Pregnancy expert: ‘I’d recommended pregnancy yoga to Kate Middleton’
A pregnancy expert has said that she would recommend pregnancy yoga to the Duchess of Cambridge, who is currently expecting a baby.
Interviewed by Hello Online, Heidi Murkoff called the activity “great” and said that she would “definitely recommend” it to the mother-to-be.
The author also said that aqua aerobics and swimming were good forms of exercise for women to do when they’re pregnant.
“It's basically your only opportunity to be weightless and when you're pregnant that's a relief,” the What To Expect when You’re Expecting scribe said.
It would relieve pressure where swollen areas are concerned and play a part in minimizing swelling, she suggested.
“When it comes to choosing what kind of exercise you should due during your pregnancy, that's the kind of decision that's made by the mother-to-be and her doctor or her midwife because every case is different, there are so many variables,” she advised.
Keeping fit when pregnant has a lot of benefits, she suggested, adding that a lot of women don’t know that it is believed that keeping fit in this time can improve the brain power of the baby.
She added that mums who do exercise while pregnant have a greater chance of having a baby whose weight is healthier.
“Of course this releases endorphins too and they can boost your mood and paradoxically give you more energy," she added.
Kate, who is of course married to Prince William, is due to give birth later this year, in July. Her pregnancy was announced late last year, in December.
The couple married in April 2011 in a much-watched Westminster Abbey ceremony.
Should the weather be warm come July, the pregnant duchess will experience more swelling which might become uncomfortable, according to Ms Murkoff.
When you are pregnant, you have higher metabolism she explained, “so you're heating for two as well as eating for two so it's harder to stay cool.”
She advised against exercising outside in very hot weather when pregnant and recommended keeping “out of the sun”.
- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?Thank you Emiliano for your comment. In this blog we are referring more to oils, more so than butters and while we agree with you Shea is an excellent emollient for hair, it's consistency is more buttery and it is used more as a leave-in remedy to smooth hair texture. We have suggested Coconut oil as it helps slow down hair loss by penetrating deep into your hair shaft to prevent protein loss, which in turn prevents breakage. When applied to your scalp, it simultaneously moisturises and removes build-up around your hair follicles to encourage hair growth and is one of base oils always used in Ayurveda for hair treatments. As this post is more focused for hair and not for skin, the comedogenic scale applies to skin/pores and not hair follicles. Thank you again for your feedback.
- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?Hello Zu, yes hair loss can be very stressful and this in turn amplifies the cause almost.. Perhaps with Covid, your system may have been depleted of nutrients and fighting the virus can take its toll on your immune system, so sometimes our hair and skin suffer when we have been ill. We really believe in oils for scalp massage as the best way to revive the growth and help regenerate the follicles. It may be also worth at looking at internal supplements and making sure you are getting enough of omega oils, perhaps plant based such as nuts and seeds in your diet. For external oil treatment, would recommend the Really Good Hair oil which we create with Brahmi, this herb is known to help bring the scalp back to health and improve growth. Biotin is also a good vitamin to take as a supplement to help with hair growth so do look into that. So hope these tips will be helpful for you.
- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?I, am very surprised that your article did not include Organic Shea Butter and that coconut oil, is your number one choice for hair growth and thickness. According to the comedogenic scale, coconut oil, has a rating of (4), on a scale from (0), to (5), on clogging your pores. Why would anyone put coconut oil, on their hair or skin knowing the pores will get clogged up. Shea Butter, on the other hand has a (0), rating on the comedogenic scale, which is great for dry hair and skin and won't clog up your pores.
- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?Thank you for your very informative article. I suffered COVID in December, 2020, and in February I started experience extreme hair loss and all my hair jus falls like a person who is under going Chemo therapy. It's very depressing. Had to cut off all my hair and even the little that is left is falling off daily not sure what to do. Please suggest something.
- Carrot Oil for Face Hello :) You can use carrot oil only in small drops on your skin in the morning/during the day since it is highly potent. Carrot oil is rich in vitamins and is a very effective moisturiser. You can also mix a few drops of Carrot Oil with your favorite face cream. You can do that at least twice a week or include it in your daily skincare routine. Hope this helps.
- Carrot Oil for Face Can I use the carrot oil in the day time? Because I am using Vitamin c serum in the night. Please advise. Thanks
