Bienvenido al primer post en mi serie 10 Días de ganchillo de la Salud. Voy a patear fuera hablando de ganchillo a través de los problemas relacionados con el embarazo. En mi investigación para Crochet Saved My Life Aprendí acerca de cómo las mujeres estaban usando ganchillo para hacer frente a la ansiedad durante el embarazo, el manejo del dolor durante el tercer trimestre, e incluso en la sala de partos y también la depresión post-parto. Crochet puede ser una herramienta de sanación para cada uno de estos periodos en un embarazo difícil.

A través de la labor de ganchillo Embarazo Ansiedad

Es natural sentir ansiedad durante cualquier embarazo. Uno se pregunta si todo va a ir bien. Si es su primer embarazo, usted puede estar preocupado por lo que va a suceder a su cuerpo en los próximos meses. Durante cualquier embarazo, usted puede preocuparse de los posibles riesgos y problemas que el bebé pueda encontrar. Esta preocupación puede aumentar fácilmente a la ansiedad en toda regla si el embarazo llega a ser un año difícil, especially if it requires third trimester bedrest. Many women find that crocheting through the bedrest period is healing.

De hecho, some hospitals even have knit and crochet programs for pregnant women on bedrest in the hospital. La 2006 article in a medical journal talks about Alta Bates Summit Medical Center in Northern California, a program that revealed that neeedlecrafts reduced both stress and pain in the women who participated in the program.

Crocheting helped reduced stress in a few different ways:

  • Instead of sitting in bed excessively worrying about their baby’s medical issues, they could engage in the meditative act of crochet. The repetitiveness of the craft is very relaxing and helps bring the body into a calmer state.
  • Many mothers felt disconnected from their babies and this heightened their stress levels. By crocheting something for the baby, they could begin to feel more connected to the life growing inside of them and this often induced relaxation.
  • The women who were all on the ward together felt more comfortable talking to each other when they were also crocheting. Just sitting in a group and talking was uncomfortable and awkward but with the shared craft of crochet in the room the women relaxed. This eventually enabled them to talk openly about their fears and anxieties surrounding the pregnancy and then they would see that other women were going through the same thing and this decreased the mystery around the stress.
High stress levels and anxiety can make an already-difficult pregnancy even more difficult. It is important for the mother to find ways to remain calm, which can be difficult if she is stuck in bed all day for weeks and weeks. Crochet can be a powerful tool to help with this.

Crochet for Pain Management

The program at Alta Bates also revealed that women could use crochet to deal with pregnancy-related pain. Pain management is a topic I cover at length in the new book because crochet not only helps distract the mind from pain but may also produce a physical response in the body that actually reduces pain. It can be especially useful in cases, like pregnancy, where the patient does not want to take medication to manage pain. (En el caso de embarazo esto es debido a una preocupación por la forma en que el medicamento podría afectar al bebé.)

Crochet trabaja en primer lugar para el tratamiento del dolor, ya que sirve como una distracción del dolor. Si usted puede conseguir su mente de que el dolor en su cuerpo, entonces se reduce efectivamente la sensación del dolor a pesar de la sensación física no ha cambiado. Una de las mujeres que entrevisté para el libro era de Kristine Embajador de ganchillo que utilizó crochet para ayudarla con tanto la angustia y de la gestión del dolor durante el parto. Compartió:

“Con mi último embarazo, ya que mi fecha de vencimiento se acercaba, Me encontré a mí mismo cada vez más ansioso. Después de tener varios partos complicados en una fila (mi quinta fue entregado no respira con distocia de hombro), Yo estaba en gran temor de lo que ocurriría en esta ocasión. It got so bad that it was all I could think about. Y, por supuesto,, the more I thought about it, the more worried I became. During one of my last OB appointments, my doctor said to try to bring something in the delivery room that would put my focus on something other than childbirth, y tal vez eso ayudaría. Inmediatamente decidí traer un proyecto de ganchillo. It definitely helped take my mind off of the pain.”

Crochet may be more than just a distraction from pain, aunque. The act of crochet likely produces serotonin. One of the functions of serotonin in the body is that it’s an analgesic, or a natural painkiller. Fundamentalmente, if you can increase your serotonin levels then you can increase your pain threshold and crochet is one possible way to boost serotonin.

Crocheting to Cope with Post-Partum Depression

Once the baby has finally come you might expect everything to be hunky-dory but that’s often not the case. Even in an ideal situation a new mother is exhausted and stressed out (and may still use crochet to help calm her during this time!) Sometimes this can lead to post-partum depression, a true and serious period of clinical depression that goes beyond justthe baby bluesand can make even getting out of bed seem like a daunting, miserable prospect.

Because my own experience of healing with crochet was healing through depression I devoted a large chunk of the book to this topic and there is a lot of information in there about why crochet helps with depression of any kind. I had the opportunity to interview Rachel from Quizás Matilda que compartió conmigo cómo crochet ayudó a llevarla a través de la depresión post-parto. Compartió:

“PPD me hizo sentir terriblemente ansioso, nervioso, no puede enfocar, y preocupado, pero crochet era tan reconfortante y tranquilizador. Yo sólo podía sentarse y concentrarse completamente en los puntos de sutura en mis manos y olvidarse de lo mal que me sentí el resto del tiempo. Era algo tan simple y ordinaria, y yo no estaba creando algo grande o impresionante, pero ayudó a reducir mi ansiedad y me permitió relajarme, por primera vez desde el nacimiento de mi hijo. Incluso con él llorando en el fondo, Yo podría sentarme con mi trabajo de ganchillo y sentir un poco de paz y tranquilidad. No podía obsesionarse con mis propios pensamientos y sentimientos cuando yo estaba concentrado en el trabajo en mis manos. "

I found in my research that many women may have used needlework to get through post-partum depression in the 1950s and 1960s before the condition had a name or was recognized as a real problem. These women didn’t have books and blogs to tell them that crochet could help but they had their friends and their instincts and discovered this same truth on their own.
