hello...I want to know that during pregnancy elders say that a pregnant lady should not go out at night.
I want to know whats the logic behind this..is it a myth or is there any reason which i dont know or understand..

i asked my nani the same question..its just that at night there are insects and animals roaming around..as during olden days at night there were no street lights so in dark if u bang with something that would hurt you..its just for our safety nothing else...😊😊

Reshma Nagrani

oh.....thanks for clearing my misconception.abut it ...as nani s cannot be wrong ☺


I dont think the same is followed now. I went out at nights for walks all the time. It may be for olden days when darker time wasnt too safe. as Mansi Shah Dave said

when I was 7 months pregnant I went for night out.. I almost roamed entire Bangalore with my hubby .. it's just a myth .. don follow such things.. try to enjoy each n every moment with ur loved ones.. once baby arrives u ll not ve time for yourselves..


The logic is one can catch evil spirit 😜 with that one should not use perfume and go with open hair. I was too advised the same by my MIL.
There is no scientific logics in all this.But if you believe you can follow it, it won't do any harm either.And if you don't believe in all this, do as you wish.
and If you want to balance it out, simply carry the pic/locket of God or something divine with u when u go outside.
So, you see we have so many options to choose from 😆 Happy Motherhood Ride !
