Nowadays stress is very common among all ages. If you’re carrying your baby, the first thing you have to avoid is stress. That’s toxic for you and also for your baby. Happy mom = Happy baby. Try to be active and engage yourself in things that give you happiness. Listen to music that gives a soothing experience to your loved one inside. A peaceful mind and positive energy can give the baby in the womb a good happy environment. Meditate for at least 10 minutes a day. Walk around as that helps to relax the muscles. The best exercise in pregnancy is walking that gives you a number of advantages. Practise breathing exercises as it helps a lot during labour. Learn Kegel’s exercise that helps you to get good control over that area and also prevent urine leaking during and after pregnancy. If your doctor advised resuming all kind of activities, then you can do squats, duck walk, etc. Before starting everything it’s always better to clarify with your doctor. It is believed that an old tradition of applying castor oil on your hip bones improves the flexibility in that area that helps in normal delivery. Don’t know whether it’s technically proven or not but it worked for me. Eat lots and lots of fruits that help you to maintain good health and fruits having low carbs so you don’t have to worry about weight gain. Drinking water frequently will help to rule out the dehydration problem and also helps in constipation problem that occurs commonly during pregnancy. Take high-fibre foods like greens and vegetables to avoid constipation problems. Another common problem in pregnancy is the haemoglobin level. A baby takes its nutrients from its mom. So it’s normal if there is a drop in your haemoglobin count. A drop in haemoglobin causes many discomforts like breathing issues, dizziness, etc. Eat iron-rich foods like beetroot, pomegranate, dates, almond, fig, raisins, walnut. Concentrate on your salt and sugar intake because of gestational diabetes and blood pressure problem. Do regular check-ups and follow your doctor’s advice. Take some extra safety measures in this COVID situation. Stay home stay safe. I wish you all a happy and easy pregnancy.
