The range of yoga poses or exercise movements you can do in your first trimester will be entirely different as you get to to your second or 3rd trimester. A good prenatal DVD should explain that clearly and have different exercises for each stage.

Moreover, a good prenatal yoga DVD should have reasons and demos of how each pose should be done so that pregnant ladies can execute it correctly. There should be examples of which poses can be done specifically for which stage of pregnancy. Better yet, there should be a pregnant girl in her acceptable trimester doing the poses and movements in each trimester.

Having a demonstration of correct respiring is also a key factor when choosing a prenatal yoga DVD. Correct respiring helps pregnant ladies stay calm and relaxed during pregnancy and as importantly while giving birth where correct breathing is vital in working with discomfort.

A good prenatal yoga DVD will also have relaxation and meditation techniques as this is also helpful for pregnant ladies in working with pain during birth.
