Dos and Don’ts for Pregnant Women during Diwali
Talk about pregnancy and here comes a long list of what an expectant mother should not do. However, Diwali is not a festival that can be celebrated with restrictions. Go on reading further to get an idea about how to blend these, should not and Diwali together!
Know the things that you should do during Diwali
Pregnancy is a time when you can indulge in all kinds of relaxations like a spa or a facial. Talk to your doctor to know which products are safe around this time and treat yourself with these comforts to get a perfect look during Diwali.
Wear cotton clothes
Firstly, they offer you high comfort levels and secondly, they do not catch fire as easily as the synthetic ones do.
Indulge in good food
There will be many temptations, but you must decide for yourself. If you know your body well, the decision about what to eat and what not to will come easy to you. Alternatively, you can always talk to your doctor about what is safe to eat. Whatever you eat, make sure that you eat in moderate quantities.
Keep yourself hydrated always
Diwali preparations tend to exhaust you, and therefore you should keep loading yourself with fresh fruit juices, buttermilk and plain water.
And, here are the things that you should not do during Diwali
Your swiftness gets affected around this time. Therefore, thoroughly cleaning the house without any help is not a good idea. You should not do anything that can call for emergency like carrying heavy loads, lifting too much weight, or stretching too much (to clean the cob webs, etc.)
Shopping during peak hours
The last thing that you should be doing is going in crowds. People will not know or will not care about your pregnancy. It’s for you to care about. So, opt to go for shopping during the morning hours when there is not much rush and you can shop peacefully.

This may sound impossible. However, you don’t have to lock yourself indoors. It just means that you need to take extra care during this period. Avoid lighting crackers that cause too much pollution. Also, avoid going to the areas where there is constant noise and excessive smog.
Too much travelling
Cut down on the number of relatives you visit during Diwali. Let them know in advance or invite them to your place. They will understand and will gladly oblige to your needs.
