What can help depression during pregnancy? 21 Aug 2020
Post natal depression is very well known, what is talked about less often is depression during pregnancy.
A team of scientists in the Uk and Singapore conducted a systematic review of six clinical studies, involving 450 pregnant women that examined the effects in yoga on depression during pregnancy.
All six studies showed reductions in depression scores, indicating that yoga is a promosing non-medicine approach for improving psychological health of pregnant women.
Participants recruited for the trails reported mild depressive states and therefore larger studies are required to examine the impact of yoga on pregnant women with severe prenatal depression.
