Pregnancy is the birth of a new life. And the cemetery is the end of life. These concepts are so opposite that a widespread opinion has arisen - pregnant women should not go to the cemetery. Indeed, is it possible and necessary for a woman who wears a new life to visit a place where other people, in fact, left theirs? To answer the question "Why?", You need to understand the reasons for this opinion and its various interpretations.
The Church says that all people, even pregnant women, can and should visit cemeteries and burial places. It is believed that people who do not forget their loved ones receive blessings from God. However, of course, this should be done only if there is a desire. Pregnant women are not advised to go to the cemetery if they are not feeling very well. Especially if it is an early pregnancy. But the church has no specific prohibitions on this score.
Perhaps the idea that pregnant women are not allowed to visit the cemetery is a simple superstition. However, we must not forget that during the funeral, a woman experiences a lot of negative emotions and strong stress, which can affect not only her health, but also the health of the baby. Any stress during pregnancy is the cause of possible future ailments and diseases. This is one of the reasons why pregnant women should not visit cemeteries. Of course, if a woman has a need to go to the funeral of a loved one, and she is ready to restrain her emotions, this is not prohibited.
The second reason why pregnant women are discouraged from visiting cemeteries and funerals is the well-established superstition associated with the existence of the human aura. She does not disappear immediately after his death, but only after a while. It is believed that until the moment of their disappearance, these auras are in cemeteries in the form of ethereal formations that are capable of influencing living objects, which is not always positive. The most susceptible to this influence are children, especially those who are not born. Therefore, pregnant women, and especially those who believe in magic and the afterlife, should beware of visits to burial sites or visits to funerals. It is also necessary to take into account the fact that during pregnancy, suspiciousness is greatly increased in women, as a result of which they themselves can set themselves up in a negative way.
