This answer is known by the position of the fifth house of one’s chart which signifies children. If the 5 th house and its lord are placed well in the horoscope, and the house has auspicious planets in it, there are no obstacles at all in having children. As a rule, always, both the individual horoscopes of the couple need to be checked for making decisions about having a child.
Jupiter is the karak for children. When this auspicious planet transits from 1st, 9th or 11th house, then the 5th house comes into a favourable position due to its dristi or gaze. This timing of Jupiter’s movement is auspicious for planning a child, and the timeline can be told by the astrologer
What are the guidelines for healthy and safe pregnancy? Vedic astrology recommends all the ancient practices of garbh sanskar to be followed, for a health Mother to deliver a healthy child. The mother should take sattvic food, perform meditation and simple asanas, and be mentally cheerful. She should do namajapa and read stories from epics and puranas to pass on the pure vibrations to the child in the womb. Planets also if placed in good degree and inauspicious nakshatras like Rohini, Swati and Dhanishta, give a smooth experience in pregnancy.
