Pregnant women and Thai beliefs

Young coconut water

Drinking young coconut water will make your child's skin look good. Miss Catarin Piyawatwong (A Dietician from Rama 9 hospital) said "there is no research to prove that but some research has proved that it make the womb squeeze and placenta will be cleaned"

Sleeping on your back

if you sleep on your back the placenta will stick to your back. Darapong Langkafa (Obstetrician gynaecologist) said "the placenta is in womb and could never stick on your back but sleeping on your back can make your blood pressure go down as pressure may be put on a large vein and this sometimes can put mother and baby in danger. It is better sleep on the left side "

Funeral

Don’t go to a funeral. Devils, demons and ghost will try to get in you or replace your baby with their life force. Penporn Somsriri the head of preparing mothers for delivery said pregnant women should not be worry. Maybe that is the reason why we should not go to funeral (so they do not worry or feel sad).

Don’t eat banana

Eating bananas will make your baby get bigger than he should be. Then it will be very hard and painful to give birth. This is true because banana is full of carbohydrate. Also because the mother will not want to eat anything else , she may lack proper nutrition and have constipation.

Don’t eat shell or oyster

It will be very hard for you to give birth to your baby as oysters meat will make your baby stick inside you just like an oyster will stick to its shell. Also your baby will not smell nice (like an oyster). It is not true , but there is a lot of fat in oyster that will not be good for mother (especially if she is already fat).

Vine

Don’t eat any vegetables like vines or it will make your legs pain. it is true there are some research proved that in these vegetables are full of "purin" but if you try and you don’t feel any pain you should have it as it will be good for your excretory system

Showering after sun dawn

It will make you get additional amniotic fluid during your pregnancy . There is no research found that supports this but it is not right for your life clock to shower this early. You will get sick easily.

Your tummy shape will tell your baby's gender

A round tummy will get a girl. It is a trick to make mother keep watching her tummy and pay attention to her baby then she maybe see something unusual and go to see the doctor on time

sitting on the stair and door sill

Pregnant women who sit on the stair and door sill will make you get injured while giving birth or even die as the ghosts which protect stairs and door will get angry. The fact is elder don’t want you to sit there and fall down.

There are others beliefs about pregnant women and giving birth .....if I do not feel too lazy I will put something more on about this.

....cannot eat some kind of food,cannot go to temple,cannot have sex.....!?!?!?

--Sorry I put this lesson on so late....we went to Korat (Wang naam keaw) with friends last weekend.

Haha, I love some of these. My wife heard something about the coconut water...saying that it was believed it could lead to a premature birth.

Of course I laughed and bought her some coconut water.

I want to hear more from Aomlovely about her pregnancy beliefs...she was telling my father some good ones when he was visiting :)

Thanks Fay!
