Abstract: This quasi - experimental study investigates the effects of prenatal yoga on pelvic girdle pain PGP and depression in pregnant women during their second trimester. The study involved 10 participants aged 23 - 28 years with a gestational age of 14 - 27 weeks, all experiencing significant pain and depression. Over three weeks, participants practiced prenatal yoga for 30 minutes a day, three times a week. Pain and depression levels were measured using the Visual Analog Scale VAS and Hamilton Depression Rating Scale HDRS before and after the intervention. The results showed a significant reduction in both pain and depression, with calculated t values of 7.236 and 6.678, respectively p<0.05. This study supports the effectiveness of prenatal yoga as a non - pharmacological approach to alleviate pain and depression.
