Prepare for labor and childbirth with Yoga This book is a micro mini encyclopedia of practices that can be done before, during and after pregnancy - that means a range of practices have been carefully selected to support a healthy pregnancy. The idea is to empower you so that you have the tools to influence your well-being during pregnancy. Although, it is recommended in the book that many of these practices be done under the guidance of a yoga expert, for the most part, it has been developed as a self-help guide book. Blissful Mom, Blissful Baby has been intended to serve many purposes. If you are looking for a way to feel energetic and lively during pregnancy, these practices will do it for you. If morning sickness and the other aches and pains of pregnancy are getting the better of you, these practices will certainly alleviate much (if not all) of your problems. On the other hand, if you want to expand your awareness and make pregnancy a time of introspection, then some of the more meditative practices presented in this book can help you do just that. Please read the instructions for every asana carefully, before attempting them and once you are familiar and comfortable with the instructions, you may use the pictures as a general guideline to assist you in your practice. Please note that the pictures in this book are meant to be only used as a general guideline, as different people can do the same asana at different levels and they will look different in a picture. Please do not attempt to do any of the asana just by looking at the pictures. If you have any doubts or you are unclear regarding the position of any asana, please contact a qualified yoga teacher or the author at firstname.lastname@example.org.
