Pregnancy is a wonderful and often joyful experience for expectant mothers. The anticipation of having a healthy baby is a source of great happiness. Naturally, every expectant mother wants to ensure the best possible outcome for her child.

However, some folk superstitions have persisted over time, suggesting certain things that pregnant women should avoid. SSPDaily will take a look at three of the most common pregnancy-related superstitions and give a rational look at each of them.

Avoid unpleasant people

According to some popular beliefs, pregnant women should avoid meeting people who seem unpleasant. It is believed that such meetings can have a negative impact on the unborn child.

Although it is very important for expectant mothers to take care of their emotional well-being, there is no scientific evidence to prove that meeting unpleasant people directly harms the baby. However, stress during pregnancy is a real concern.

High levels of stress can potentially lead to complications. Therefore, it is advisable for pregnant women to minimize stressful situations, but this should be based on individual circumstances, rather than avoiding specific people based on superstition.

Limiting red foods

Another belief suggests that pregnant women should refrain from consuming red foods such as tomatoes, cherries, beets, and strawberries, as it is believed that such a diet can lead to difficult labor.

In fact, many red foods, such as tomatoes, are rich in essential nutrients such as vitamins and antioxidants that can be beneficial during pregnancy.

A balanced diet including a variety of colored fruits and vegetables is generally recommended for expectant mothers. Always consult your doctor or nutritionist for individualized dietary advice during pregnancy.

Avoid long walks in the fall

Some superstitions warn pregnant women against long walks in the fall, especially when there are many leaves falling. It is believed that such walks can lead to various problems for the expectant mother.

Pregnancy does not make autumn walks harmful. In fact, light exercise such as walking can be beneficial for both the physical and mental health of pregnant women. However, it is important to be careful not to slip and fall, which can be dangerous during pregnancy.

Proper footwear and safe, well-maintained walking paths can help reduce these risks. Enjoying the beauty of fall can be a wonderful experience for expectant mothers, but it is important to do so safely.
