Here Are 13 False Pregnancy Myths to Help All Mothers-to-Be

There are many myths and misconceptions attached to pregnancy. Here are some of the most commonly believed in myths and reasons why they are not true:

1. Wide Hips Can Make Childbirth Easier:

When people talk about wide hips in the context of childbirth they are usually referring to a wider ilium. However, the distance between the iliac crests and the size of the birth canal are totally unrelated. During childbirth, it is the hole in the middle of the pelvic bone that counts and it can be big or small irrelevant of the size of the hips.

2. The Size And Shape Of The Belly Can Tell Whether It’s A Boy Or A Girl:

Most people try to guess the gender of the baby by looking at the shape of a pregnant woman’s belly. Although it will make things quite easier if it were true but it is not. The size and shape of the belly are affected by the size of the fetus and its position in the womb.

3. Frequent Ultrasounds Are Unsafe For The Baby:

There is no scientific backing to the myth that getting an ultrasound could harm a mother or her unborn child. People often confuse ultrasound with radiation. Ultrasound is just high-frequency sound waves which produce an image on the screen after bouncing off of the fetus and are safe.

4. It’s Bad For The Baby To Lie On Your Stomach:

The baby is well protected inside the muscular uterus and lying on the stomach would not harm it, as long as it feels comfortable.

5. Running While Pregnant Is Bad:Image result for pregnant woman running shutterstock

Becoming pregnant does not mean you should give up running. As long as you have a safe pregnancy and your doctor gives you a go ahead, it is completely fine for you to continue running.

6. Morning Sickness Only Happens In The Morning And During The First Trimester:Image result for morning sickness shutterstock

Majority of the pregnant women suffering from nausea but only a small percentage of it suffer it in the morning. It can be an all day thing and while for most women it does end after the first trimester for some it can go on until the time of delivery.

Lifting your arms around your head cannot cause the umbilical cord to wrap around your baby’s neck. In fact, none of your movements can have an effect on the position of the umbilical cord and a lot of babies are born with the umbilical cord wound around their neck and is easily removed by the doctor.

8. You Would Have To Get Rid Of Your Cat:

Cats can be the carrier of a rare birth defect causing disease called toxoplasmosis. However, this does not mean you have to say goodbye to your pet as soon as you get pregnant. It is recommended to avoid cleaning the litter box and if you do not have anyone to do it for you wear gloves while doing it and immediately wash your hands afterwards.

9. Pregnancy Is The Best Time Of The Life For All Women:

The general conception goes round that being pregnant is the happiest time in a woman’s life. In reality, many pregnant can feel stressed, afraid and general feelings of unhappiness. A small percentage of women even suffer from symptoms of depression. This can happen due to the changing hormones in a woman’s body which ultimately affect the brain and mood center. If a woman experiences depressive symptoms it should be treated as it can have adverse effects on the health of the mother and baby.

10. It Is Okay To Drink Once In A While:

When you drink alcohol while pregnant, so does your baby as it can pass freely through the placenta. This can increase the baby being born with some physical or mental birth defect. While it is hard to determine the safe amount of alcohol that can be consumed without harming the baby it is best to stay away from alcohol altogether during the course of pregnancy.

11. You Lose All Your Pregnancy Weight During The Delivery:

The extra pregnancy weight gain is due to the amalgamation of the weight of the baby, placenta, breasts, the increased volumes of blood and body fluid in the body and some extra fat. While the weight of the baby, placenta and amniotic fluid is immediately lost after the delivery, it takes a couple of weeks to lose the weight gained by fluid and also fat depending on how much you gained.

12. A C-section Is The Easy Way Out:Image result

When it comes to delivery there is no easy way out. Many pregnant women believe that a C-section is the less painful and safer way of delivery. However, in reality, a c section could be pretty painful as well the only difference is you feel the pain after the baby had been born, unlike the vaginal birth. It can also pose complications later and is only recommended by doctors when the benefits outweigh the dangers.

13. The Fetus Is Unaffected By The Outside Events:

For a long time, it was believed that babies are born oblivious to their outside environment. In truth, babies can hear sounds and recognize their mother’s voice while inside the womb. They are also able to detect light and taste the food by licking the placental wall.
