Reciting Surah Maryam and Surah Yusuf during pregnancy

Q: A pregnant woman is advised to recite Surah Maryam and Surah Yusuf. Please advise if this is bidah or is it authentic?

Also, please advise if anything else should be recited.

A: These practices are not done considering them to be acts of sunnah, but as an amal (treatment) to make the pregnancy easier.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
