Pregnancy is a very special moment. It is important that the woman continues to take care of herself and to feel pretty in this phase of her life.

Leader, some tips help to guide the pregnant women:

• The bath in current water is better: it may be of a spring, shower or with the help of a big mug;

• The bath with the woman sitting in a basin or with showers in the vagina are not recommended because they transport the pathogenic bacteria/microbes from the vagina to the womb where the baby is;

• Having her to wash her hair does no harm to the pregnant woman nor to the baby;

• Clean and comfortable clothes provide a well being feeling;

• Socks with tight bands may prevent the blood from circulating and may cause varicose veins;

• The best shoes are those with non-sliding soles to avoid falls.
