lunar eclipse is regarded as a bad omen by many cultures of the world and India is not an exception to that. Scientifically, there has been no evidence to prove that eclipse can be harmful during pregnancy, but many consider it as a bad omen for pregnant women. The superstitions also go to the extent of asserting that moving out during the eclipse or watching it may cause one to give birth to a deformed baby. Therefore, the pregnant women are not allowed to leave their rooms during the eclipse and the curtains are drawn so that the Moon does not pose a threat. Absurd, right? Well, it is totally up to you whether you want to believe or not. But, when it comes to the welfare of the child, mothers leave no stones unturned to ensure that.
