What precautions do I need to take to have a normal delivery of a baby?
Hello, I am a 27 years old female. I am 4 months pregnant. I don’t want to have C-section as I heard a lot about the after-effects of a C-section. I am hoping for normal delivery. Can anyone what precautions I should take on early-stage for normal delivery of a baby?
@priyal Hello, congratulation!!
There are no magic tricks or sure-shot formulas that will help for normal delivery, there are things that can be worked out and paid attention to, to improve the chances of having a normal delivery.
- Regular exercise- Regular exercises can help the body muscles to combat the stress of labor pains and exercises which work mainly on pelvic muscles help you to have a normal delivery.
- A Healthy Diet- a healthy diet is not only important for the mother but also for the healthy growth and development of the unborn baby. The right nutrition strengthens you and nourishes your body, which makes you capable of facing the challenges of labor easily and comfortably. Have a lot of green fresh vegetables and fruits. Stay hydrated by having plenty of fluids and water. Avoid processed and other fatty foods to maintain a healthy weight, as much weight gain can interfere with the chances of having a normal delivery.
- Get 8-10 hours of sleep
- Thank you and enjoy every moment of your journey from pregnancy to childbirth and motherhood.
