Subscribe to HomeVeda Parenting - http://bit.ly/subhvp Join us on facebook - http://facebook.com/homeveda -------------------------------------- HomeVeda Parenting - Helping women make an easy & an healthy transition into one of the most important phases of their life - motherhood. Find the right exercise routine for the pre & post delivery period, take care of your newborn & eat right - that & more; all on Homeveda Parenting & all naturally! -------------------------------------- Deep Breathing: • Deep breathing exercises are safe and can be done anytime during the pregnancy unless otherwise advised by the doctor • During pregnancy as uterus grows in size, lung capacity reduces leading to breathlessness Exercise Technique # 1: 1. Sit in a comfortable position with your back erect. 2. Now, put one hand on your chest and the other on your abdomen. This is to ensure that are doing the exercise properly. 3. Now, breathe in slowly. Imagine your body as a balloon which is being filled with air. 4. Let your lungs fill, let your rig cage expand and let your abdomen bulge and expand right up to the pelvis. 5. Remember, you do not have to hold your breath. 6. Now, exhale slowly. Feel your abdomen relaxing, your rib cage relaxing, and your lungs slowly emptying out. 7. Repeat this breathing pattern 24 to 32 times every day. • You may divide this in smaller sets of 4-6 each, done 6-8 times a day. Exercise Technique # 2: • You can also do this exercise with a slight variation. 1. In this version, the difference is, that once you have inhaled, you have to exhale from your mouth, & not from your nose as we showed earlier. • This exercise will prepare you to use both your nose & mouth for breathing, which will prove beneficial in the labor stage. • As you start to get comfortable, you can start timing yourself. Ideally, you should be able to do 5 complete breaths in one minute. Warning Signs: • Pain in the pelvis, vagina, or groin • Abdominal discomfort • Shortness of breath • Leakage or bleeding from the vagina • Dizziness • Exceptional fetal activity Tips • Do deep breathing in fresh air every morning • Avoid air conditioned environments

How To Calm A Crying Baby

Find the right exercise routine for the pre & post delivery period, take care of your newborn & eat right - that & more; all on Homeveda Parenting & all naturally! -------------------------------------- How to calm a crying baby Babies cry for a variety of reasons. Hence, in order to calm a baby it is important to identify these reasons and tackle them without getting worked up. Let’s see what all you can do. Process: 1. Check if the baby has a wet diaper. If yes, clean and change the diaper. Try feeding the baby. Babies cry when they are hungry. 2. Check if anything is making the baby uncomfortable, maybe a piece of clothing is pinching. 3. If you notice the baby rubbing her eyes, it means it’s time for her to go to sleep. Just like us, babies do get cranky when they are sleepy. 4. If none of this works, maybe your baby just needs some attention or needs to be cuddled up. 5. Hold the baby close to you & look into the baby's eyes. Talk to the baby in a soothing tone. Rock & sway the baby gently. If required, go out for a small walk. Sometimes just being able to see your smiling face & hearing your voice can calm down your little one. 6. You can also try swaddling the baby. Swaddling mimics the womb experience for the baby & can comfort her a great deal. 7. Finally, if you notice a certain trend in your baby’s crying, for example if she cries around the same time every night & is under 12 weeks of age, it’s quite possible that she is suffering from colic. Do not worry - just consult your doctor. There are many activities you can do at home to relive your baby from colic symptoms. Tips: • Avoid shaking the baby • Step out for a moment and take a deep breath
