Heard a lot of terrifying things about labour? Breathe and stop panicking! Staying fit in the initial days of your pregnancy and following a proper fitness regime will make it easier for you. There are few do's and don'ts for yoga during pregnancy that you need to keep in mind. Few yoga asanas, too, will help you stay fit, regulate your breathing and help you in the final trimester. Baddha Konasana, or the bound angle pose, is a very simple yoga asana that will particularly help you during the delivery process as it opens up the hips and strengthens the thighs. Baddha Konasana also helps you relax and relieves mild depression or anxiety. Here are 7 prenatal yoga poses to ease your pregnancy.

In this video Pragya Bhatt, senior yoga coach HealthifyMe, demonstrates how to perform the Baddha Konasana. While it is very beneficial for pregnant women, you can perform this yoga asana even when you are not pregnant. There is no specific time to do this asana, you can do it any time of the day. Practicing this yoga pose, even in the final trimester, eases childbirth as it stretches out your knees, groins and thighs. Don't forget to breathe properly and concentrate on your breathing while you are in this pose. You will have to stay in the pose for at least 5 minutes or till you want to get out of it. Here are 8 common mistakes that every pregnant woman makes.
