Ayurveda and pregnancy
In Ayurveda pregnancy and birth are seen as an extremely important time in a woman life, a rite-of-passage during which she needs the most caring attention and support, not only for her benefit but more for the baby she carries.
According to Ayurveda the mother and her growing foetus are so interconnected that anything she experiences, either on the physical, emotional or spiritual level, will also be experienced by her unborn child.
If the mother is not calm and rested and does not follow a proper diet and life style she could be more easily prone to morning sickness, indigestion, increased weight gain, fluid retention, high blood pressure, spotting, anxiety, insomnia and mood swings.
Modern research has also shown how negative emotions affect the growth of the baby.
If the mother is very stressed, unhappy or unsettled during pregnancy, her unborn could be overly active in the womb or be born with congenital defects. Her newborn could experience more colic, crying and sleep problems and may develop dry skin, hyperactivity or muscular and skeletal problems, while growing.
I will address any pregnancy issues, pregnancy issues like, ad example, morning sickness, nausea, swelling, water retention and constipation. The intention is to make you feel more relaxed and energetic reducing your stress, fatigue and worries to promote the healthy growth and development of your baby and prevent complications during labour and after delivery.
