WHY YOU SHOULD DO BREATHING EXERCISES DURING PREGNANCY?

Don’t let the pressures of pregnancy overwhelm you. It is important to relax and take care of yourself so that your body and mind feel healthy and strong. An effective method to relieve anxiety and feel better is through relaxation breathing, which can even help you fall into a more restful sleep at night.

Benefits of Breathing Exercises During Pregnancy:

Why do we need to breathe right during pregnancy? Let’s find out!

  •   As your baby grows, your body requires more oxygen to function at its optimum. Your baby too needs adequate oxygen to grow properly. Shallow breathing is not sufficient to provide the body with ample oxygen. But with these breathing exercises, your body will get the oxygen it needs.
  •  Anxiety and stress are a part of the whole pregnancy experience. With breathing exercises, you can stay calm and de-stress.
  •  As you deep breathe, you provide your body with more oxygen. This in turn provides relief from achy joints and muscles.
  •  The one thing most pregnant women dread is labor. But if you practice breathing exercises regularly, labor won’t be such a huge battle. It will allow you to manage your contractions and labor pain better.
  •  Most importantly, these exercises will help you stay ‘present’ during your pregnancy and labor. They will allow you to enjoy the miracle that’s childbirth.

Breathing technique tips

Here are some breathing technique tips to help you relax. Relaxation breathing can be performed all throughout your pregnancy and it is easy to do!

  • Consciously control your breathing. Slowly inhale and exhale, taking deep breaths
  • While slowly inhaling, feel your ribcage expanding and allow your lungs to fill completely
  • While slowly exhaling, feel your navel area sinking and empty your lungs completely while preparing for the next breath
  • Inhale and exhale slowly and rhythmically
  • Do not take deep breaths very quickly because you could hyperventilate
  • Repeat about four times, and perform the exercise at least twice a day or as needed
  • Relaxation breathing in the fresh air is ideal but feel free to do it wherever you feel most comfortable

Attending yoga classes can also be very helpful for learning breathing techniques, as many yoga instructors have experience teaching pregnant women (or better yet, have been pregnant themselves!). Staying relaxed is a great way to encourage a healthy pregnancy.
