Why is yoga good for postpartum?

Postpartum yoga offers the most benefits during the first three months after childbirth, which include:

Decrease the risk of postpartum depression

Help balance your energy

Lower blood pressure

Reduce stress and anxiety

After you have a baby, you may be eager to resume your yoga practice and reconnect with your body. The most important thing to remember is that your postpartum body may be very different than the body you had before getting pregnant.

You have to work with the body you have now, not the one you had nine months ago. This is not to say that you'll never get back to the level of practice you had before. It's just a reminder that it takes time and patience.
