All-Natural Summer Health Tips for Expecting Mamas


| 6/12/2018 2:30:00 PM


Staying relaxed and trying to beat the heat threatens your shifting mood—it’s too much effort. Can’t you grumpily eat your ice cream in peace? The next person who tells you to chill out automatically gets the call for craving duty. Send them out for extra water bottles and ice cream.

Here are a few other all-natural summer health tips for expecting mamas.

1. Drink More Water

You need all the water you can get, feeling like a beached whale in the hot season. Moving around in the heat as you tow your baby bun will get you sweating extra fast.

Invest in a large travel cup and fill it with water. Most moms drink 10 cups a day when expecting, so when you feel parched, start with water. Dehydration can lead to a risk of preterm labor and contractions. Listen to your body, and drink water or juice when you feel dizzy or lightheaded.



2. Wear Light, Layered Clothing

Your temperature shifts throughout the day, and the hot sun doesn’t help with that. One restaurant feels like an icebox, while the produce aisle of the grocery store feels like a sauna.

Keep your body cool by wearing light, layered clothing. Natural textiles feel soothing against your sensitive skin, and the light fabric allows you to sweat more effectively. When faced with awkwardly shifting temperatures, the layers let you adjust yourself to the environment.
