Pregnancy period is one of the most beautiful time spans of a woman’s life. This is the time when a woman’s body procreates another life, nourishes it within her own body for about three quarters of an entire year. Even though these nine months of gestation are bestowed with some of the most adorable moments, however, the entire journey is quite the curly ride. A woman’s body and mind go through a series of changes that require specific attention. Sometimes these changes come with certain complications like body ache, severe bloating, backaches, swollen feet and hand, disrupted blood circulation, nausea, headache, etc. Managing these symptoms and complications require utmost care and attention.
