Linda you do need to be aware of liability and as I am teaching in another part of the world, I certainly respect your concerns.

I am however a prenatal instructor and I just wanted to comment on the issue of a pregnant woman lying on her back. I have had women in my prenatal classes who are completely comfortable doing this right up to the end of the 8th month. They all had healthy normal births and neither mom or baby has had any complications since. I do recommend that women lie on their side and I do explain why. I am also aware that we all carry our babies differently and that not every pregnant woman will have vena cava compression.

It's a tough issue because as in all things yoga related, each student needs to learn how to work individually with their own body. Unfortunately courts of law don't account for this.
