My advice to moms-to-be

Birth coaching, Charl's journal, Natural fertility, Pregnancy Comments Off on My advice to moms-to-be

So I want to take my hat off to all the couples and specifically, women, who are pregnant this November. I know your body temperature is soaring with the higher temperatures, and the dry air can dehydrate you much faster. Please look after yourself. Care starts at home. Avoid heavy lifting and tight clothing. Wear natural, loose fabrics as much as you can. Don’t be a hero. You’re already one carrying another life. Oh, and avoid beauty magazines. They present false pictures that lie and make you feel less than you are. Ease your aching feet with castor oil and a few drops of lavender oil. Take regular epsom-salts foot baths. Stock up on preg-safe herbal teas e.g lemon balm, chamomile and milk thistle. Above all, breathe. Breathe. Breathe. You’re doing fine. You’re doing well. We salute you!
