Staying to Full Term

author of Baby Magic for your Magic Baby

A baby was designed to be in the womb for a full 40 weeks. Sometimes there are problems that force a baby to be born too soon, which can lead to health and development issues. Fantasy Art of Patricia Pierce-Phillips Babies need all the time in mommy’s body as they can get. As a matter of fact, after a baby is born, the “fouth trimester” or period of the following 3 months is also vital to stay as close to mom’s body as possible.

What kinds of things can encourage early labor and how can you reduce the risk?
Stress is one of the biggest factors. Your pregnancy should be free from physical and emotional stress as much as possible. We all know life happens, and we do not live in a bubble, but the way you deal with the stressful life issues that occur make a significant difference in how your body and your baby will react. If you have an especially worrysome day, take some time to pamper yourself and relax. Run yourself a bath with lavendar, get a massage, read a book in the garden with a cup of tea. Also, continue to talk and seek support when necessary. Build yourself a support network of friends and family and let them know if you need something.

Healthy eating is another factor that can help to prevent preterm labor. Maining a good diet filled with the vitamins, minerals, proteins, and fats your child needs to grow and flourish during that magical time in your womb. Your diet should be low in saturated fat and cholesterol, and high in water intake. Try to eat fresh fruits and vegetables as well as whole grains and natural oils such as olive. Be sure to have enough folates and vitamin C in your diet as well. Many of these nutrients can be gained from herbs. Susun Weed’s Wise Woman Herbal for the Childbearing Year has many wonderful suggestions to help maintain a healthy pregnancy.

Healthy lifestyle has a direct impact on the wellness of you and your child. If you do not create a healthy environment for your baby to grow in, your body may encourage or stimulate your baby to leave. An unhealthy environment includes one filled with cigarette smoke, drugs or alcohol. These should not be polluting your body, especially when trying to nurture the growth and development of your child. Try to maintain activity, such as walking or swimming. Prenatal yoga is also a great way to relax and prepare while building a healthy environment for your baby.

Nourish your child as you would a tender flower, with love energy, with active communication, with good food and a healthy environment and your little one will have the best chance to reach full term and full potential until she is ready to leave your body and come into your arms.
