Things To Take Care Of For Pregnant Women In Intense Heat

Pregnant women need to be cautious during this intense heat. Everyone, regardless of age, struggles in extremely hot weather. The condition of pregnant women becomes even more challenging during such times. It is essential for their well-being and to prevent any problems for themselves and the growing baby due to severe heat so that they know what to do and what not to do.

Ways pregnant moms can beat summer heat

So, let's find out what pregnant women should take care of to stay healthy during this intense heat...

1. Drink Sufficient Water

Pregnant women should not experience dehydration. Therefore, they should drink enough water every day. Dehydration can lead to various problems such as dizziness, vomiting, dry mouth, and reduced urine output. To maintain a good fluid balance, experts advise consuming 6 to 8 glasses of water daily.

2. Consume Nutritious Food

During this hot weather, avoid fried and spicy foods. Extra spicy foods should also be avoided. However, completely giving up favorite foods can be detrimental to both the mother and the unborn baby. So, it's essential to maintain a balanced diet. If you crave sweets, you can have raisins, dates, and fruits. If you crave for crunchy snacks, you can have almonds, cashews, and pistachios. If you want to eat outside food, consult with a healthcare professional before doing so. To protect yourself from the heat, it's essential to consume plenty of fruits and fruit juices.

3. Wear Loose-Fitting Clothes

Pregnant women should wear light-colored cotton clothes during this hot weather. Make sure the clothes are loose and comfortable. This will provide much-needed comfort. Taking a bath in natural cool water can also help in staying comfortable. If possible, you can also use a hand fan for added relief. But in these circumstances, it's better to heed medical advice.

4. Avoid Going Out In The Sun

The intense heat of summer can increase dryness in the body. So, it's beneficial for pregnant women to take a nap for at least half an hour after lunch. In addition, ensure that you receive 7-8 hours of sleep each night. Avoid going out in the sun without any reason. However, if it's necessary, carry an umbrella, wear sunglasses, and carry a water bottle with you.

💙 An Appeal To Everyone

The intense heat and temperature can also cause distress to the animals and birds around us. So, let's try to show a little compassion toward them. Remember, animals and birds are also a part of us. Leave some food and clean drinking water for them on your rooftop, balcony, or veranda. They will be grateful and, alongside, Allah will be immensely pleased.

Thank you, and I pray that everyone remains healthy.
