Why Is It So Important to Maintain Vata During the Third Trimester?

While you should keep all your doshas (vata, pitta and kapha) balanced during pregnancy, vata plays the most important role in ensuring a healthy pregnancy. Apana Vata - a subdosha of Vata - is responsible for the downward flow of energy in the body. It is this energy that regulates the growth and development of the foetus and is instrumental in ensuring a healthy and natural delivery. That’s why it’s really important for women to maintain vata during the third trimester of the pregnancy.

Here are some tips to balance the apana vayu

  • Don’t force or avoid urination and bowel movements. Allow them to happen naturally when the urge hits.

  • To balance vata, eat a diet focusing on the sweet, sour, and salty rasas (tastes).

  • Avoid activities that include sudden movements, like jumping and lifting heavy objects during pregnancy. Opt for yoga for a good workout that promotes a calm state of mind and balances the apana vayu.

Here are some yoga asanas that help maintain Vata

Baddha Konasana (bound angle pose)

  • Start with legs outstretched.

  • Fold them at the knees and bring the soles of the soles together.

  • Holding your feet with both hands, gently move your knees up and down.

  • Repeat 20-30 times.

Marjariasana (cat pose)

  • Start on all fours, palms shoulder-width apart and knees width-length apart.

  • Inhaling, raise your head and gently arch your back towards the floor.

  • Exhaling, bring your chin to our chest and gently arch the spine upwards.

  • Repeat 5-10 times
