Default Reducing Stress During Your Pregnancy - 07-19-2013, 12:36 PM

It is maternal stress during pregnancy which is extremely harmful to your baby and considered as a major factor also. As everyone knows that drugs, alcohol and smoking are all horrible, but the stress part, that’s different.
Several studies have that maternal stress on the fetus may lead to increased risk of ADD / ADHD. And why it because the hormones you produce in response to stressful situations. These hormones then affect the baby’s development and can potentially alter the chemicals and hormones in your baby’s developing brain.
To get out of the problem related with your child, meditate, do yoga, read, practice deep breathing, relax, stretch, exercise…whatever works for you to release some of that stress that can build up on a daily basis. Avoid the situations and people that can cause strain for you. Always think positive thoughts.
For your baby’s sake and yours, do your best to minimize stress. May be you will even have a more peaceful, relaxed, easy going baby as a result.

Yes, this is something helpful I found. You can even join gym or training center for this. Meditation may also help you.
