Touching a pregnant woman’s belly is the way one can feel a connection with the baby.
At least this is what we all believe.
While a mother can feel the baby inside her, the father and the close relatives can only feel the baby by touching the mother’s belly. But it is always better to ask for permission.
But what if a stranger comes and touches the mother belly without even seeking her permission? Of course, the mother will not feel great. This situation can make some women really violated and hurt.
So to let you know why it can be offending to pregnant women for you to touch their belly, we have listed a few points.
1.Violation of their personal space
A pregnant woman’s belly is still a part of her body. No matter if you are a woman or a man, it can still be offending to her.
Touching a woman’s body without her permission can be entering her personal space and violating it. Do not make this mistake, always seek her permission.
The woman may start thinking her body has become a property for the public which can cause mental extortion and stress. This can also be termed as harassment.
2.It may make the mother-to-be self-conscious
When a woman gets pregnant, it is natural that she gets bigger in size. The touching of the belly can make her feel she is fat, unattractive and ugly.
This is probably the last thing you would ever want to make a woman feel like. Hence, do not touch their bellies.
3.It can affect their physical and mental health
Touching a pregnant woman’s belly can get the woman and her child in contact with germs which can get her and the baby very sick.
4.You can’t feel the baby’s kick
In the movies, they may feel the kick from the outside, but the truth is that you cannot. The child kicks on its own, not with the touch of an outsider.
