Hello! Our names are Karla R. and Ashwara P. and we are called the Brainy Bunch, because of knowledge, creativity, and curiosity. We have chosen the path of prenatal yoga because we want to help the mothers that brought us into this world and encourage them to stay mentally and physically healthy while they are nurturing the beautiful new life inside of them. We feel that it is very important for everyone to take a minute to be mindful, even more so when pregnant. With that in mind, we are happy to partner with “Austin Prenatal Yoga” for our 10th grade Cornerstone project.
“Austin Prenatal Yoga” is a facility that helps soon to be mothers strengthen their body, relax, relieve tension, and so much more! Their ultimate goal is to build a bond between the mother and their child even before the baby is born. I mean, what mother doesn’t want that? According to The Baby Center, Mothers learn so much and at the same time meet other mothers. This can help new mothers learn skills, techniques, poses etc, from other mothers that can help them in the near future. If you are interested in learning more about “Austin Prenatal Yoga” and what they do, you can go to their website, http://www.austinprenatalyoga.com/.
Pregnant mothers do yoga to relieve stress and tension in their body. Prenatal yoga can also make it less difficult for childbirth, which can be very helpful! We understand that when a mother is pregnant, their center of gravity changes making it difficult for them to perform many of the stretches and activities that yoga contains. We are hoping that the outcome of our project will help these women overcome the challenges, by making efficient modifications to increase their strength and endurance of muscles for childbirth. Childbirth is already a pain, so why not ease it.
Every person on this earth has come from a woman, so put yourself in their shoes! According to The Fit Pregnancy, Pregnant women have explained the tension and stress all over their body from the long nine months, and we don’t blame them! Carrying a baby can be overwhelming, and that’s why Prenatal yoga is here to help from relaxation to flexibility. Now, imagine carrying a watermelon everywhere you go for nine months. Sleeping, running errands, and everyday activities would become increasingly difficult. In reality, the watermelon you were imagining carrying around for nine months, was a human being a mother would be carrying. Can you feel the pain in your feet and tension in your back? That is what pregnant women experience.
We are very excited to apply these traits and more for a beneficial outcome for Prenatal Yoga. With the use of our biomedical skills, we will try our best to help mothers cope with the fear that comes with pregnancy, along with love and happiness. Remember, the bond between a mother and her child is an unbreakable connection.
As Theador Reik once said, “The relationship of mother and child remains indelible and indescribable…the strongest bond on earth.
I really like how you mention that prenatal yoga is to add in strength to the mother and how it reduces stress as well how it was very enthusiastic, kept me wanting to read more. A question I have is does prenatal yoga reduce the pain during childbirth?
I like how you used comparisons and examples for those who don’t know much about being pregnant. I really enjoyed reading about how prenatal yoga helps the expecting mothers not only in relaxing but also how it helps them at birth. I would really want to know how mothers feel after birth and if prenatal yoga had a difference in the pregnancy of mother who tried it and mothers who didn’t?
I really enjoyed reading this post, I liked how it explained the problems mothers can face when expecting their baby and how yoga can alleviate any of those problems. Doing yoga really does make a difference for both the mother and the child. A question I have is, If a mother does not do prenatal yoga how does that affect the baby? Does it make it more painful for the mother?-Xochitl D.
Hello Brainy bunch,
You both did an amazing job on your blog post. I really liked your team name and also how you compared a mother bring pregnant to carrying around a watermelon! The picture of the benefits of Prenatal Yoga was very nice and informational. I also enjoyed the quotes about a mothers relationship with their child. I was wondering do you have any studies about how prenatal yoga affects the mothers overall health, pain, etc.?
