This kneeling sequence is especially helpful for encouraging your baby into the ideal position for delivery – “optimal foetal position”. It is recommended that you spend 15 minutes a day on hands and knees to help the baby roll into a position with its head down and its spine lying against your belly. That sounds like a long time but it will fly by if you practise this yoga sequence!
Caution: The exercises explained here are suitable for most women experiencing a low-risk pregnancy. If in any doubt, please consult your midwife.
