The effects of yoga during pregnancy on the apgar
Only a small amount of research on yoga during pregnancy has been done. Yoga is a cost effective tool that expectant mothers can utilize to improve their unborn child's health. There is strong evidence that yoga is useful in having healthier babies. The absence of research on yoga during pregnancy is the impetus for the present study. The independent variable in. the proposed study is yoga participation (yes or no). It was hypothesized that women who participated in Prenatal Yoga would deliver babies with higher APGAR scores. Participants consisted of 18 mothers. The findings did not support the hypothesis, the difference in APGAR scores between the two conditions was not significant, F(l, 16) = 0.312,p = .584.
