The Mystic (Growing) Inside You
Promoting the Health of Mother and Baby During Pregnancy : Ayurvedic Insight
Your pregnancy, make a conscious effort to be aware of your inner mystic, because you have your own inner mystic within you, but you also have this little developing mystic within your body.
FACT: Our constitution or dosha is formed in utero while in our mother’s womb! Based on her diet, emotional, mental and physical environments, as well as other factors, our personalities and physical and behavioral characteristics are determined. Through this understanding, one can gain many insights as to one’s strengths and weakness, as well as how one can realign to enhance our positive aspects inherit within.
Ayurveda provides significant assistance to women during pregnancy and it is a complementary addition to the care provided by. Mothers-to-be undergo many changes to their physical and emotional being during their 9 months of pregnancy as they create and support a new life. 
Ayurveda provides nutritional advice as well as practices such as meditation, the daily routine, yoga asanas, and considerations for happiness. Herbal Medicines can be used to assist the pregnant mother to feel her optimum as well as overcome challenges. 
Ancient Ayurvedic texts by Vagbhat describe–in detail–embryonic nourishment at conception and for gestation by the 5 elements. They describe the seat of the soul as a sixth tissue (the nervous system), which is the next to last tissue in the sequence of tissue nutrition in the body. The quality of mind and connectedness to this life are dependent upon the quality of the nervous tissue. Vagbhat explains that ojas – the finest product of maternal and paternal digestion and contained in the reproductive seed material — is the essence of the embryo and fetus, and the first component for baby’s tissue formation, and Ayurveda can explain how that stem cells are nourished by ojas.
Nourishing mama’s ojas throughout pregnancy (and postpartum) is a central topic in Ayurveda. The many refinements on healthy digestion and transformation of food that is spelled out in Ayurveda are about creating good quality ojas — because ojas is the finest product of digestion. It is the foundation of good health.
Depleted ojas may manifest as chromosomal defects in the fetus and can cause congenital abnormalities . If the ojas of the baby is weak, the child may be born with a defect. During pregnancy, ojas is unstable as it moves between the mother and fetus and this is why it is especially important to develop it.
It is believed that healthy Ojas, brings about love and compassion in both mother and fetus. Ojas, as a subtle material substance and essence of the tissues, requires the material support of a right diet.
Ojas can be strengthened by: 
• eating nourishing foods like
• spendig time in nature
• good sleep
• limited electronic stimulation
• practicing meditation, breathing exercises (pranayama), chanting, yoga.
• taking rejuvenating herbs like:
• Ghee can help to stabilize the Ojas in the fetus and to avoid chromosomal defects 
When a mother enters pregnancy with a healthy diet and lifestyle, making the necessary changes to enhance ojas is straight-forward — and she can easily make proactive choices that will help build the best quality body for baby. But when she has pitta or kapha ama (accumulated wastes from incomplete digestion or toxicities in the body), or excessive rajas or tamas in the mind (anger, depression, and so on) these conditions can tend to vibrate at odds with gestational priorities, and undermine the baby’s development.
ojas is our subtle essence responsible for vitality, health, radiance, energy levels, strength, immunity in particular, vigour, longevity of life and overall mental, emotional and physical wellbeing...

If a pregnant woman is taken care as advised she will give birth to a child who does not have any diseases – a healthy, physically strong, radiant and well nourished Baby. He will be superior to all in the race.
1. Pregnant women must be happy, be bathed daily adorning clean clothes, remain pious, sober and worship God; should not remain erect, flexed, hold heavy weights for long and avoid excessive, laughter, shaking and trauma.
2. A woman from the very first day of pregnancy must remain happy, clean, partake in auspicious acts, be devoted to the Lord, not exposing herself to unclean, mean or abnormal sights, sounds, eat foods that are stale, dry or too moist and not remain alone in her home. She should avoid overexertion, penetrating massage, sitting on hard surfaces or places that are too high and should consume foods that are nourishing for her body and mind especially tastes which are sweet and unctuous processed with recommended herbs.
3. The pregnant woman should be protected just like a vessel filled with oil to the brim is protected, without any shaking.
4. The woman, who has conceived should be looked after affectionately by her husband and attendants, supplied with things that she likes and which are good for her health, nourished with more butter, ghee and milk, always. A monthly dietetic regimen is advocated in Ayurveda. Milk and milk derivatives (butter and ghee) are used along with honey. These fulfill the required nutrition to the growing fetes. Ayurveda considers that Milk is the total food , ghee has the virtues to help in the formation of tissues especially the nervous tissue and butter in addition to the lipid requirement supplies adequate amount of vitamin A' too.
5. Ayurvedic dietetics and energetics denote five active principles of all substances: rasa, guna, virya, vipak and prabhava. Further, there are six tastes: sweet, sour, salty, pungent, bitter and astringent. Charaka says that the proper utilisation of these tastes maintain the body while improper uses increase the doshas.
6. Sattvic food is advised as it will create more settled state of mind necessary for the healthy pregnancy and good mental and psychological development of the fetus.
7. Good nutrition during pregnancy can help to keeping mother and baby healthy such as certain nutrients, iron, calcium, iodine and folate. Ayurvedic theories recommend easily digestible and pure foods that provide nourishment to the tissues of the fetus and the mother.
The three pillars of health from an Ayurvedic perspective are food, sleep and expense of energy. When we manage these three pillars, health is maintained in the body. During pregnancy, we pay special attention to these pillars to assure the health of the mother, and to optimize the health of the growing unborn baby within. 
Self-care during pregnancy is the first gift that the mother can give to her child. 
I can support these pillars, the health of the mother and the child will be optimized from the earliest moment and provide a strong foundation for the rest of the life...
