Once your doctor has given the go-ahead for you to begin prenatal yoga, you might discover that a regular practice that emphasizes meditation or relaxation has a markedly favorable effect on your mood.
Talk & think positive
I advise my expectant patients to speak encouragingly, compassionately, and positively to themselves whenever they begin to feel depressed.
It can be helpful to write a few affirmations on sticky notes, tape them on a wall, and recite them aloud once or twice a day until your brain becomes accustomed to the practice.
Consume nutritious foods.
Consuming well-balanced foods will benefit you and your unborn child while also improving your mood. You can lessen mood swings by eating a bowl of oats because it contains vitamin B, which helps the brain to work more effectively, the feel-good hormone.
Get proper sleep
Getting enough sleep can be extremely difficult, especially as your pregnancy goes on. You might also start to lose your energy and become frustrated. Although getting enough sleep is crucial to Mom’s and the baby’s health, it can be difficult to feel comfortable in bed, and you could find yourself getting up frequently to use the lavatory.
If necessary, take medication
