CRYSTALS FOR PREGNANCY

 

Let’s jump right in and talk about what crystals I tried and recommend for pregnancy.

17 Essential Crystals For Pregnancy

 

1.  Black Tourlamine

Why I love black Tourlamine for pregnancy:

Black Tourlamine is known as a grounding and protection crystal.

It not only helps you feel more grounded and focused, but it also provides unsurpassed protection from toxic energies.

I kept this crystal with me during my first trimester because I was dealing with serious fatigue and morning sickness.

I had no energy left to deal with toxic energy stealing co-workers or family members.

Have a toxic mother-in-law?

You are not alone!

Black Tourlamine provided me the grounding and protection to not allow my MIL to get to me.

It helped me embrace positive energy and positive thoughts.

This would be the first crystal I would get and carry everywhere with me during pregnancy.

 

 

2. Moonstone

Why I love Moonstone for pregnancy:

Moonstone is beloved for its feminine energy and protective properties.

It can help you reduce feelings of stress, tension, anxiety, and pregnancy fatigue.

It can be beneficial to keep moonstone close to you during your first trimester when your hormones are in flux.

You may want a rainbow moonstone pregnancy crystal to keep close by you.

 

 

 

3. Lapis Lazuli

Why I love Lapis Lazuli for pregnancy:

Lapis Lazuli is known as the pregnancy crystal.

You may find this crystal helpful in handling the everyday stresses of pregnancy.

I had a very difficult pregnancy and I found that Lapis Lazuli helped me to deal with the emotional stress of being on bed rest for months.

 

 

4. Smokey quartz

Why I love Smokey Quartz for pregnancy:

Smokey quartz is the perfect crystal for grounding and centering yourself during pregnancy.

As your pregnancy progresses it can feel very busy with doctor’s appointments, decorating the nursery, and baby showers.

Smoky quartz can help stabilize your energy and keep negative emotions and feelings away.

 

 

5. Rose Quartz

Why I love Rose quartz for pregnancy:

Rose quartz is the crystal of love.

Many believe it can help increase the mother-baby bond right after childbirth.

 

 

 

 

6. Malachite

Why I love Malachite for pregnancy:

Malachite is sometimes called the “midwife’s crystal”.

Many believe it protects mothers during childbirth and helps heal past traumatic birth experiences.

 

 

7. Citrine

Why I love citrine for pregnancy:

Citrine with its yellow-orange color holds the power of happiness, joy, and positivity.

It is easy during the trials of pregnancy, especially during the first and third trimesters to feel tired, sore, and grumpy.

Citrine helps absorb these negative energies and restores your feelings of happiness with your pregnancy.

If you are in the process of developing your birth plan, Citrine can help you feel more confident in your decisions and personal choices surrounding the upcoming labor and delivery of your baby.

 

 

8. Labradorite

Why I love labradorite for pregnancy:

Helps you stay focused on yourself and your baby during your pregnancy, labor, and delivery.

It helps to block out the negative or intrusive opinions of those around you.

11.  Tigers eye

Why I love Tiger’s Eye for pregnancy:

Tiger’s eye is known as a balancing stone.

During the postpartum recovery period, you may find yourself struggling to find balance as a new mom.

I know I struggled with finding my footing as a new mom.

There was an endless amount to learn, constant unsolicited advice, and sleep deprivation like I never knew was possible.

Sometimes just lying down with a tiger eye for a few moments is enough to help me re-center and keep going.

 

 

12. Lepidolite

Why I love Lepidolite for pregnancy:

Lepidolite is known for being a mood improver, encouraging you to have positive emotions and lowering your anxiety.

 

 

13.  Garnet

Why I love Garnet for pregnancy:

Garnet is my birthstone.

I think you should always wear your own birthstone during pregnancy and as you transition to new motherhood.

It feels protective and comforting.

Garnet is a protection stone with strong vibrational energy.

It is the stone of Capricorns, the goat, strong and level-headed.

I don’t think you can go wrong with choosing to carry a garnet stone during pregnancy.

 

 

14.  Hematite

Why I love Hematite for pregnancy:

Hematite is a healing stone.

You may want to have a Hematite crystal in your postpartum recovery kit.

When I would take warm baths with Epsom salt after birth I would place hematite and scented candle near me in the bathroom.

Epsom salt baths will be a life-saver during your postpartum period.

 

 

15.  Carnelian

Why I love Carnelian for pregnancy:

Carnelian is often called the warrior crystal.

This is an important crystal to keep close to you as you prepare for labor and delivery.

Carnelian stokes the fire of courage and confidence from deep within you.

Both of which you’ll need as you transition into motherhood during your postpartum recovery.

Wearing Carnelian can help you feel more empowered as a woman and mother.

 

 

16. Angelite

Why I love Angelite for pregnancy:

Angelite helps to soothe and calm you.

Take a warm bath before bed and place Angelite and a scented candle in the bathroom with you.

You will be relaxed and have an easier time falling asleep.

Getting enough sleep is critical to a healthy pregnancy.

Take naps during the day if you are feeling fatigued.

You may find that a pregnancy pillow helps relieve your pregnancy aches and pains.

 

 

17. Aventurine

Why I love Aventurine for pregnancy:

Keep aventurine close during your postpartum recovery.

Aventurine is a crystal used for speed in healing.

Rest, stay hydrated, eat nutritiously full foods and keep aventurine in your pocket for its healing energies.

If you have postpartum anxiety you may find that a weighted blanket helps you rest more easily.
