A healthy Lifestyle is a Must!
Becoming a new mom is a thrilling yet daunting experience! From the moment you find out you’re expecting a little bundle of joy, you need to make numerous life changing decisions – even before the big arrival.
The Importance of Exercising
How long can I jog for? Am I able to lift weights? These are some of the questions that a lot of pregnant women are unsure of when it comes to exercise. Many expectant moms want to jump in and exercise to ensure to keep the extra weight off, but sometimes it’s not a good idea to start something your body isn’t used to.
Antenatal Visits and Appointments
As soon as you find out that you are pregnant, schedule appointments with a reputable gynaecologist/mid-wife who can help you plan your antenatal care. This will ensure that you are getting the right advice for a healthy pregnancy, right from the get go.
Antenatal care is an essential part of pregnancy, and on days where you are tempted to skip your appointment and rather relax on the couch – remember that sticking to appointments is essential in assessing your unborn baby’s health, and to examine whether the pregnancy is progressing well. And of course, the absolute best part of an antenatal visit is hearing the heartbeat and getting a visual ‘sneak peek’ of your growing little one during an ultrasound.
