Can you do yoga after embryo transfer?

If you’re going through IVF, you have no doubt already googled everything to do with embryo transfers and now have a head full of conflicting advice.

Some people say you should put your feet up and not move at all. Others say you should keep doing what you’ve always normally done. And then don’t even get me started on the list ‘don’t dos’ after an embryo transfer which may make you feel too afraid to even blink.

Can you do yoga after embryo transfer?

YES!

Actually I’d even go a step further and suggest you should do yoga after your embryo transfer. A gentle restorative yoga class is going to help you breathe a little deeper and relax at this stressful time.

After transfer it can feel like everything is on the line. It’s your body that’s making this baby, yet you really have no control over whether it happens, or not. Uncertainty makes anxiety a whole lot worse and this is where yoga comes in.

Yoga can help to give you a positive focus through visualisations and affirmations and also help to gently move some of the stress out of your body.

Because the focus of yoga is listening to your body, if you practice in this way yoga is perfectly safe to practice after an embryo transfer.
