Can someone tell me what are the rituals to be followed by a brahmin when the wife is pregnant?
I've heard that we should not cut hair and shave?
Is it only shave or haircut also? Should both be abstained? But why it should be abstained when wife is pregnant? Are trimming nails also forbidden?
(I also understand that, when a relation passes away, the person performing the last rites of the departed soul also do not shave the beard? Why is that and what is the reason for this mentioned in our shastra and scriptures)
Also, if anyone can thrown in other points that the husband must not do while wife is pregnant?
