Are there any prenatal yoga DVDs you recommend? I have rented a few from netflix but none of them did anything for me. I am very familiar with Power Vinyasa Yoga but it has been a couple of years since I practiced regularly. thanks!

Thanks for highlighting the role of transversus in pregnancy. A new book 'My Pelvic Flaw' contains the correct evidenced based information for women to transform their knowledge of their pelvic floor.Learn the correct activation of pelvic floor and transversus in detail. It contains chapters on the Pregnant pelvic floor, birth , post baby pelvic floor and return to exercise post baby. Visit www.mypelvicfloor.com.au

I like Prenatal Yoga with Colette Crawford. I think a gentle form of yoga is best when pregnant, especially if you don't have a regular practice. But nothing beats a weekly class.


Great site! Mary Barnes, the teacher of my prenatal yoga teacher training program (http://yogafortwo.com/) emphasized working with your transversus in pregnancy. I learned a lot and put her knowledge to work when I gave birth to my second child. Learning to completely relax my pelvic floor helped tremendously with pushing. I will have to look for your book to learn more!

I have been learning Yoga now for about 2 months so I know I have a long way to go. As I am in my 50s I needed something to keep my body supple. I am really pleased with Yoga as it is a natural and gentle way to exercise. I have found a lot of inspiration from this site. Many thanks.

Building up these muscle tissue will help you push and can help with returning problems and posture as well. A lot of returning problems in pregnancy arises from the fact that your ab muscle tissue are not taking their fair proportion of the load when it comes to keeping your body erect.
