I know, everyone and their mother has told you what to do and what not to do during your pregnancy. But the fact is, at the end of the day its YOUR pregnancy, your symptoms, and your health and wellness. Why not use products and habits that work to make you and your pregnancy as smooth as possible?
Prenatal care is a huge business. There are so many practices, classes, advice on how to do this or that, and so on and on… Many CBD and hemp products are not only great for pregnancy but also have a world of applications for many different people. Lets get down to the facts; swelling joints, swelling breasts, muscle pain, morning sickness, weight gain, stretching ligaments and contractions are all symptoms an expecting mother might have.
The human body as all other animals has a endocannabinoid system. A network of receptors that read, digest, and utilize CBD. CBD has shown promise in helping with inflammation, hormonal imbalance, pain (usually caused by inflammation), arthritis, gout, and skin conditions for centuries. In modern practices, CBD is the non-psychoactive ingredient in cannabis and hemp and is completely legal in all 50 states when derived from imported industrial hemp.
Scientifically speaking, CBD is very unique in the way it affects the body. On a microscopic level, topically applied CBD infused oils, crèmes and other products communicate with the body. CBD research suggests it can stop the cycle of inflammation by soothing pain receptors, nerves, and it creates and enables the body to relax. During pregnancy, the muscles in many areas of the body are in an uproar over supporting the sheer weight of new life. The uterus rests on the pelvic floor creating tension and pain in the lower back, legs and feet. As the breasts blossom into the soon to be support for your child, they tend to cause strain and pain on the chest and shoulders.
Avoiding taking mainstream medications and painkillers is extremely important for many expecting mothers. What is safe? What will hurt my baby? Even according to parents.com ‘you truly can’t get by without medication’ is an old world problem. In the way of pain, nausea, and overall health and wellness for mother and baby, CBD might be a very natural and safe alternative to over the counter or prescribed medications (always check with your doctor before starting any hemp supplements, we are NOT doctors). During the first trimester, fetal organs develop rapidly, making them extremely vulnerable to potential drug risks.
The first trimester is very challenging for a myriad of reasons. Morning sickness affects many mothers. Many mothers have claimed to have used CBD and, according to them, it helped with their morning sickness. People in a lot of situations have made claims that they experience alleviated nausea symptoms, reduced pain, and an overall sense of well being. Of course, I’m not just speaking to those with prenatal symptoms, but every day patients who are suffering are making these claims every day.
So why not take a step back and rethink mainstream prenatal care? CBD is one of the most compatible substances with your body. Scores upon scores of medical and health care professionals use CBD for a myriad of ailments and they claim it works. For many it’s simple, the test results are back, CBD is taking the medical world by storm.
