The pregnant body undergoes numerous changes physically as well as physiologically and spiritually that can cause stress and or discomfort to the mother. Massage is a wonderful way to help alleviate many of these discomforts, as well as promotes a sense of well-being.
I would just like to know which teas in general are safe to consume during pregnancy (I am 22 weeks right now). I did a little research on this matter but am still not sure which teas I can drink. I have been drinking rooibos (redbush) tea lately (about a cup a day) with the impression that this is okay.
I love drinking tea (green tea, chia tea, ginseng tea and all others) but I have a concern about it.
I'm working as a club singer, and had recently found out that I'm 3 weeks pregnant. I'm excited about it, so is my boyfriend.
As happy as I am with my job, I know that it's not the best condition for my baby. You see, every time I think I moved too much, or force my voice too much while singing, I feel uncomfortable where the baby is.

So you don't have to call a maid to do the household cleaning unless you want to. If you are going to stick to doing the dirty work yourself, there are steps that you can take while cleaning during pregnancy to keep you and your baby safe from harm.
Just as diet, rest, and exercise take on an extra importance during pregnancy, so does the use of seat belts. Your unborn baby is depending on you to keep him/her safe from harm. So, every time you get into an automobile, as either the driver or a passenger, use the car's three-point restraint system.
