hello amma, i am 24 weeks and accidently saw the moon on a lunar eclipse from a car. I was just out for 5 seconds and got into the car immediately. I saw the partial eclipse but not the total lunar eclipse. Please help me?? Will this effect my unborn baby?? please help me...
The rays that emit during the eclipse will effect the child in the woomb.So it is not advisable to expose to these rays.During eclipse, it is advised to take rest well with in the house in a room where the rays will not enter.

This information comes from my own knowledge.
No scientific evidence that eclipse affects the baby in mothers womb. It is a common belief that expecting mothers should not go outside the house during the time of the eclipse.need not worry about it. Dr.Sindu
And I am not telling you as a rational, scientific person. I am a very superstitious woman. Even I do not like to be out at all during an eclipse. But having lived in a society for the past 26 years where people are excited to watch the eclipse, and pregnant women pay no heed to such things, I have seen that there are absolutely no ill effects upon either mom or baby.
So you can continue to be superstitious like me because we can't fight what we've been raised to believe. But please don't give another thought or worry to your baby. There will be no negative effects. Congratulations on your pregnancy and be happy only. If you find yourself worrying about this please laugh at yourself and your superstition. It is all we can do, realize our human fears and move beyond them.
Control what you can-- your diet, your movement, your words, the quality of your thoughts-- and know you are being a great mom to your baby already. No worries. Best wishes!
dont worry , their will be no problem.Scientifically there is no problem , but if you say about the traditions, you were there for few seconds so their will be no problem . but even if you are not convinced, go for ultrasound..
Astronomically speaking, when the sun, the moon and the earth are all in line, with the moon or the earth at the centre, a solar or lunar eclipse takes place respectively.
At the time of the eclipse, people bathe in the sacred rivers. They do charitable acts. They give cows, money and gold. The day after the eclipse they feed the poor, the Brahmins and the Sadhus. After the eclipse they clean their houses, vessels, etc., and take a bath before they start cooking.Pregnant women should not see the sun or the moon during the time of the eclipse. If they do the child born may have some kind of defect. He may be born deaf, dumb or blind. Householders are forbidden from sexual intercourse on the day of the eclipse, for the same reason.
At this time one should take great care in avoiding bleeding, scorpion stings, etc. These have disastrous results. Even an earthworm has a poisonous effect when it bites one during an eclipse.
