Sweet Peas, Pods & Papas: All About Birth, B@@bs & Babies
STAY COOL AND COMFORTABLE
First of all and off topic, congratulations to Lynnie Genho who won a copy of Husband-Coached Childbirth in last week's giveaway.
As you read on Tuesday (Part 1
), dehydration and hyperthermia can cause
dangerous complications of pregnancy. Remember you have permission to be a Drama Queen during the summer months! Take it easy and take care of yourself as the
temperature climbs. You can also enlist
your coach and assistant coaches to help you take advantage of one, some or all of these comfort
measures to avoid dehydration and hyperthermia in the first place.
Ideas to Have a Safe Pregnancy During the Summer Months - Hello, Mr. Sun!
Tina Lebedies, a Bradley Method® instructor in Queen Creek,
Arizona, suggested I write a post about staying healthy through the summer. As the heat in Arizona and other arid states
is starting to climb, and humidity is starting to build in the rest of the
United States, I figured this was a perfect time to address that topic. As the sun gets stronger and the temperatures
gets hotter, it is important to take extra precautions to stay hydrated and
cool if you are pregnant through the summer months.
