Planning a baby is one of the most important decisions of your life, and probably the best one. You get busy preparing the baby's room, baby-proofing the house and much more for the baby. What you really need to think about first and foremost is preparing your body for the pregnancy. Most of the horrifying things you hear about labour and pregnancy is true. There are going to be mood swings, morning sickness, back aches and a lot of other aches that you get during pregnancy. You will have to battle all of this to have a healthy baby. Try this yoga pose to help ease childbirth.

In this video, Roshini Gilbert, director of fitness and services at HealthifyMe and Pragya Bhatt, a senior yoga coach at HealthifyMe, tell you what you should and shouldn't do to have a healthy pregnancy. Your body will go through an awful lot during and after pregnancy. If you don't workout already, you must start right away. Get into a habit of exercising every day, combine your exercises with yoga and opt for a healthy diet. You will find it easier to fight all the aches and other problems during pregnancy if you follow a healthy lifestyle.

It is very important that you choose the right gynaecologist and consult him on what exercises or movements you should avoid and how much you should exercise. This will help you plan your exercise routine. This is how padmasana helps you deal with stress during pregnancy.
