Healthy eating in pregnancy plays a critical role in a baby’s growth and development. Even though we are aware that healthy eating is important but most people lack knowledge of what comprises healthy eating and a balanced diet. Adopting healthy dietary behaviours in pregnancy helps you to prevent adverse pregnancy outcomes such as low birth weight babies, diabetes, and hypertension. Healthy behaviour in pregnancy improves pregnancy outcomes, promotes foetal brain development. It also protects the baby from various diseases like hypertension, diabetes, heart disease when he/she grows up as an adult.
Yoga is a mind-body practice. A multifaceted approach is adopted in pregnancy where different poses keep you active, prepare you for labour and childbirth. Meditation and focussed breathing help you endure pain during delivery, increasing your chances of having a conscious birth experience. Yoga helps pregnant women enjoy pregnancy by alleviating minor discomforts, decreasing stress, and helping you connect with your baby.
