Keys to a Healthy Pregnancy
Taking every precaution necessary during pregnancy can not only benefit an expectant mother's health but also the developing baby while in the womb. When certain steps are taken, feeling healthy and happy during the duration of a pregnancy can be achieved. By following these common-sense steps, you will be on your way to the best pregnant you possible!
It has been well documented that drinking alcohol or smoking during pregnancy can cause a wide variety of birth defects and birth problems for a developing child. Smoking during pregnancy can cause premature birth and low birth weight, while some research has shown it may contribute to Sudden Infant Death Syndrome. Drinking alcohol during pregnancy can cause fetal alcohol syndrome, causing facial defect and learning disabilities.
Don’t Miss Prenatal Vitamins
Prenatal vitamins ensure that both the mother and developing child are getting necessary nutrients for proper health and development. Often and obstetrician or midwife will recommend a prenatal vitamin for the mother to use to meet individual nutritional goals. Over the counter medications should be avoided without express permission from your physician.
Get Recommended Fluids
While pregnant, it is recommended that an expectant mother drinks at least eight glasses of water a day. It is important to avoid both caffeine and artificial coloring during the period to ensure the health of your baby. When pregnant women have adequate amounts of water within their body, regulation of body heat will be much easier. This is important because maternal overheating is a sign of dehydration.
