Ayurveda believes that pregnancy was a matter of choice and not chance. Even 5000 years ago, they recognised that couples looking to start a family needed mental, spiritual, and physical preparation to ensure a healthier and easier pregnancy and childbirth. The process, described as Supraja Janan, was done by the couple three months prior to conception in order to have a healthy Ayurvedic baby.
Pinda shuddhi, or the purification of the beeja (sperm and ovum), was integral to supraja janan. It was kick started using panchkarma therapies and yoga. But this isn’t about physical fitness alone. The couple had to be in a stable state of mind to bring a healthy child into this world.
This mental calmness is known as Sathwa Guna and is closely related to the eating habits, exercise, breathing, and meditation. A Satvik diet is also recommended for both the parents to restore dosha balance and ensures positive Prana energy.
Ayurveda believes that the foetus is capable of receiving, understanding and responding to love and affection. Therefore, it should have positive environment to grow in.
One part of supraja janan also deals with garbha poorva sanskar that encourages parents to communicate with the baby in the womb. Mothers are told to listen to music, inculcate positive thoughts, stay away from stress and negativity, focus on the divine, and read the holy scriptures during the term of her pregnancy.
