Low amniotic fluid

Take charge this is a body warning.

Not something to be ‘managed’ or ‘watched’.

Do you have hot feet /itchy legs that have to go out of the bedclothes at night?
Do you think that it is normal to do so as this has been part of who you are forever?
Or just when pregnant?

This is actually part of a group of symptoms that more traditional systems of medicine see as being vitally important to correct. Instead of watching it all fall over slowly, please take action.
Look to the ‘health’ section on this site.

1 – The most common reason for this is dehydration.

How much pure (non chilled) water are you drinking?

water drink moreIncrease it unless it is 3 litres daily.
At least a litre before eating anything in the morning and a glass at least 30 minutes before eating diligently.
As you get towards when you are to feed your baby, the water habit has to be on automatic.

Then you will need to take at least 3 large glasses of water to sit besides you as you have no idea how long you will be sitting feeding and you also will be amazed at how much you can get through when it is on offer.
Please do not think drinking from a bottle will do – as you can’t drink it fast enough from there.

2 – What are you making that baby with?

Perhaps look to all I have on the site on breasts.
I focused there as few seem to see that the breasts being happy – mean all flows and nutrients in the body are working as designed to – perfectly. No hassles as the Qi flows. At the very least add in so much more topical magnesium onto your body – in later pregnancy at least 10 times a day – preferably each time you visit the small room to pee – use on your bottom and thighs.

wisdom treeThis will markedly help all aches and pains, especially when you increase the amount of vitamin D3 you are taking to at least 10,000 iu daily – preferably at least 30,000 iu until the end of the pregnancy – as you will find as do all my previously ‘high risk’ maternity patients – that it magically undoes all that was being medically monitored – we are not paying attention to the ingredients needed to run our bodies. Vitamin D3 is so important for all maternal life /birth/ pregnancy/lactation/hormonal/brain and nervous system development/immune system.

Asking for ‘evidence’ whilst watching the whole body breakdown is rampant in all medical endeavours – please do you own research – perhaps start where I ‘filed’ all mine when I was researching ‘saving babies after 24 weeks ‘ – as in – working out WHY so many women were not staying pregnant for the entire gestation – and it is as simple as malnutrition – regardless of how much they are eating – all about quality and also the ability of your gut to actually process what you eat.

3 – Increase the circulation to the local area

This is where the sacral moxa fan work and the massage afterwards is brilliant

How to light a moxa stick and what to do with it.

A moxa stick can be purchased from all good acupuncturists or Chinese herbal suppliers. You will receive two if you buy the hard copy of the ‘What Dads Can Do’ package.

4 – Stop all fetal monitoring as it CAUSES the problem

Please be respectful of your body and its process.
If there has been a worry about fetal growth – do something other than ‘medically monitor’ – fix it. Look to all I have written in the Pregnancy App, the sites I direct you to, the research that has already been done and is also in the resources I freely have on this and my other sites.
