Prana…Significance of “Breath” in Pregnancy

Pregnant women breathe for two. The mother-to-be provides oxygen and nutrients to the growing baby. The mother undergoes many changes in the respiratory process during pregnancy. To deal with these changes, an effective way to manage vitality is changing the rhythm, depth and pace of breath. The foetus recognizes the mothers relaxed breathing patterns, the rhythm and the sound of the mothers breath, and this memory stays with them even after they are born, making it a bonding moment for the mother and child. 

Join Dr Latha Venkataram and Dr Prasanna Rao on 18th April, 2022 at 3.00 PM IST where they take us through the significance of breathing for pregnancy and foetal development, from the Ayurvedic and modern medicine perspective.
