As your body cradles and nurtures new life, you may find that you’re holding the news of your pregnancy closely. Some pregnant people hold the secret because the new life within feels vulnerable. An urge for privacy may be hormonally inspired or emotionally protective. Some pregnant people worry about miscarriage and feel the need to hold off on sharing the news. This is understandable. If you have signs of miscarriage or an early pregnancy loss, seek support for your medical and emotional needs.
There are a few things you can do to improve your body’s adjustment to pregnancy, such as getting enough sleep, staying hydrated without overwatering yourself, avoiding toxins whenever possible, eating regular small meals with proper nutrition, and working toward body balancing.
Body balancing helps you avoid nausea and promotes pregnancy vitality. The way we use the words “body balancing” at Spinning Babies® most often refers to the state of muscles, ligaments, and fascia. The connective tissue, or fascia, wraps every organ, muscle, and bone, including the spine and skull. Imbalances sometimes pull the ovaries, womb, or even midbrain structures out of balance, causing emotions, fertility, or function to be less than ideal.
Affirmations are short, powerful statements that can affect your conscious thoughts. Close your eyes, breathe deeply and slowly, and repeat the following to yourself each day throughout the next week. Fill yourself with breath and feel the joy:
