Three Natural Remedies for Pregnancy Symptoms
Are you a soon-to-be mom? Congratulations! As a traditional wife, taking care of our family and loved ones is our top priority. It's exciting to know that we're bringing a new life into the world, but pregnancy symptoms can make it challenging for us to maintain our daily routines. Have you ever felt uneasy and struggled with morning sickness, fatigue, or anxiety during pregnancy? It can be hard to focus on household chores and cooking nutritious meals when your body is going through these changes. Let me share with you three natural remedies for pregnancy symptoms, so you can overcome these challenges and enjoy a healthy pregnancy.

Ginger - Ginger has been used for centuries as a remedy for nausea and vomiting. Morning sickness can take a toll on our bodies and make it hard for us to carry on with our daily routines. Ginger can help reduce nausea and soothe the discomfort in our stomach. Whether you prefer a fresh ginger tea, ginger supplements, or ginger candies - incorporating ginger into your diet can help ease morning sickness and improve your appetite. My midwife also suggested that morning sickness can be a sign that we are deficient in Magnesium and Potassium. Essential nutrients for keeping healthy.

Prenatal Supplements - I personally do not take a one size fits all prenatal. I supplement based on my blood work. So many prenatal supplements on the market are full of fillers and things we just don't need. Most of our nutrients should be coming from what we eat. A few supplements I need during this pregnancy are Vitamin B12, Vitamin D3 + K2, Probiotics, and a Liquid Iron. Your midwife or doctor should be able to help you target what supplements your body actually needs through blood work throughout your pregnancy. At the beginning of my pregnancy, I was low in B and D. As my pregnancy has progressed, I have depleted a few other nutrients. So get your blood work done, and supplement what your body needs. 

Exercise - Pregnancy can take a toll on our energy levels, making it challenging to maintain an active lifestyle. However, exercise can benefit both the mother and the baby. It can help ease backaches, constipation, mood swings, and even improve your sleep. Gentle exercises such as walking, yoga, and swimming can do wonders for your body and mind during pregnancy. Consult with your doctor before starting any new exercise routine. Walking does wonders. It also helps with our blood pressure and insulin levels. My midwife has me walking at minimum 1 hour a day 3x a week to maintain my health. 

Being a modern traditional woman means taking care of our families while maintaining a healthy lifestyle. Pregnancy symptoms can be overwhelming, but incorporating these three natural remedies into your daily routine can help you manage them with ease. Keep in mind that every pregnancy is unique, and it's crucial to consult with your doctor before taking any new supplements or starting any new exercise routines. Remember to listen to your body, and don't hesitate to ask for help when needed. You got this, mama!
