 Are affirmations really useful in pregnancy?
Affirmations are a powerful way to influence your subconscious and bring about the desired results. The subconscious mind is a powerful tool that can work both ways if not properly trained. Once you decide on a path of action, the subconscious mind will guide you through it to achieve your end goal, manifested by the communication between the conscious and the subconscious mind. The following methods of use are suggested.

Repeating affirmations
This can be done in your mind or spoken aloud, but it is essential to repeat the positive affirmations everyday. This can be done ideally in the morning or right before bedtime, as it allows the subconscious to continue working on it even whilst you are sleeping.
Writing down your affirmations
By writing down your affirmations, it is a reinforcement process that forces your mind to focus on it. By imprinting the importance of these affirmations in your subconscious, you are allowing it to be accepted and acted upon. It is also useful to leave the list in prominent areas such as your work space so that you are constantly reminded of the positive thoughts.
. Listening to a self-recorded tape
Over time, you will find that it is more than sufficient to listen to your voice repeating the affirmations. It will then be less important to consciously think of your positive affirmations.

 How can I be sure that I am well hydrated during my pregnancy?

A pregnant woman needs, on average, approximately 10 cups (2.3 liters) of fluid per day.  Listen to your thirst signaland enjoy a quick smoothie, a few slices of watermelon or a delicious, tall glass of water! It is important that you are drinking plenty of water, juice, and milk rather than caffeinated beverages.  If you just don’t like the taste of water, try adding a wedge of lemon or lime, or a little juice for additional flavor. If you’re not sure how much water you drink each day, fill a 64-ounce (2litres) container and try to finish it by the end of the day.This includes the recommended three to four glasses of milk or calcium-fortified soy beverage. Fluid requirements can also be met with a glass or two of fruit or vegetable juice, herbal tea, soup, rice drink or any other non-alcoholic refreshment.  Fresh fruit juices can contribute to your fluid intake.  Drinking water – either bottled or filtered tap water – is a great way to rehydrate during or between meals. In addition, your body will derive water from food, especially fruit, vegetables and semi-liquid foods like yogurt. Read more »

What happens during Birth?

How does the normal human birth occur?
This is a top question on the mind of many pregnant women. They have heard many stories of the birth experience, yet they are still confused and not sure as to what really happens. So how exactly does the birth process get started and how does the body proceed to give birth to the newborn?The labor process begins on its own at the predestined time. The production of oxytocin in the body gradually increases on its own and it slowly gets the uterus to start contracting in an attempt to open the cervix (lower part of the uterus). The cervix gets thinner and thinner and then starts opening up. This allows the baby to come down and finally out into the world. There are different stages that the uterus goes through and these are described below. Read more »
