Pregnancy is a transformational journey towards parenthood. Bodily and mental changes are inevitable for the one who is pregnant, and many find this transformation to be challenging. This paper reimagines the emotional pregnancy within the context of a prenatal yoga setting. In doing so, it explores novel approaches to designing interactions in a supportive environment. We introduce an explorative study with three women at different stages in their pregnancy to suggest avenues for design research in support of emotional wellbeing during this time.
