For a girl who dreams of giving birth, stroking a pregnant belly is believed to bring good luck

Pregnancy is a very special period in a woman's life, and accordingly, she treats her belly with special trepidation. Meanwhile, the more people want to touch it, the more noticeable the belly becomes. Folk beliefs suggest that in some cases, it can be beneficial.

OBOZREVATEL inquired about superstitions related to pregnancy and tells you when you can touch a woman's belly and when it should not be done in any case.

A woman who has been struggling to get pregnant herself for a long time may stroke the pregnant woman's belly. This is believed to bring her good luck on her way to her desired child. While touching, one should wish the unborn baby only the best. If the child kicks the hand of the woman stroking the belly, it is believed to signify not only success but also an impending pregnancy.

Another variant of this belief suggests that a woman who wants to get pregnant should sit in the place where the expectant mother has just sat. Most likely, her child will then be of the same sex as the woman who "shared" the seat with her.

However, it is forbidden to touch a pregnant woman's belly unless she wants you to. Therefore, before stroking her belly, you should always ask for her consent. Otherwise, the person touching her may face consequences for their actions in the form of failures and problems.
