el­e­men­tary!

Mother & Baby (UK) - - BUMP & BIRTH -

‘Ac­cord­ing to Ayurveda, ev­ery­thing in the uni­verse – in­clud­ing peo­ple! – is made up of the five el­e­ments of earth, wa­ter, fire, air and space,’ ex­plains Seema. ‘And ev­ery one of us has a unique com­bi­na­tion of th­ese five el­e­ments, which are then loosely cat­e­gorised into three Doshas – Pitta, Kapha and Vata. Each of th­ese Doshas rep­re­sents a par­tic­u­lar bod­ily en­ergy, and they con­tin­u­ously change in re­sponse to our ac­tions, thoughts, emo­tions and any other changes to our mind and body. Dur­ing preg­nancy and birth, it’s be­lieved that the Vata Dosha can be­come im­bal­anced due to the huge tran­si­tional changes tak­ing place. But th­ese changes can be re­bal­anced through diet, rest and care.’
