Pregnancy is a time when there are several changes going on in your body, and you don’t necessarily know what’s happening. With the arrival of monsoon, there is likely to be humidity that can cause pregnancy discomfort due to the rains. Here are 5 tips that can help you enjoy a healthy pregnancy in the monsoon:
- Wear loose Clothes
With all the humidity and sweating, pregnancy can feel even more tiresome. You might feel stressed with the growing baby bump. Wearing loose cotton clothes can help you feel more comfortable with your growing bump. Cotton is more breathable and can ease the discomfort caused due to humidity.
- Get the right Footwear
In the monsoon months, make sure you don’t walk around barefoot or in rubber soled shoes during the rains to avoid slipping and falling. Ensure you take the proper precautions during pregnancy to avoid any harm to yourselves and your baby. The right footwear can make a world of difference.
- Stay away from Street food
Street food is unhygienic in the rains and may threaten the health of you and your baby. Although appealing, try to avoid roadside food. If you want to try any fast food, do so at a place that you trust and know to be hygienic. But to be on the safe side, it is better to avoid altogether and stick to freshly cooked food at home.
- Take Bath from Neem
Taking bath with neem water can be extremely useful in monsoon. Neem is known for its antiseptic properties and can fight germs and bacteria. Try this tip during pregnancy to stay healthy and active in the monsoon months.
- Sanitize yourself and your surroundings
If you step out in the rain, make sure you wash your hands and feet once you’re back home. It is important to sanitize yourselves as often as you can. This helps in keeping infections like conjunctivitis and viral fever away.
These are some of the tips that might be useful in the monsoon months, and you can continue to enjoy your pregnancy without any worry. Make these tips a habit and you will find that your pregnancy is easy during the monsoon. For any monsoon related queries that you may have, get in touch with our experts at KIMS Cuddles.
