Hi Everyone, Does anyone know anything about pelvic congestion? I have had a search on the forum but haven't found anything. I have a lady who is suffering from pelvic congestion and she is now coming up to 37 weeks, it's not acute but it is uncomfortable. The docter hasn't really given her any exercises to alleviate the problem other than "stay off your feet"??!! Not as easy as it sounds. Are there specific poses that will help and any poses to be avoided? I'm guessing squats, and any poses that will place pressure on the pelvis.... Any advice would be appreciated Rebecca

Hi Rebecca, It might be worth doing a search on swelling instead of congestion. I don't know if you have been following the recent discussion regarding a lady's severe sweeling of ankles but there is general advice in the discussion that will also apply to your lady as the issue of the lymphatic drainage being compromised is common to both problems and Dr gowri Motha's suggestions in her book regarding diet, nutrition and partner lymphatic drainage rmassage in the form of her 'creative healing technqiue' specifically regarding pelvic congestion may also be helpful for your lady. I will leave it to one of the fully qualified Yoga teachers to comment on specific suggestions for practice at this late stage. Best wishes, Wendy
