Want A Baby Over 40? Try Yoga For Fertility, Sandy Robertson

  1. 1. Want A Baby Over 40? Try Yoga For Fertility By Sandy Robertson My website: www.getpregnantover40.com Google +AuthorYou dont have to be a yoga guru, to reap the benefits of yoga. Im just a regular person who wanted tohave a baby the natural way over the age of 40. Yes, its possible - contrary to everything you hearabout fertility declining in your late 20s and how you must get to that fertility clinic before its too late.When I decided that having a baby was the most important thing in my life, I revamped my lifestyle,my eating habits, and my exercise routine. I managed to naturally overcome infertility and recurrentmiscarriage and have a normal pregnancy and normal delivery when I was approaching my mid-forties.Even though were a nation of couch potatoes, or perhaps more accurately, "office chair potatoes", I hadthe opposite problem. I worked out too much. I was an exercise fanatic - and the harder and more highimpact the exercise was, the better. When I went in for a few trial treatments of acupuncture, theacupuncturist told me that my body didnt have the "constitution" for heavy exercise. There are some Yoga Poses and Postures That Help The Reproductive System"So what should I do"? I asked. She recommended yoga. After some research, I found that there aresome yoga poses and postures that can directly benefit the reproductive system by opening up thepelvic region and the surrounding structures to increase pelvic circulation. Additionally, yoga can helpwith overall relaxation.Here is a summary of some of the yoga poses which can benefit the reproductive system:1. The Bridge Pose - the bridge stimulates abdominal organs and can relieve menstrual discomfort ifdone regularly. It calms the brain and can help with stress. Start by lying on the floor. Bend your knees,put your fee flat on the floor as close to your sit bones as possible. Bring your buttocks up until youform a bridge and bring your hands together clasped underneath you.2. The Cobblers Pose - this pose also stimulates abdominal organs, ovaries and is thought to be anatural remedy for infertility. Sit on the floor, bend your knees and let them lay out to the side. Bringyour feet together and hold the toes or ankles with your hands.3. The Lotus pose - this pose stimulates the pelvis, spine, abdomen and bladder. It can help ease the
  2. 2. pain of childbirth if done throughout pregnancy. This pose starts by sitting cross legged on the floor.Slowly bring one foot on top of your thigh then the other foot on top of the other thigh. If this ispainful, you may stay seated cross legged. Bring your thumb and middle fingers together and rest onyour knees4. The Reclining Hero pose - this pose probably needs to be done with support (a bolster pillow can beused along the length of your back). The reclining hero pose helps open up and stretch the abdomenand it can ease menstrual pain. This pose begins by kneeling then sitting down between your feet thenslowly reclining down until you are laying on the floor. This is an intermediate pose and you may needadditional support with a second pillow on your back until you become more experienced.In my DVD, "Fertility Bodywork" I demonstrate these yoga poses among others and I also have asegment on fertility pelvic massage, acupressure and reflexology and daily routines which help increasepelvic circulation and oxygenation. All of these fertility enhancing techniques can be done by yourselfin the privacy of your own home without the services of a paid professional.As always, you should talk to your doctor before beginning a new exercise routine and this should notbe used as a substitute for medical diagnosis and treatment.
