Our ancestors believed that the creation of life was a reflection of the divine aspect within us. As an expecting mother, it is important to pay heed to every aspect that could influence the health and development of a baby.
Go to bed during the Kapha time of the night, i.e. 6 PM to 10 PM and wake up before Kapha time, i.e. 6 AM and 10 AM. This sleep pattern helps the mother maintain energy, vitality, and alertness. Also, try to avoid naps during the daytime, except during hot and long summer months.
Begin your day with a full-body self-massage. Apply warm sesame oil with an open palm using long strokes along the long bones and circular strokes on the joints. Massage the abdomen gently. Massaging of the nipples is recommended after the 4th month. After abhyanga, take a warm water bath. It helps to open the channel of circulation.
The best diet for expecting mothers is the one that is sattvic in nature, comprising of pure, easily digestible foods, like rice, milk, ghee, wheat, fruits, grains, and fresh vegetables. This kind of diet nourishes the dhatus of the mother and the baby.
