breathing, and meditation group showed a higher birth weight and gestational age at delivery as well as lowering pregnancy complications such as isolated intrauterine growth retardation (IUGR) (p < 0.003) and pregnancy-induced hypertension (PIH) with associated IUGR (p < 0.025) in compared to control.
More importantly, there was no report of significant adverse effects noted in the yoga group.
