  2. Stay active: Regular physical activity, such as walking, swimming, or prenatal yoga, can help improve overall health, reduce stress, and improve sleep during pregnancy.

  9. Get support: Surround yourself with a supportive network of friends, family, and healthcare providers to help you navigate the challenges of pregnancy and new parenthood.
  10. Bond with baby: Spend time bonding with your baby through skin-to-skin contact, baby-wearing, and other forms of close physical contact. This can help establish a strong connection and support your baby’s development.

By training, I am a American Board Certified Pediatrician. But in my younger years I grew up with natural alternatives. As a mom I have tried to incorporate both for my kids and it has worked wonders. And finally, as I am studying natural & alternative medicines, I realize the beauty and wisdom of living closer to earth. Hence in my practice I integrate both...for acute ailments I follow American Academy of Pediatrics recommendation but for simple and/or chronic conditions I prefer natural alternatives. In western training we were raised to think that "health is the absence of symptoms and problems". But eastern sensibilities has educated me that "Health is state that allows one to use the full capabilities of their body, mind and intellect. Therefore, healthy living is a balanced state of well being: physically, mentally, socially and spiritually." This implies that healing is not a "one-pill-fits-all", but a personalized experience.
