Pregnancy is a beautiful phase of a woman’s life. Every woman’s pregnancy journey is unique. Ayurveda believes that the creation of life was a reflection of the divine aspect within us. As an expecting mother, it is important to pay heed to every aspect that could influence the health and development of a baby. During pregnancy period, a woman, not only require care from their family, but they also need to keep themselves pure from within so that the baby is healthy as the mother’s mood and health reflects on the growing baby.
While pregnancy is supposed to be seen as joy, for many women it can be a struggle to adjust to the new changes. It’s a fact that pregnancy can be fairly uncomfortable.
