Nošenje u trudnoći

Nošenje u trudnoći veseli ne samo zdrave trudnice nego i djecu kojima treba blizina majke, pogotovo u mjesecima kada se mijenja cijeli njihov mali svijet.

Dolazak nove bebe stresan je za cijelu obitelj. Ponekad je nošenje jednostavno samo način da preživite dan, a ponekad je samo biranje između dva zla, npr. lakše je starije dijete nositi nego se natezati s njim po ulici da ga ne pregazi auto.

Na početku trudnoće, u prvom tromjesečju, nema nekog posebnog preporučljivog položaja niti nosiljke za nošenje. Možete nositi svoje dijete u čemu god želite osim u slučaju prevelike osjetljivosti: tada ćete naravno izbjegavati nošenje sprijeda.

! Ako Vam liječnik brani podizanje tereta nošenje čim prije svedite na minimum! Sa starijim djetetom možete se zbližavati i na druge načine a novu malu mrvicu vrlo brzo ćete nositi blizu srca.

Kako trudnoća napreduje, više nego ikada postajemo svjesne činjenice da naša tijela imaju svoja ograničenja, i da trudnoća pojedinim ženama nije nimalo blaženo stanje puno romantičnih stereotipa.

Više o nošenju na siguran način ovdje.

Osim liječnika slušajte i vlastito tijelo: radi vlastite sigurnosti i sigurnosti starijeg djeteta izbjegnite nošenje u one dane kada imate niži tlak nego inače, vrti Vam se, osjećate opću slabost i sl. (Toga će moguće biti sve više kako se trudnoća bliži kraju).

U trudnoći je najudobnije nositi u tkanoj marami. Jedan od najudobnijih vezova za nošenje u trudnoći je ovdje.

Ako ste višerotka i do sada se niste redovito bavili sa tjelesnim aktivnostima obratite pozornost na moguće skraćeni vrat maternice ili općenito oslabljeno dno zdjelice. Ako vam liječnik nije zabranio podizanje tereta onda možete nositi u vrlo kratkim razdobljima i postepeno ih povećavati dok Vam se tijelo navikava na novo opterećenje. 

Više o mehanici nošenja ovdje.

Pri kraju drugog i u trećem tromjesečju preporučljivo je nositi čim više na leđima i za kraća nošenja još uvijek udobno može biti nošenje na boku. Većini će već jako nedostajati nošenje sprijeda, ali to će brzo nadoknaditi kada mala mrvica izađe u svijet. Najudobnije je nositi na leđima u tkanoj marami u višeslojnim vezovima koji istovremeno pružaju podršku i trbuhu, ili pak raspoređuju težinu na trup, dajući time protutežu već velikom trudničkom trbuhu. Naravno možete nositi i u SSC-u s pojasom ispod ili iznad trbuha. Osobno mi je uvijek draže nositi čim više na leđima, s dobro stegnutim pojasom visoko na rebrima.

Sjetite se da aktivna trudnoća olakšava porod i ubrzava oporavak!

Babywearing during pregnancy brings joy not only to a healthy pregnant woman but also to her children. They need their mother’s closeness, especially in the months when their world is about to change. The arrival of a new baby is stressful for the whole family. Babywearing is sometimes simply a way to survive a rough day and other times it gives you a safer option than holding your toddler’s hand next to a busy road.

During the first trimester there are no restrictions when it comes to the type of carrier or carrying position. You can do anything you like as long as your stomach isn’t overly sensitive, in which case you should avoid carrying in the front.

If your doctor forbids you to lift heavy loads, you should minimise babywearing as soon as possible! There are other ways to bond with your older child and soon enough you will be carrying a newborn next to your heart.

As the pregnancy progresses, we are becoming increasingly aware of the limitations of our bodies and that pregnancy isn’t the overly romanticised state of bliss for most women.

Listen to both your doctor and your body. For your own safety and the safety of your older child, avoid babywearing on the days when your blood pressure is lower than usual or you feel weak or dizzy. Those days will tend to be more commonplace as the pregnancy nears its end.

If you’ve given birth more than once and haven’t been engaged in regular physical activity, be aware of a possibly shortened cervix or a weakened pelvic floor. If your doctor hasn’t forbidden you to lift heavy loads, you can still babywear over very short periods of time and increase the duration steadily in order to condition your body.

Remember, an active pregnancy makes the delivery and recovery much easier!

At the end of the second and during the third trimester it is recommended to babywear on your back or in the hip position if it feels comfortable. Most women will miss wearing in the front but they will make up for it quickly once their new bundle of joy arrives. The most comfortable options are multi-pass carries in a woven wrap that simultaneously support your stomach or spread the weight evenly over your torso, thus creating a counterweight for your large bump. You can also use an SSC with the waistbelt above or below your belly. I prefer wearing very high on the back, with the waistbelt placed firmly on my ribcage.

If you are careful and follow some useful tips, babywearing during a healthy pregnancy can be an activity that benefits you and your whole family. 😉
