Four Super-Simple Tricks For A Healthy And Mindful Pregnancy
-- For Nutrients And Prenatal Benefits
Herbs have been this huge scary thing for pregnant women, but there are tried-and-true plants that were daily staples for the pregnant women of times past. Herbs that come highly recommended by herbalists and natural practitioners include red raspberry leaf, alfalfa, nettle, and oatstraw or milky oat tops. All of these herbs pack vitamins and minerals, so you can meet the recommended five glasses of daily water while boosting levels of essential prenatal nutrients like calcium and iron, and vitamins like C and K.
-- For Relief From That Thing Called “Pregnancy”
By the end of pregnancy, a woman has up to a 50 percent increase in blood volume, loose and achy joints, and a baby’s-worthy of pressure on nerves and blood vessels. No matter how healthy you eat, how much you exercise, or how much herbal tea you chug — pregnancy will get uncomfortable. Luckily, essential oils can offer assistance that’s nothing short of heavenly help.
-- For Health, Mood, And Pain
Yeah, you knew this was coming. I mean, anybody who’s anybody will tell you that you need to be doing yoga, right? But if there’s ever a time to start practicing, it’s during pregnancy. The body changes of pregnancy naturally lead to a change in balance, a drop in circulation, and more muscle tension. Last but not least, there’s the nagging discomfort of stressed bones and joints. It sounds rough — and it is — but guess what? Yoga can help with ALL of that. And then some!
Recent studies suggest that yoga may reduce blood pressure (a red flag for preeclampsia). Two other studies demonstrate that yoga can have a huge impact on pelvic pain among pregnant women. (a major complaint for women in their third trimester). And the benefits don’t stop there. Another study showed that postpartum yoga reduced a woman’s rate of depression and anxiety. We could cite studies all day, but the real point to make here is that yoga can help a woman tune into her body. By doing this, she comes to understand her body’s needs. In understanding her body’s needs, mama can do things that give her body the care and consideration it requires. But don’t just take my word for it. Try Be More Yogic’s prenatal yoga videos and you can see what they do for you and your body.
-- For Health And Happiness
Starting the day with yoga is a sure way to add butt-kicking power to your lifestyle. However, when you work early in the morning, or you have young ones (or *gulp* you have both), sleep can be a VERY precious commodity. Throw in the exhausting process known as “being pregnant,” and you may be ready to defend your mattress territory to the death. If so, I’ve got great news for you. Many of yoga’s amazing mental, emotional, and physical benefits can be yours — without even leaving your bed!
