What to do during pregnancy?

July 28, 2013

How to have a healthy, intelligent and smart baby who's full of good qualities? What all to do during the pregnancy period itself to make sure you have a healthy baby who has a bright future?

Many women ask about a child who will do something remarkable in his/her life, for this: read the Vishnu Sahastanama Or Argala Stotra paath or Maha-mrityunajaya jap while pronouncing the words out loud. These 3 mantras have the power to make your future child exceptional.

+ study something positive every morning and evening.
+ do reflect on what you study and discuss your studies
+ keep a learner's attitude

Before conception, it would be a good idea to have the home painted in the color white, cream, or yellow. One should use these colors more throughout pregnancy as well. Also, start living a very holistic/"saatvik" lifestyle at least 3 months before you start trying for a baby. Do some breathing exercises and body detoxification techniques as prescribed in Ayurveda.

Every month during the pregnancy period is governed by a particular planet out of the nine planets, below we list out what one should do in each month as per astrology. This is in addition to the recommendations given by your doctor/health care provider. These are in no way a substitute for healthy nutrition and sound advice by your healthcare provider.

1st Month:
Venus (Shukra)gives the best results in the 1st month. If the mother's Venus is weak, then in the first month, mother will experience some problems. These problems can even stop the pregnancy if Venus is not positive. It's important to make this Venus strong, because the first month is the most important month during pregnancy.
Remedies to keep Venus strong:

  • Eat mishri, saunf, and coconut as much as possible if there's no issue with blood sugar levels.
  • Avoid eating too many spices.
  • Husband and wife should  together clean their place of worship (like a small mandir/temple room in the home)
  • Manage your house well. Keep all the things in order and organized.

2nd Month:
2nd Month belongs to Mars (Mangal). Mars governs bones and blood. Healthy and beautiful looking and strong, fearless and brave child is possible only if the Mars is good.
Remedies for Mars (to be done in the 2nd month of pregnancy):

  • In the second month, donate gurh (jaggery)
  • Avoid spicy food during this month.
  • Do sunderkaand Paath religiously - especially for women who have a danger of miscarraige or due to them being weak.
  • In right hand wear a copper kada (Bracelet)
  • Don't wear red clothes
  • 10 gm shataavar and 10 gm mishri, boil in milk and drink.

3rd Month:
It belongs to Jupiter (Brahaspati or Guru). If mother's jupiter is strong, child's skin is beautiful. The children obey their mothers. The children are also very intelligent.
Remedies to make Jupiter strong:

  • Read and discuss literature and science in the third month.
  • If Jupiter is very weak, then don't eat haldi and stay in the company of a guru.
  • Apply tilak of white sandalwood and kesar or Haldi and Kesar.

4th Month:
4th Month of Pregnancy belongs to Sun. (Surya). For the soul upliftment and righteousness, Sun is important. If mother's Sun is strong, the child will have a strong face, and this child will be good in Maths and Philosophy. He or she will achieve great heights in society through his thinking and strong speech. The child will be very impressive and will have a spark in eyes.

  • In the 4th month, sit in front of the rising sun and do Gayatri Mantra paath
  • Drink lots of water in copper glass
  • Practice some art.
  • Don't eat food that makes acidity.

5th Month:
This month belongs to Moon (Chandra). If mother's moon is good and strong, the child's behaviour and emotion will be well-balanced. This child is happy and scientific-oriented. Both husband and wife must do these remedies to make sure their child has good moon. If the father is greedy, selfish or ignorant, then no matter how strong the mother's moon is, the child will have a bad moon.

  • Drink water from a silver glass. Avoid refrigerated water.
  • In this month, remove the copper bracelet (karha) and wear a silver bracelet in your right hand.
  • Also, wear a silver ring in your Kanishtha finger. (ring finger)
  • Discuss spiritual literature and discuss scientific things during this month
  • Do Anulom vilom
  • Eat juicy fruits.

  • Do japa of "Om namah shivaya" or Mahamrtiyunjay mantra.
  • Take part in discussions about spirituality.

6th Month:
This is the month of Saturn (Shani). Important to make Saturn strong to have a good nervous system. If Saturn is weak, the child may have breathing related or ENT problems as well. It's necessary to not take intoxicating substances throughout one's pregnanacy. However, one should not even be around people who chew tobacco/drink alcohol/take drugs or smoke - this pertains to the father of the child too, not just the mother.
Remedies to make your Saturn strong :

  • Avoid eating food that creates gas in your body. (Don't eat Baadi food)
  • Donate to leprosy patients regularly if possible
  • Wear an iron bracelet or ring. You can still wear them if you are already wearing a silver ring and/or silver bracelet.

  • Discuss national, social and scientific issues.
  • Daily recite Gayatri and Maha mrityunjay Mantra or Om namah shivaya mantra.

7th Month:

9th Month:
This is the time when the child has to be born. This month again belongs to Moon - the karaka of mother.
What to do in the 9th month of pregnancy? (Both husband and wife must do these)

  • Don't wear any other metal except silver ring or bracelet. However, if someone has

After the delivery:

If the mother starts getting ill after delivery (this may also include mood swings or any other mental issue), she should start doing the mantra chant of "om narayan namo namaha" or the chant of "om hring namaha" with the help of the kamalgatta beads. This will help get rid of the toxic elements in the body and help increase the body's energy.
