Navratri 2021: Sharadiya Navratri is starting from 7th October. In this holy festival that lasts for nine days, nine different forms of Maa Durga are worshiped according to the law. Every day of Navratri is dedicated to one of the nine forms of the mother. Let us tell you that nine goddesses are offered bhog for 9 days. It is said that at this time devotees make bhog for Maa Durga, with whom she is pleased and fulfills every wish of the devotees. In Navratri, devotees keep a fast for 9 days to please Goddess Durga. At the same time, some pregnant women also keep the fast of Navratri. But sometimes some women unknowingly ignore their health during Navratri. But, they should not do so. Pregnant women should take care of certain things during Navratri.
Know what things pregnant women should keep in mind during Navratri fast
Pregnant and lactating women should avoid food like potatoes, kheer, sabudana, pakoras during Navratri fast. Actually these things help in gaining weight. Along with this, many types of complications can also arise from eating them.
Many women do not eat salt during fasting due to which weakness arises in their body. In addition, it also has an effect on blood pressure. Avoid doing this. Use rock salt during Navratri fasting.
Pregnant women should never fast without water. Pregnant women should not keep Nirjala fast. Keep drinking water frequently during the fast.
Do not think for yourself about keeping the fast. Be sure to ask the doctor about this. If the doctor feels that fasting will not harm you and your baby, then keep the fast.
Do not hurt your body under any circumstances. When you are pregnant, you and your baby need a lot of energy. During this, keep eating fresh fruits and such ingredients which are necessary to give energy to the body during fasting.
Some women keep fast for a long time. By doing this, there is weakness, acidity, headache and anemia in the body.
Never ignore the signals of the body. If you feel sleepy or weak, listen to your body immediately and consult a doctor.
While keeping the fast, do not stick only to solids, but also keep taking liquids. Drinking buttermilk, fresh juice, milk and a lot of water is very important during fasting.
