Are you pregnant? Have you been constantly thinking about how your birthing experience is going to be? How painful it is going to be? Will you be able to handle it? Of course, yes! Every woman is capable of birthing naturally because that is how a woman’s body has been created by God. All you got to do is eat healthily, stay fit, and have a peacefully happy mind. Here are a few tips that will help you in remaining positive and confident when the testing time starts.
Figure out what is it that you need to know whether it is about pregnancy, your body, diet, your upcoming baby, or anything that is on your mind. Ask as many questions as you have to your doctor and take proper care of yourself accordingly. It is essential that you are well aware of what lies ahead of you. You may read some positive magazines related to maternity care and childbirth. Stay away from anything that makes you lose confidence and brings negativity into your life. When you have proper knowledge, you will know what you will require during birth and after delivery.
The fact is that you cannot do it all alone during pregnancy; you will need help in doing even the basic day-to-day activities. Do not hesitate at all in asking for something you need, no matter what it is. Childbirth is tough and you will need a lot of energy to get it done. Ask for water and food whenever you feel thirsty or low on energy. Surround yourself with positivity, and keep that one person around who keeps you motivated and understands your needs.
As soon as the pregnancy begins, you will face numerous changes. You might get clumsy or get tired easily. You will not be able to every little thing that you used to do before pregnancy and that is completely fine. What you got to do is just let it go; do what you can and don’t exhaust yourself. You must understand that your body is busy making a human being, don’t stress it out with less important tasks.
Staying fit and eating healthy will take you a long way; it will not only make your delivery easy but also keep your child fit and strong. Consult with your doctor and keep doing light physical activity without straining yourself. Include healthy food like vegetables, fruits, nuts, protein, fibre, and liquids in your diet. You may even practice breathing exercises as they are of huge help at the time of contractions. Here are some yoga exercises that will help your body become flexible and ready for birthing.
Prenatal Yoga and Lifts
The three yoga mentioned below help in strengthening the gluteus medius muscles which are the main muscles when it comes to delivery and pelvic floor support.
Square your torso as you extend the arms outwards straight to the side while keeping the wrists at the height of the shoulder. Make sure that the front knee is staying in line with the second and third toes. Keep the back foot slightly angled toward the front corner of the mat and press the thigh top straight back.
Self-care means indulging in what brings you peace and happiness. Whether it is reading a book, listening to music, or simply humming a song. Give yourself a light massage, it will ease pain and improve your blood circulation. Do what makes you feel alive and your child will feel it all too.
These were some simple tips that you may implement in your day-to-day living to remain confident throughout your pregnancy. Remember, what you feel so does your baby. When you are calm and at peace, your child will get it too which will help you in simplifying the birthing process. So, keep breathing peacefully!
