Natural Remedies for Pregnancy Fatigue

Fatigue is a popular symptom during pregnancy, especially during the first and third trimesters. It can interfere with both your work and personal life, which may leave you feeling a little defeated at times. Although a common problem, there is, unfortunately, no magic potion to fix this. However, one can combat this. Here are some natural remedies to counteract pregnancy fatigue.

Yoga (or any other light exercise)

Yoga is a great way to rejuvenate your system, both on mental and physical levels. It helps with overall circulation, mindfulness, stress relief, and depending on the course, it could be a real workout. You can even find yoga courses which are specifically designed for mothers to be. If yoga isn’t for you, any other form of non-strenuous exercise works all the same. Other activities you can do are swimming, low-impact aerobics, walking outdoors, and stationary cycling. Another plus is that exercise is another natural remedy to combat pregnancy forgetfulness.

Keep track of your macros and other nutrients

Nutrition is always important, but it is even more so during pregnancy. It’s advised to work alongside a medical and nutrition professional to decide how many carbohydrates, proteins, and fats you should consume daily. Other nutrients such as iron and folate also are important to keep track of. Iron deficiency is one of the more common problems that plant-based moms-to-be face. By increasing your iron intake, you can have yourself feeling more energized and put together. As for folate, you can take a supplement or increase your intake of green vegetables.

Schedule daily naps

If your work and life schedule allow it, taking daily naps (even for a quick twenty minutes) can really aid in improving your mood, focus, and energy levels. Your body needs the extra rest as it’s doing a lot to begin to support a second life. Getting into a routine of taking naps as needed is something you can carry over post-pregnancy as well. If you already have other younger children, scheduling a family nap time could be a great way to bond (and it also ensures that the house will be quiet enough for uninterrupted nap time)
