Pregnancy and sauna, pregnancy and childbirth

During my first pregnancy I was afraid to go to the sauna due to the fact that I had heard a lot of horror stories about the harm of heat for the mother and child.

Then, when I was already pregnant for the second time, my uncle and aunt moved to Finland for permanent residence. And our whole family began to visit them quite often. And it was there, in Finland, in the city of Lappeenranta, that I became acquainted with the wonderful properties of a sauna.

Finnish women, however, like men, simply worship the bath. By the way, the sauna in Finnish sounds like a sauna. In ancient times, even the birth of a woman took place there.

Contraindications to the sauna

Immediately tell about the contraindications to visiting saunas. If a woman has a complete presentation or low attachment of the placenta, bleeding, abdominal pain, infectious diseases, or any skin or neurological problems, then in such cases it is better to refrain from going to the sauna.

The benefits of saunas for mother and child

If a pregnant woman does not have the above contraindications, then, undoubtedly, the sauna will benefit her. From the mild effect of heat, the blood supply increases, and, consequently, the baby begins to receive enhanced nutrition.

The vascular, vegetative and nervous systems also improve their performance when they visit the sauna. Proved can be considered the fact that blood loss in childbirth among women who visit the sauna during pregnancy is much lower. True, there is one condition, the temperature in the sauna should not exceed 85 degrees, while the humidity should be high.

To avoid excessive overheating, it is best to alternate a sauna and a cool shower or pool.

From the positive effect of the sauna, it should also be noted that under the influence of heat in pregnant women, muscle tone is intensely reduced and the elasticity of the ligamentous apparatus increases. This helps reduce pain during labor pains and attempts.

In the sauna, skin metabolism improves and, therefore, the load on the kidneys of a pregnant woman is somewhat reduced.

It is worth visiting the sauna starting at about 15 weeks of pregnancy, but it is better not to do it more than twice a week. When you visit the sauna you need to cover your head. Shelf must cover with a towel to avoid the penetration of bacteria and fungi. I even applied a special gel to completely protect myself and the future baby.
