Harmful Impacts of Lunar Eclipse on Pregnant women

During a lunar eclipse, expecting mothers are asked to stay indoors and not to look up at the sky. It is believed that doing the opposite can expose them to harmful rays and that can be damaging to their foetus.

Pregnant women are also suggested to not eat or drink anything during Chandra Grahan. However, we do not second that opinion. Pregnant women should keep themselves hydrated at any cost otherwise they complications would start to occur.

Moreover, expecting mothers are asked not to touch or keep any sharp objects in their hands during the lunar eclipse as it is believed that those who do the opposite deliver children with a cleft organ.

They are also asked not to wear any hairpins and cover the windows of their houses with dark curtains to prevent the rays from entering the house.
