Earthing & Pregnancy

Practicing Earthing has been known to benefit women throughout their pregnancy. In fact, those who practice Earthing are more likely to get pregnant to begin with. Women who practice Earthing on a regular basis have hormonal levels that seem to normalize. "[Grounding may have] great potential for the fertility industry" says Russell Whitten, a chiropractor in Santa Barbara, California. He's also had several cases in his own practice where his patients became pregnant after a month of beginning a lifestyle of Earthing. Some of these patients had not had babies for years and others were unable to get pregnant at all up to that point in their lives.

Grounding helps lower stress levels and balance hormones so the mother is less emotional during pregnancy. Earthing while pregnant gives you rejuvenating energy and a sense of emotional and physical stability. Women who are Grounded throughout their pregnancy tend to have more energy to work out and consequently end up having a faster and more efficient labour and delivery. Pregnant women who practice Earthing also sleep better and suffer less pain and inflammation. Some women, who when pregnant, usually sleep with a pillow between their hips, say they no longer have to do so to be comfortable when sleeping Grounded.

Most pregnant women who have discovered the power of Earthing, continue on with the Grounding lifestyle after they have had their baby. They can't imagine going back to sleeping or walking around not Grounded. So once baby is born, they say goodbye to postpartum depression and continue enjoying better sleep, less pain and more energy to help keep the focus on baby since they are feeling their best.

At The Earthing Store we have several cute and stylish Earthing shoes that will help you keep Grounded during the day and Earthing sheets and bedding to keep you sleeping Grounded during the night. Our shoes and sheets are like none other on Earth. They'll keep you looking and feeling your best so you can enjoy your pregnancy and take care of yourself and your precious little bundle.

I just found out I’m pregnant (I’m 5 weeks). I wore a grounding bracelet, and fell asleep. I awoke suddenly with a burning sensation on my ring finger. My skin under my wedding ring got slightly burned (1st degree burn, feels like a sunburn). I regularly use grounding wires, but this is the first time this has happened to me. I’m just a little worried about the baby. Anyone else have this happen to them?

Thanks for your thoughts.

As a reiki healer I thought grounding was a spiritual practice until I watched Earthing. I was pregnant last year and very upset that I had no grass around my apartment. I only had carparks and roads to walk on. I had a miscarriage and moved to a condo with gardens and grass. I started grounding and became pregnant again. I love waking early to ground every morning. I ask mama earth to fill me with her goodness and remove my anxiety. I’m sleeping better and have less symptoms then in my last pregnancy. I will definately ground when my baby arrives. Thanks

I have just discovered grounding/earthing. As a community midwife in the UK I see many pregnant ladies with pelvic pain, sleep discomfort; ladies anxious to go into labour. It occurred to me that earthing would help these ladies/babies tremendously!!! I will definitely be recommending your website and earthing as a daily prescription. Thank you so much for your shared knowledge.
