The third trimester, from week 27 until birth, is the final phase of pregnancy, characterized by significant fetal growth, with the baby gaining weight and maturing in preparation for delivery. Expectant mothers often experience physical discomforts like backache, swelling, and heartburn, along with mixed emotions of excitement and anxiety. Regular prenatal check-ups become more frequent to monitor the health of the mother and baby, and discussions about the birth plan and signs of labour are essential. This period also involves final preparations for childbirth and the baby’s arrival, along with vigilant monitoring for any potential complications such as preterm labour or preeclampsia. The third trimester is a time of anticipation and readiness as the due date approaches.


Garbha Samvad

Sounds from outside the mother’s body can also be heard. Whatever you are telling the baby, making the baby listen or experiencing is going towards making the baby a divine being. Avoid things which cause stress, relationship problems were the main cause of stress.

Do Prarthana

  • Prarthana means prayer, Seek blessings upon the unborn baby. It draws the universe’s positive energies to the baby.
  • Print some prayer and paste on the walls – read them aloud during the day.

Talk to your baby

  • Sit in a calm place, talk to the baby – tell how your day was, what you did, any interesting thing that happened, what you ate, how those vitamins and minerals will benefit your baby. 
  • You can even narrate a story that inculcates good values.

Listen to classical music

Garbh Sanskar music varies from state to state in India, but it’s usually instrumental with vocals only as an accompaniment or vocal-instrumental compositions. Classical music is the best choice since its range of notes and their repetition creates a soothing effect.

  • Any light and gentle tones. Avoid harsh and loud music.
  • Can even change your phone’s ringtone to a Garbh Sanskar tune.
  • Both parents talk to each other about the baby.

Listen to Raagas

  • During month 7, it is advised to listen to Komal Asavari as it elevates the mood and increases Endorphins. It is most suitable to do it in the morning time.
  • In month 8, shift to Bairagi. It increases circulation and energizes you. the best suited time is in the morning. 
  • In month 9, explore Jaunpuri as it increases courage and confidence and thus, helps in labour. Most suitable time for the same is in late mornings.
