Having a baby is one of the most unique and happy experiences for any couple. The feeling of bringing a life into the world which is our miniature version feels just so awesome.

This journey of getting to know the news first to delivering a baby is a real roller coaster ride for a woman, with constant changes in her body. A woman goes through lot of changes in her body and hormones which result in mood swings. Furthermore, un-easiness, morning sickness and difficulty in digestion are some of the effects a pregnant mother has to go through. She happily embraces all the change for her little one.

During pregnancy, it becomes extremely important to take best care of the woman’s day round schedule & lifestyle. Garbha Sanskara or pre-natal yoga is a scientifically proven way of helping an expecting woman to overcome her practical difficulties in pregnancy, prepare her body for child birth and at the same time focus on her emotional & mental health. Garbha sanskara initiates better development of baby along with the mother.

When does one start ?: Garbha sanskara starts even before the conception by woman.

What does it involve ? : It includes procedures like panchakarma, lifestyle changes like diet, exercises etc by husband-wife so that they contribute healthy gamates (sperms and eggs) for conception. As the famous adage goes, “As you sow, so shall you reap.” It avoids passing on prakriti doshas or the inherenet health issues to the baby. But if Garbha sanskara isn’t done before conception, doesn’t mean you cannot start it after. It benefits equally even if started once pregnant and is basically a life style to be followed by the expecting mother from the onset of her pregnancy.
