I often hesitate to teach half moon pose in my prenatal yoga / postnatal yoga classes because it requires so much concentration on stability to avoid injury - which is more likely with a lot of relaxin in your body.
An important guiding principal in prenatal yoga is "why choose a risky pose when there is a safer one that achieves the same outcome?"

I read a book today that talked about how half moon pose can provide relief for sore, heavy breasts. Who knew yoga could do so much?!

But with the right support in place, every pregnant student I've ever taught this pose to love how it makes them feel. Working with gravity to move your fascia in non-habitual ways is pretty powerful.
