Did you find yoga helped you labour?
Anything else IYO made things easier?

An exercise ball was my life saver. I bounced on that for a few weeks before I went into labor and once I was in labor that's where I wanted to stay. You can keep everything open while still being comfortable and focusing on getting into a swaying rythm. I didn't find yoga helped but that's just me.

I used hypnosis for childbirth which worked really well for me. My midwife said she used yoga techniques with all three of her births and it worked well for her.

Birth ball for me too. When I was in labor that's really where I wanted to be.

Yoga made me feel good during pregnancy, and after. Some of the breathing techniques are helpful along with an awareness of your body and your muscles. I also appreciate the mental calm that yoga can bring. I wouldn't rely JUST on yoga... but I feel it can definitely contribute to an easier birth experience.

I made sure to keep active, and I did squats almost everyday...I know they say not to, but I did, and it helped keep me strong and able to move and such, even when I was a beached whale at 9months pregnant. I honestly think it helped get the ball rolling in the end, and helped dilate me before the big day so things went much quicker when I was actually in active labor.
