Review Article Open Access


Asthma is a heterogeneous disease, usually characterized by chronic airway inflammation. It is defined by the history of respiratory symptoms such as wheeze, shortness of breath, chest tightness and cough that vary over time and in intensity, together with variable expiratory airflow limitation. Asthma is one of the most common chronic diseases worldwide with an estimated 300 million affected individuals. It is very common during pregnancy, it affects about 3-14% of the pregnancies. Pregnancy is a unique state of physiologic stress which demands physical, mental, and social adaptation. Researches in this field are very limited; therefore this review article will be helpful in updating the knowledge about disease and drugs that can help in satisfying the attending people, with an assurance that prenatal prognosis is not less than better as compared to pregnant women without asthma. Frequent monitoring of both mother and fetus to ensure symptom free pregnancy and a healthy baby is necessary. Yoga is one of the complementary medicines which are helpful in relaxing the muscles, releasing anxiety, improving blood circulation, respiration etc. Yoga uses a holistic approach to stress reduction and has been used to promote positive health for centuries. A regular practice of yogasanas, pranayama and meditation provide the relaxation and sound sleep in the pregnancy. It works as healing therapy to the mother and child too.
