Pregnancy and bath
For several decades there has been a debate about whether the bath is useful during pregnancy or harmful. And yet not so long ago (some 100-200 years ago) future mothers had the opportunity to thoroughly wash themselves in a bath.
Yes, and birth, if you recall, it was there. But maybe that’s why there was such a high level of miscarriage and infant mortality?
However, what was, it was. Let’s figure out how to behave to modern women in an interesting situation.
Is pregnancy and sauna compatible or not?
The benefit of visiting a bath during pregnancy is obvious. After a regular visit to the steam room is able to prevent and prevent such ailments as:
- late toxicosis;
- cardiovascular diseases;
- stria (appearance of stretch marks);
- various respiratory diseases (ARVI, ARI, influenza, etc.)
In addition, the bath procedure removes fatigue and stress, soothingly acts on the nervous system, strengthens the immune system, activates and speeds up metabolic processes, and also facilitates the rapid removal of toxins and the reduction of excess weight. And all this, as we all know, is very necessary for women during pregnancy.
In addition, future mothers who regularly visit the bath during pregnancy, are less likely to suffer from severe pain during labor. And the birth itself lasts much less in time than in women who believed that pregnancy and sauna are incompatible.
However, a sauna with dry steam and high temperature is not desirable to visit during pregnancy. But if there is no other option, then splash the ladle of water on the stones to increase the humidity and bring down the temperature.
The effect of the Russian steam room will be obtained.
It should also be noted that even our ancestors believed in cleansing the spirit and body of the evil eye, curses and other misfortunes during bath procedures. Therefore, a pregnant woman must go to the bath at least once a week.
So it or not, it is not known. But the Russian bath improves the mood and gives a lot of positive emotions.
Yes, and you feel after it, as if you were born again! And this means that pregnancy and bath are compatible!
Unfortunately, not all women during pregnancy can become healthier with the help of bath procedures. In the first place, the future mothers will have to give up the paired room, for which the period of bearing the fetus is very small, that is, does not exceed 15 weeks. When visiting a bath in the early stages of pregnancy, there may be a threat of miscarriage.
By the way, for the same reason, women in the first weeks of their interesting situation it is undesirable to take hot baths.
