We need to look more closely at how Chinese herbs interact with one another in order to comprehend how these prescriptions function. Each herb has a unique role or collection of functions to maintain the internal body environment’s harmony and balance, according to the fundamental principles of TCM. To guarantee a smooth pregnancy, it’s essential to maintain a balance between the blood and energy flow throughout the process.

A TCM physician creates a prescription by combining individual herbs or combinations of herbs. Each TCM herbal prescription is personalized for the patient. As a result, not every formulation is appropriate for everyone. It is prescribed based on the unique set of symptoms that each patient presents. For instance, in TCM, herbs with cooling characteristics are employed if a patient has a fever. TCM includes treatments for various problems that may emerge during pregnancy, even though it places an emphasis on preventing complications through preparing for pregnancy week.

The herbs in the prescription assist in restoring the body’s internal harmony and condition and also work to relieve various pregnancy-related side effects like nausea and dizziness. Therefore, it is crucial for worried mothers to comprehend the underlying concepts of the herbs before deciding to use them as medication, food, a tonic, or as suggested by old wives’ tales. However, if herbs are used improperly, side effects like miscarriages, induced abortions, or harm to the fetus may happen.

As per the study by the Mayo Clinic, around the 20th week of pregnancy, the foetus response to sound occurs, and by the time it is born, the fetus’s eyes, ears, and other senses have developed. This gives the foetus a deep feeling of the rich information and the physiological and psychological changes that are occurring in the pregnant woman, especially the changes to the senses of touch and hearing, which are the physiological foundation of foetal education. In actuality, foetal education is a type of culture technique used in the foetal nervous system’s development.

According to contemporary medical theory, this effect is finalised by the foetal nervous system. The human nervous system and brain develop primarily during the period of growth, particularly during the foetal and infant periods. Since the 10th week of pregnancy, the foetal pressure sense and touch receptors have developed and started to function. Specialised care for pregnant women and postpartum recovery has been encouraged by traditional Chinese medicine. Because it provides women with a drug-free alternative to typical pregnancy-related symptoms, this care is now becoming more and more popular in addition to being effective.
