It is often said that the 2nd trimester is the most enjoyable part of the pregnancy. So, this is when most women enjoy a pregnancy glow.
During the 2nd trimester, you will be more consciously aware of a baby inside your body. This is because the baby starts developing hearing, and can respond to stimuli. This is hence the perfect time to talk to your baby bump and start bonding with the baby.
To make your journey smoother, we have a lot of different programs. They can help you navigate through the 2nd trimester of your pregnancy.
Dealing with the physical symptoms, and the realization that you are forming a human being inside you can be overwhelming.
Prenatal yoga plays a very important role in not only helping you maintain physical health but also mental health.
Yoga consists of a lot of breathing techniques. If you start practicing yoga in the second trimester, you will learn how to resist pain through breathing. During labor, you will be able to manage your pain and anxiety.
At FitBirth, we offer a lot of guidance for prenatal yoga. To know more, book a consultation call with us now.
Certain studies have shown that women who are spiritually aligned enjoy an overall happier pregnancy. This could be because a positive and calm mind helps regulated hormones and functions inside the body. So, the body can properly adjust to the pregnancy. If as a pregnant mother you are stressed all the time, the fetus’ brain could suffer.
Spirituality is not essentially religiousness. Spirituality is about being positive, and at peace. You can achieve this in multiple different ways. This includes activities like Meditation.

DIET AND NUTRITION
Since a lot of the baby’s organs and features are being developed during the second trimester, diet and nutrition need to be carefully catered to.
Iron is one of the most important nutrients you need to consume during 2nd trimester. Apart from this, your diet also needs to be rich in protein to sustain your strength as you continue to develop your baby. Calcium, Folate, and Vitamin D are also other essential nutrients in the diet.
Every woman has a specific diet that needs to cater to their pregnancy.

Subconsciously or consciously, we often hold onto a lot of grudges. The inability to forgive has a lot of complications.
First, it can increase your cortisol (stress hormone) levels and cause a lot of issues in the body.
Second, it will disrupt your mental peace. Being mentally healthy and positive is very important to developing and giving birth to a healthy baby.
Third, during the second trimester, your baby starts to understand stimuli from the outside world. The message that your baby in the womb receives should be that of forgiveness.
If forgiveness is something you struggle with, book a consultation call with us now.
Being grateful for the simple things in life is very important to keep a calm and clear mind. Gratitude helps ground us. It attracts more positivity into our lives.
If you start practicing gratitude in the 2nd trimester, by the time your child is born, your outlook on life would be more positive.
It is important to bring a child into a positive and grateful environment.
If you want to start practicing gratitude during your pregnancy, book a consultation call with us now.
Hypnobirthing is the process of relaxing a woman and healing any fear and anxiety regarding giving birth. This is done through self-hypnosis and breathing techniques for relaxation.
The aim is to zone out the pain of labor and relax to the point where the process of giving birth becomes smooth. Controlled breathing, guided visualizations, and positive affirmations are the three main techniques used to achieve this. It is important to start practicing during the first trimester itself.
If you want to know more about Hypnobirthing and want to have smooth labor, book a consultation call with us now.
I AM RESPONSIBLE FOR MY LIFE
To center and ground yourself, it is important to understand that you are responsible for your life. Remembering this helps us prevent holding onto grudges or getting into fights.
We can take responsibility for our own lives and move forward. As a pregnant mother, your responsibility then becomes to look after yourself and your child well. The miracle of having helped us hold out a brighter perspective towards the world.
If you want to be able to grasp the concept of being responsible for your own life, book a consultation call with us now.

BELLYDANCING DURING PREGNANCY FOR GENTLE, EASY CHILDBIRTH
Bellydancing is a light form of exercise. It ensures that you can maintain a good posture, and learn how to consciously use your abdominal muscle. This will prepare you for the third trimester when the baby gets even bigger. With belly dancing, you can strengthen your pelvic muscles.
The best part is that it is a feel-good form of exercise that will help you keep a positive mind.
Hence, you can use this to your advantage and try belly dancing during pregnancy for gentle, easy childbirth.

EXERCISING DURING PREGNANCY
If your pregnancy has no risks, then you can continue your workout normally for the most part, if you have been doing them since before you were pregnant. During 2nd trimester, it is a great time to introduce light exercise into your routines. The 2nd trimester is also the time when you need to start mentally and physically preparing yourself for labor. Exercises make our body and mind stronger.
Certain forms of light exercises you can try are walking, yoga, and as we suggest, belly dancing.
If you want to safely exercise during your pregnancy with a companion, book a consultation call with us now.
