Normal delivery takes place between 38 to 42 weeks. Most of the lanugo hair is lost and the skin is flesh coloured and plump. The baby’s head shifts downwards. Fat continues to accumulate, organ functions improve, and the placenta provides antibodies improving immunity. The baby is 19 to 21 inches and weighs 7 to 8 pounds.
Have a diet which includes fats, proteins, and vitamins. Prepare rice gruel with milk and a little ginger and cardamom. You can add jaggery for taste. Have fruits like guava, dates, raisins and oranges to improve blood circulation. Also, include fenugreek (methi) and pippali in your diet as it stimulates the uterus.
Massage the abdomen regularly and spend extra time on the nipples to prepare for nursing. Your doctor might advice anusvati basti in the last month to help the baby be in favourable position for delivery.
