Vastu Tips For Pregnancy/Conceiving

Motherhood marks a new beginning in the life of a couple and is, without doubt, the best gift that God has given to women. The pregnancy of a married woman is celebrated by each and every family member, friend, and colleague and also by distant relatives.

Repercussions of Vastu Defects on Pregnancy/Conceiving a Baby

There have been many instances when “pregnancy” spells trouble for the woman and family; some of the examples are

  1. Premature birth or delivery of child
  2. The woman is unable to conceive
  3. Miscarriage, one after another

and many more.

Often such families – unsurprisingly – approach various hospitals, doctors and religious places, praying to doctors, God and everyone else for a child, but nothing ever happens. All the medical reports come normal and doctors say that there’s no complication, the baby must be around the corner. But time flies and finally nothing happens; the baby that the family wanted so badly never came.

What’s the cause of such misery? Why is a family deprived of the happiness that a child can bring in their life? Can it be a vastu dosh that’s being a spoil sport? The answer is “Yes”; if there are certain vastu doshas (that we’ve described below) in a home, then those vastu doshas (defects) will never allow the lady of the family to get pregnant or conceive a child.

But before we begin understanding the vastu defects that prevent birth of a child in the family, we must understand the logic of elements (remember the five element – earth, water, fire, air and space) behind conceiving a child, maturing of the child in mother’s womb and finally the delivery of a “healthy” child.

Vastu-Tips-For-Pregnancy-ConceivingVastu for Pregnancy & 5 Basic Elements

I bet you know that the first step to getting pregnant is to have intercourse (sex) with your life partner. Now, for a moment, think about the element that’s responsible to excite a couple so much that they have an intercourse. Did you say “Fire element”? Yes, that’s correct. It’s the fire element that heats up the body and desires so much that a couple indulges in an intercourse.

But wait, the work of the fire element doesn’t ends here; creating enough desire for sex is just the first step; the same fire element is also responsible for conceiving and maturing the baby in a woman’s womb. That’s the reason why a hen sit’s on its eggs, providing the much needed warmth and heat. But definitely the intensity of the heat and warmth, while maturing a baby, is way different and less than the heat needed for mating.

Here, we must also tell you that as per vastu shastra, each and every corner of a home, is dominated or ruled by one of the elements; here’s how;

  1. North-East or “Eshan” corner is ruled by “Water” element.
  2. South-East or “Agni” corner is ruled by “Fire” element.
  3. South-West or “Nairitya” corner is ruled by “Earth” element.
  4. North-West or “Vayu” corner is ruled by “Air” element.
  5. and “Space” element rules the center of a home.

Based on above 5 facts, we’ve created lists of do’s and don’ts of vastu shastra when it comes to conceiving a child. Let’s have a look at don’ts first:

Vastu for Pregnancy – What to Avoid

  1. If a couple sleeps in NE bedroom, then the lady won’t be able to conceive a child; even if she conceives, the “water” element of NE won’t allow adequate heat to reach the fetus, resulting in miscarriage or abortion.
  2. Once a lady conceives a child, she must not stay in SE bedroom as too much amount of heat of SE corner either leads to miscarriage or premature birth.
  3. Make sure that there’s no staircase or anything heavy at the center of home as it leads to various complications in pregnancy.
  4. Never allow a pregnant woman to stay in dark, always make sure that there’s light around her.
  5. Don’t allow a pregnant lady to see anything depressing such as a gloomy or miserable movie, TV show etc.
  6. A pregnant lady must avoid wearing dark and drab colored clothes such as black, dark red etc.
  7. Never ever hurt feelings of a pregnant woman.
  8. Avoid paintings that depict negative feelings and moods such as war, violence, cruelty, grief etc.
  9. Avoid keeping bonsai and thorny plants in home.
  10. Never allow the pregnant lady to use a bathroom under a staircase or beam. In fact as per vastu shastra for toilets you must not have any bathroom under a staircase or beam.
  11. A pregnant woman must never sleep under a beam.
  12. Avoid – or minimize the use of – all electronic gadgets such as cell phones, TV, tablets, laptops etc. as they emit huge amounts of heat and electromagnetic radiation that leads to miscarriage.

Vastu for Pregnancy – What to Follow

  1. A married couple may sleep in the SE bedroom of a home, but as soon as the lady becomes pregnant, the couple must move to SW bedroom.
  2. An unmarried girl can occupy the NW bedroom in a home; this will make sure that she gets married at the best possible age and hence has better chances of enjoying motherhood at appropriate age.
  3. A pregnant woman must watch motivational movies, read good books and magazines etc.
  4. Wear light and cheerful colored clothes such as light blue, green, yellow, white etc. basically something bright and attractive.
  5. Hang paintings that are pleasant to mind and eyes such as a beautiful scenery or an awesome landscape.
  6. A pregnant lady must meditate during morning in NE room as beneficial UV rays are abundant in NE during morning time.
  7. Always keep fresh flowers and positive atmosphere at home.

We sincerely hope that you truly understand and are in a definite position to apply these vastu shastra principles of pregnancy in your life.

  • vaishnavi

    we are in apartment. our bedroom is located in north east. what can we do. we are trying for pregnancy

  • VastuShastraAdmin

    Hi Vaishnavi,

    Is there any other bedroom available in your apartment? Since how long have you been living in this house?


    • vaishnavi

      No, it’s single bedroom apartment. since 2 yrs. after getting marriage i changed to this apartment. But our living room is in northeast corner.

    • vaishnavi

      No, It’s single bedroom flat. we are in since 2 yrs.

  • VastuShastraAdmin

    Hi Vaishnavi,

    The bedroom is in NE or living room? Please send me the plan of your home for analysis.

    If the only bedroom in your home is in NE then at least try to sleep in SW corner of the bedroom with you head in South or West.

    My husband and I occupy a North-East bedroom on the first floor of the house. We live in a joint family and changing the room is not possible at all. Currently we sleep with our head to the North-East. If we move the bed to the other side to keep head in South-West, we will have a window behind us, which will also be a vastu dosh. We want to conceive but are in a dilemma about these vastu issues. We also have a bathroom/toilet in the east corner. Please provide remedies!!!!

  • VastuShastraAdmin

    Hi RM,

    As you might have read in the very same article that the NE bedroom is the worst one for married couples.

    Also never sleep with your head towards North or NE. You can sleep with your head towards South or SW (Yes, it’s a vastu dosh to have a window there, but the ill effects are lesser than sleeping with head in NE).

    In this NE bedroom, try to sleep in the SW corner. There’s nothing much you can do as you said that you cannot change the room.

    Yes, one thing can be done, if you have elderly people in your home, they can occupy this room and you can occupy theirs.

    Please send me a sketch of your home for analysis.
