During Christmas, the misconceptions, prohibition trees, and nervousness that fundamentally ruin the holiday come to the attention of expectant mothers.
We’ve put together some of these dr. Géza Angyal with the help of a chief obstetrician-gynecologist, we refuted them and gave tips on how Christmas could be different this year.
Well, the Christmas period certainly brings us a food that the inhabitants of our little country do not care much about, and that is fish. Hence the many misconceptions that fish should not be consumed during pregnancy. However, this is not true, the fish is especially good because of its high omega3 content. However, care must be taken to ensure that the raw material comes from a controlled farm, as unfortunately these organisms are also severely affected by human activity and may have high levels of mercury in their bodies.
The celebration of Christmas has slipped for a few decades. The point in the past was for the family to get together and have fun together, eat good ones, and spend this period with joy. Today, the point is the most expensive gift possible and the desire to satisfy everyone. Pregnantly, however, this degree of stress can cause enormous damage. Unfortunately, in addition to nutrient-deficient infections, stress is the second most common cause of miscarriages and premature births. The body of expectant mothers is heavily loaded anyway, so stress can work faster. There are two things we can defend against. On the one hand, by filling and maintaining nutrient stores. To do this, a significant number of experts recommend taking a vitamin preparation that is as complex as possible, properly structured, and has as many organic substances as possible. The absorption of such substances is up to 80% better!
Another powerful tool in the fight against stress is to let go of coercion. If this has been difficult so far, now is a great time, as we have a real, unquestionable reason: we are pregnant. And this overrides most expectations and obligations. You don’t have to walk around to relatives during the whole holiday, let them come! You don’t have to prepare an 8-course dinner, as that’s not the most important thing! The elements of the dinner can be broken down and everyone can make something, making it significantly cheaper and more relaxed. In the case of gifts, the value of handmade pieces is indisputable, but the purchase can also be solved online, so there is no rush, nervousness, just two to three clicks.
Alcohol and Christmas
“Alcohol and expectant mothers aren’t exactly good friends, but that doesn’t mean they are banned from each other. A deci of wine is still enough for a Christmas dinner or a New Year’s toast, just as your expectant mother doesn’t have to give up coffee completely.”He confirms dr. Géza Angyal.
Of course, this does not mean that you can bother now, as we can do a lot of it, but you don’t have to avoid everything that is put on the blacklist on the Internet. Instead of carbonated soft drinks, choose fruit juice and treat the cake as you would every Christmas. It is important to be aware that pregnancy is not a disease but a condition. Let’s enjoy it as much as possible, after all, it’s one of the most amazing stages of a woman’s life!
