Exclusive content to guide mothers on mind & body wellness during pregnancy
CHENNAI, March 9, 2020: LifeCell International, India’s premier stem cell bank and mother & child diagnostics company today announced the launch of its signature film on ‘Prenatal Yoga’ in partnership with Ms. Sameera Reddy on the occasion of International Women’s Week.
Prenatal Yoga is a wellness exercise for expectant mothers that encourages stretching, relaxation and focused breathing. It helps to reduce stress and anxiety and improve sleep, apart from providing strength, flexibility and endurance of muscles needed for childbirth. Yoga as a regular exercise has been available and accessible to everyone and being practiced by many to stay healthy and fit. However Prenatal Yoga was seldom available and hence the benefits of Yoga wasn’t accessible for expectant mothers.
LifeCell created this film in its endeavour to help expectant mothers nurture their pregnancy and approach birthing with confidence. The film will take them through various postures and exercises necessary to stay fit and add to her confidence.
The Prenatal Yoga Film: During pregnancy the body undergoes various changes and the woman has to cope up with these changes. The film has been created to emphasize Yoga exercises and postures during pregnancy and features Ms. Sameera Reddy, who herself has performed the exercises during her final stages of pregnancy. The film focuses on deep relaxation and rejuvenation techniques and prepares the woman to deal with her body and mind and connect with the baby. In addition, the film also aims in overcoming the inactivity, lethargy and mood swings that are usually habitually associated with pregnancy. The film has been specially structured for all 3 trimesters, to meet the requirement of every expectant mother and designed as ‘do it yourself’ under expert guidance from Yoga expert ‘Ms Kadambari Ravi‘.
