In India this will be visible as “Pracchaya Chandra Grahan”. In 2012, this is the second lunar eclipse which occurs on November 28.

Pregnanat women should take special care during chandra grahan. As per Hindu tradition, it is best to remain indoors and avoid seeing the grahan at any cost. Kusha or Darba grass is kept with the pregnant woman . Even though people observe fast during grahan, it is not applicable for a pregnant woman. However they are advised to take a bath after the grahan. Also women can recite some mantras to protect the well being of the child.

Maha Mrutyunjay Mantra : This is considered one of the greatest mantras and would protect the mother and the child from all the ill effects of the grahan

Om tryambakam yaja mahe sugandhim pushti vardhanam
oorvaru kamiva bandhanath mrutyor mukshiyamaamruthaath

Santana Gopala Mantra : This mantra is dedicated to Lord Krishna and is chanted for an easy and safe pregnancy and to get a healthy child. It is advisable to chant this mantra during grahan.

Om Devaki Sudha Govinda Vasudeva Jagath pathe
Dehimay Thanayam Krishna Thwameham Saranamgathe
Kadhahaa Deva Deva Jagannatha Gothra Vridhi Karap Prabho
Dehimey Thanayam Sheegram Ayushmantham Yashashreenam
