Pregnancy is, no doubt, the most wonderful and trickiest period for a woman. Overweight pregnant women have so many problems like back pain, blood pressure, sugar in blood, trouble in labor etc. Here are some basic precautions for overweight pregnant women.
@ Make sure for regular body check up with your doctor.
@ Adopt a healthy diet for controlled weight gain. So you get perfect nutrition and less calories for your baby.(consult Astha Ayu Clinic for diet plans)
@ Examine blood sugar and blood pressure levels. Get routine urine tests done.
@ Exercise, do yoga and deep breathing but under supervision.
@ Look out for signs of premature delivery. Regular sonography is needed.
@ Ensure adequate sleep
@ Don’t think so much but be practical and try to tackle the situation with patience.

It is said that you should take care of your self till 6 weeks after delivery, as your uterus will take that much time to have original position and condition. Also, your baby will take that much time to adjust with feeding, environment and daily routine.
1) Don’t try to drive
2) Don’t lift anything heavier than your baby
3) Don’t try sex before you’ve healed
4) Don’t take any pills without doctor’s advice
5) Don’t do heavy household chores.
6) Don’t talk so much on mobile phones
7) Don’t over eat

Yoga has been proven to reduce the amount of stress hormones in your body. Ideally, yoga tones muscles without straining them,promotes good circulation, reduces stress, helps clear mental fuzziness, eases nausea,and relieves some of the routine aches pains of pregnancy. Learning yoga breathing techniques can also help you cope with contractions.

If you have never practiced yoga before, don’t try to start from scratch on your own or with a video. Instead, join prenatal yoga classes (we teach it).

With the permission of your doctor, you can exercise regularly with special supervision. It’s important that you stand, walk and sit with good alignment. You want your lower back to be well supported and back to be more straight than curved. Checkout your working area, and make sure that you are not contorting yourself, hunching over, leaning to one side,or putting pressure on your wrists. Your right postures and working habits will give you healthy pregnancy.
