OBJECTIVE: The study aimed to evaluate the effects of integrated yoga on blood pressure and pregnancy outcome in hypertensive disorder of pregnancy.

METHODS: Seventy-nine patients were randomized into study and control groups. The study group received the intervention in the form of integrated yoga for 4 weeks. Final analysis was done on 30 patients each of study and control group.

RESULTS: The mean systolic BP declined by 7.43 ± 5.86 mmHg in the study group as compared to 2.50 ± 5.21 mm Hg in the control group (p value 0.002). The mean diastolic BP prior to delivery was 88.00 ± 3.71 mmHg in the study group and 92.20 ± 5.02 mmHg in the control group (p = 0.001). The maternal comfort in labor was significantly higher and the duration of labor significantly reduced in the study group.

CONCLUSION: Integrated yoga effectively reduced systolic and diastolic blood pressures and increased maternal comfort during labor in hypertensive disorder of pregnancy.
