Pregnancy is one of the most important phases of a woman’s life. To have a happy pregnancy she not only needs to remain stress-free, but also be surrounded with positive vibes. Here are some ways to decorate your room for a happy and healthy pregnancy.

Color Your Bedroom


During pregnancy one needs to relax a lot. And there can be no better place than the bedroom for this purpose. Color your bedroom with cool and soothing colors like, blue, green and lavender. The darker the hue, the more pronounced the effect is believed to be. Avoid using red color, because it tends to increase blood pressure and heart rate, which can be harmful for both the mother and the child.

Hang Adorable Baby Photos


During pregnancy, it is advisable to have good thoughts and being surrounded by adorable baby pictures can be really useful in keeping negativity at bay. Cover the walls of your bedroom with the posters and banners of a healthy baby. Try to put them on the front wall, so that whenever you sleep or wake-up, the sight of the pretty image brings a smile on your face.

Keep the Role Models Photo on Bedside


Every woman dreams and desires of her child becoming a famous person and attain certain qualities. So, keep the photograph of the person whom you want your child to be like. It can be the photograph of a film star, a cricketer, a celebrity or even your husband or any other family member.

Friendship with Flowers


Flowers not only spread the fragrance of love and relief, but also reduce tension. Seeing flowers at regular intervals may make you feel good. It may also overcome the feeling of pain and uneasiness. Use bright colored flowers.

Important Note : Avoid Painting


1 – It’s probably best that you don’t paint during pregnancy, especially during the first trimester, because it can expose you to certain chemicals which may cause neurological birth defects in your child. It may also increase the risk of miscarriage.
2 – And if you can’t avoid the desire to decorate your room yourself, then use a paint that is labeled low or zero VOC (volatile organic compounds). Wear a ventilation mask, gloves, long trousers, and a long-sleeved shirt to protect your skin. Don’t eat or drink where you paint. After you’ve finished painting, keep the windows open to let fumes escape. Also don’t sleep in a newly painted room.
