A healthy pregnancy relies on the state of mental, physical, and emotional temperament. It is just like soil and atmospheric conditions decide germination and growth of seed implanted within. Similarly, the mother's body, mind, and emotions all directly affect the fetus. Her positive state facilitates the good growth of the baby - a healthy baby with a healthy mind and strong body. And her negative state directly impacts the fetus's mind and body.
Any changes felt during the entire pregnancy, or we can say any symptoms felt during conception, can be managed appropriately with simple measures if very mild.

Pregnancy is undoubtedly a long period that comprises a long list of biological changes in the body of the expectant mother. We also witness inevitable mood swings occurring in women, which, if mild, is fine, but if they are intense, then need to be helped. To help cure such mood swings, there is no other treatment modality than homeopathy, which is best suited to the patient. There can be anxiety, depression, fear, and sometimes unexplainable irritation and anger. Besides these, there can be insomnia, excessive fatigue, tiredness, disinterest, etc. In all such issues, homeopathy can offer various treatment potentialities.
