It would seem that the gender contoversy has created more posts on this prenatal yoga thread than the rest. Usually these prenatal threads have minimal traffic and fewer posts. Here are some answers to Rose's question. Women should attend prenatal classes for the following reasons.

Reduces lower back pain and sciatica

Improve your physical comfort

Learn to use the tools of meditation

Empower yourself

Reduces swelling and inflammation around your joints

Aids in digestion

Identify when you're holding to tension in your body

Helps prepare you physically for giving birth

Increases overall strength

Improves flexibility

Learn to use visual imagery

Use the muscles of your pelvic floor effectively

Reduces aches and fatigue

Improves emotional well being

If that dsn't seem like a good reason. Think about this - safety isn't a bad thing. Each trimester is unique in contraindications, modifications, and so on. You really need a trained prenatal yoga teacher.
