Prenatal qigong, the basic constitution of a human being, depends on genetics and the quality of the parents' lives at the time of conception and during pregnancy.
This qigong is the person's heritage, and it cannot be replenished; however, healthy lifestyle, diet, and breathing practices can conserve prenatal qi and slow down its depletion.
Preservation of prenatal qi is one of the most important contributions of traditional Chinese medicine. It enables a person who is sickly and weak to live a life of health and vitality. The process involves a simultaneous conservation of prenatal qi with practices that enhance the formation of postnatal qi.
If pregnant, it is usually safe to practice qigong and it can be beneficial to help prepare for birth and to build up the energy and vitality after childbirth. We would always recommend seeking advice from your doctor as each woman and each pregnancy is different.
