Namaskar Shanthi,

You are very sweet and you did the right thing by posting here. Yours are heart felt words and thank you for sharing your story with us. We need a thread with real life experiences and you can get some information in return.One really important point: Keep practicing mild, calming, and deep pranayam (please no force).

Since you are now in your second trimester please do not perform any pranayam that involves breath retention. Also, avoid altering of the flow of air (Kapalabhati or Bhastrika) as these pranayams will change the delivery of oxygen to the fetus. Please discuss this with your teacher. Practice the mantras your teacher gives you, as they instill positive energy and positive thoughts in your baby and in you. Be confident, because your baby must feel it. Say prayers and think positive. Even if you ask God for help. Practice the relaxation CD and use sound manifestation.

There is music at the site and also a short video on prenatal yoga. Some of the resources are free, so it's worth looking around. Keep in contact with us and let us know how you progress. We are all yoginis on these prenatal threads and some of us are Mums too.

Your family will be in our prayers, so please remain very positive. We will pray for your healthy baby.

Lastly, get a monitor for your baby. Please shop around to get one of good quality. I don't know much about this model, but wanted you to realise that you may be able to sleep easier with a monitor in your baby's room.

Om Shanti,
