While getting pregnant is simple for many women, for others it is challenging and difficult. To make things worse, the longer it takes, the more stressful it can become, and since stress levels can affect the ability to conceive, finding ways to reduce stress is important. Fortunately, there are now natural ways to increase the odds of conceiving, and this includes finding the perfect way to exercise when trying to get pregnant.

Yoga is one of those exercises, so if you’re interested in trying fertility yoga so you can finally get pregnant, below are some good ones to consider.

 Fertility Boosting | 10 Yoga Poses for Successful Conception

Cat Stretch

The cat stretch actually helps reduce menstrual cramps, so it’s a great pose to learn for many reasons. To start, get down on all fours and make sure your knees are below your hips. Next, inhale then round your back and make sure your navel is drawn inward. Bend your head and place your chin on your chest, then slowly move back to the starting position while exhaling.

 

Cobra

When it comes to easy and amazing yoga poses that boost fertility, this one can be done by almost anyone. You start by lying on your mat facing down, making sure your feet are hip-width apart and your hands are by your side. Place your hands on the mat to push yourself up slowly until your shoulders and gaze are facing upwards, then hold the position for a few seconds.

 

Warrior 2

This is another common yet easy-to-do yoga pose that you should be able to do even if you’re a beginner. Stand up straight with your heels slightly apart, then exhale and place one foot to the side of the other one, stretching it out as much as you’re comfortable doing. Then spread your arms out to your side and change the position of the foot you moved so it’s perpendicular to the foot you didn’t move.

Bend the leg of the moved foot until it’s parallel to the floor but make sure that foot is flat on the ground. Keep this position for a few seconds, then inhale as you get into the original position.

 

Bridge

Looking for yoga postures for conceiving doesn’t have to be a challenge, and this is another simple one for you to choose. Start by lying flat on your back with your knees bent and your arms lying by your side. Next, bend your hips upward and move the feet slightly apart. Your body should look like a diagonal line (a “bridge”). Stay this way for 12 to 15 breaths.

 

Legs up the Wall

This exercise is not only simple but also super relaxing. Lie on your back and place the buttocks and hips against the wall and your legs straight and placed against the wall. Relax your arms to your sides and stay this way for 10 to 15 breaths before stopping. While you’re doing this one, your body should be at a 90-degree angle.

 

Reclining Bound Angle

Relax on your back and if necessary, place a pillow under your neck for extra comfort. Spread your arms by your side with your palms facing up, and place your legs apart with your feet touching so they are open and look like a butterfly. Your feet will be together and your legs are flat against the floor. Remain there for 10 to 15 breaths before relaxing. This fertility exercise works in part because it relaxes the groin and inner thigh muscles.

 

Goddess

This one is both relaxing and fun. You start by standing tall, then you spread the feet apart and bend your legs so you’re actually squatting. Place the arms out, bent at the elbow, with your fingertips facing the ceiling. If you need to, start by squatting only as long as you’re comfortable with and squatting further down as your muscles start to relax more and you get used to the pose.

 

Downward-Facing Dog

Start on all fours with your arms and legs as close together as possible. With your back straight, spread your arms forward on the mat with your head in between them, and do this until your body looks like a perfect upside-down “V.” Make sure that your heels are flat on the floor, and you can bend the knees slightly if you’re too uncomfortable.

 

Relaxation

This is the ultimate exercise for conceiving a pregnancy because it is a basic relaxation pose. Lie flat on your back with your legs and feet straight out on the mat and your arms relaxed by your side, palms facing up. Lie there completely still for five minutes, breathing slowly in and out so you’re completely relaxed the entire time.

 

Seated Forward Fold

Sit on the mat facing forward, with your legs together and spread out in front of you. Bend the feet upward, then lean over slightly and gently place your arms on the mat on the side of your legs, with your palms down. Stretch gently as much as you can for one to two minutes. Never bounce as you stretch because it can pull or strain a muscle. Just relax and stretch as much as you can.

 

Conclusion

The bottom line is this: several yoga postures for conceiving can be successful because they relax and open up several parts of your reproductive system. They help you relax, can stimulate blood flow, and increase circulation to areas such as the heart, abdomen, and the pelvic area. For many women, these yoga poses have helped tremendously.
