Women who practice yoga during pregnancy may have a lower risk of preterm labor, according to research in Bangalore, India.

This preliminary study of 335 women compared expectant moms who did yoga for an hour per day with a similar group who walked 30 minutes twice per day.

The yoga moms also had a lower risk of high blood pressure, and their babies, on average, had a healthier birth weight. Researchers speculate that yoga’s benefits could come from increased blood flow to the placenta and lower levels of maternal stress hormones. – Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine.
