During pregnancy if there is no physical or mental discomfort one can continue with her professional life provided the work is not hazardous or mentally stressful. Once one decides to continue with her professional life during this tender phase, she needs to do it in concurrence with her treating doctor’s advice and following a few basic things that will not only keep her productive in her professional life, also keep her healthy as well.
Taking a short and regular breaks : Do not work for long at a stretch. Go for a short and frequent breaks. Stroll for a few minutes, and even spend a few minutes with eyes shut and feet up will reenergize you.
Drinking sufficient fluids : Drinking water throughout the day will keep you refresh by regulating your body temperature, lubricating your joint, delivering nutrition to cells and preventing infection.
Doing away with needless activities : Do not overwork, go for a daily to-do lists according to the priority and try to delegate work as much as possible. Exclude unnecessary works from your routine.
Talking your stress out : Never allow stress to build-up. Stress has the potential to have an undesirable effect on both you and the foetus inside. Ventilate your stress or frustration by sharing it with close colleague or supportive co-worker.
Keeping nausea at bay : Pregnancy queasiness or morning sickness can be triggered by some specific odors or smell or taste of certain foods, which vary person to person. Daylong feeling of nausea, which is common till 3rd or 4th month of pregnancy, can disturb your work-life. So, to stay away from nausea follow the steps like choosing food carefully, snacking often, drinking water a plenty, etc.
Hitting bed early: Set a self-goal for at least eight hours of sleep each night. To ensure this hit bed early, stop using cellphone, at least 30 minutes before.
Following a fitness routine : Physical activity can help lift energy levels — especially for those who are mostly sedentary. Moving around every few hours also can ease muscle tension and help prevent fluid buildup in the legs and feet. According to the advice of your obstetrician take brief walk or join any prenatal fitness class.
With the progress of one’s pregnancy, everyday activities like sleeping, sitting and standing often turn uneasy. Select a comfortable chair with good lower back support can make long hours of sitting much easier. Go for a small pillow or cushion to provide extra support for the back. Try to keep the feet in the same level to avoid swelling.
Knowing how to stand and bend: Those who have to stand for long periods ensure to put one foot up on a footrest, low stool. Switch feet often and take frequent breaks. Be careful when you need to lift something , be careful about the weight. Even when lifting something light, try to bend at the knees, not at the waist. Avoid twisting the body while lifting.
Pregnancy doesn’t end with giving birth, nor giving birth ends with a vaccination program. Here at SRCC Children’s Hospital, managed by Narayana Health Mumbai; experience and enjoy the journey from ‘good news’ to your child attaining adulthood.
