Yoga is a union between the breath, body, mind and higher consciousness. Yoga is believed to support women to be mobile and in control of their positioning during labour and birth. Yoga may be seen as a strategy to equip women to physically manage the demands of labour ad birth. Yoga may also be an effective strategy for pain management during pregnancy and labour. Providing women with increased choice and alternatives to mainstream services may improve their satisfaction with the service and reduce anxiety and birth trauma.
