Who’s Prepping For Birth?? See How These Daily Habits Can Help Get Your Mind And Body Ready For The Big Moment - Pregnancy - 2021

Who’s prepping for birth?? See how these daily habits can help get your mind and body ready for the big moment🤩!

HYDRATE
You may hear this one quite a bit, but do you really know WHY you need to drink more water during pregnancy? Well for starters, water is responsible for carrying oxygen and nutrients to our cells, tissues and organs. Hydrating helps transport essential nutrients to meet baby’s developmental needs. But water also helps preserve adequate levels of amniotic fluid — which serves a number of purposes including cushioning baby and maintaining constant temperature.

STRETCHING
Did you know you could help get baby in position for birth, by daily stretching?? Yes, even simple stretches that take just a few minutes in your daily routine can encourage optimal position where baby is head down with back and bottom to mom’s left, and feet to mom’s right.

MEDITATION
Birth is more than just a physical experience — there’s actually a big mental component to the process. Your mental state and willpower will be needed to guide you through contractions and all the other painful parts of the birthing process. With the right mindset you can overcome many challenges.

EXERCISE
Similar to your daily stretches, gentle exercises throughout your pregnancy is one of the best things you can do for an easier labor and delivery. It can bring shorter labor and delivery, lower pregnancy complications and lesson the risk for postpartum depression.

SPECIAL FOODS
This one may be a bit surprising…but according to a recent study dates and raspberry leaf tea can actually help induce labor naturally, helping you avoid Pitocin and contribute to a shorter early labor!

  1. I´m 38 weeks, I´m going to start to drink raspberry tea and eat dates tomorrow. It´s my first baby and I´m 39 years old the doctor said maybe we will have an induction if we didn´t start labor before 40 weeks.

  2. I’m 38 weeks but feeling lonely and stressed out this time when I shouldn’t be.. unable to cope with stress and unable to express to right person as well.. bad at seeking support but suffering within..
