Meditation During Pregnancy

Meditation is an integral part of yoga. It aims to help you achieve a harmonious balance between your body and mind.

Meditation relaxes your mind and eliminates feelings of restlessness. Meditation improves your concentration and creates an awareness about the power of your body.

Meditation can be safely practiced in all stages of pregnancy, even the last trimester when the growing body may hinder you from completing asanas or other exercises.

While you can practice meditation throughout your pregnancy, it is best to follow a prenatal yoga class to choose the postures and breathing techniques most suited to relax your growing body without straining your back or abdominal muscles. The type of meditation you prefer may depend on your personal beliefs and the time available.

Benefits of meditation

Meditation:
  • helps you deal with mood swings
  • increases your sense of self-awareness
  • helps you focus thereby improving concentration
  • calms you down and relaxes you as well
  • helps you connect with your inner self
  • brings you closer to your baby and helps you bond with your little one.
Tips on how to meditate effectively
1. Choose a well ventilated area in your house. You can even choose to meditate outdoors in a park.
2. Ensure that the place is calm and quiet where you will not be disturbed.
3. Follow a set routine – you may start with a few minutes at a preset time and gradually increase its duration.
4. Avoid meditating after a heavy meal or when you are tired.
5. Follow up your meditation with a session of Yog nidra to feel rejuvenated

Initially your mind may wander while you focus within, but you will be able to gradually focus with practice and a good dose of patience.
