Ayurveda in Pregnancy: Take Care of Yourself During Those 10 Months


| 8/2/2018 10:53:00 AM


In my Ayurveda practice, I often get questions from my clients asking if there are any tips from Ayurveda during pregnancy. I would say, Ayurveda is a life science. Its not just tips for pregnancy, but it has some real advice which can do wonders for mom and child.  

Ayurveda says, "If a pregnant woman is taken care of, as advised, she will give birth to a child who does not have any diseases—a healthy, physically strong, radiant and well-nourished baby."

Pregnancy is not merely a physiological process, it is a great responsibility to father and mother. The mental and physical status of the mother is important for a healthy pregnancy. There are certain general rules from inception to delivery which include regimen and diet.
