How did you put your prenatal yoga techniques to use during labor?

Question by Coolmint: How did you put your prenatal yoga techniques to use during labor?
I’m currently 19 weeks and attending prenatal yoga – I’m just finding it difficult to think about what I’m learning and the true context of labor!

To help me understand what I might be taking from the class that will during labor, please share how you put the techniques (breathing, position, relaxation etc) to use during labor.

Thank you!

I practiced prenatal yoga and attended the bradley method class. I had a waterbirth at home so yoga played a huge part in opening my hips and strenthening my legs, arms, and most importantly taught me the importance of breathing properly and deeply. Your baby loves the movements too- my baby would always sit on my siatic nerve which was very painful at times but yoga moves helped relieve the pain.

Believe me you will be grateful that you knew some of these yoga skills when you going thru labor pains.
