Congratulations Mama, you’ve almost reached the finish line! The third trimester of pregnancy can be full of mixed emotions—the excitement of meeting your new baby, the fear of being a first-time parent, the bittersweet knowledge that your pregnancy is coming to an end—that said, this is the perfect time to turn to your yoga practice for affirmation and grounding.
Today we’re sharing six yoga poses, which are ideal for women in their 3rd trimester. In addition to your mat, you may like to have two blocks or a stool on hand, as well as a bolster or 2-3 pillows. If you’re not yet in your 3rd trimester, check out our prior posts featuring poses for your 1st trimester and 2nd trimester.

As a busy parent, it's easy to get caught up in the never-ending cycle of tasks and responsibilities. You want to meet your goals and pursue your passions, but it can be difficult to balance that with the demands of family life. If you're a natural "thinker," you might find yourself analyzing every aspect of your to-do list, weighing the pros and cons of each task, and feeling guilty for wanting to focus on anything other than your children. It's enough to keep you up at night, let alone the day-to-day challenges of parenting.

That's why I've put together a list of alternative exercises to help calm your busy mind and bring some peace to your hectic schedule.
