Healthy Weight Gain During Pregnancy

Having a baby? Congratulations! Being pregnant is one of the most amazing things that can happen in a woman’s life. It can get overwhelming and there is a ton of information that you have to know. But first, you have to keep in mind that being healthy during and after your pregnancy is really important. You have to take good care of yourself both physically and emotionally. Doing these will benefit you and your baby. Keep yourself healthy with these easy tips.

• Exercise daily. Staying active will give you the strength and endurance you need to carry the weight you will gain during your pregnancy and handle the physical stress of labor.

• Always take time to give yourself a break.

• Eat a healthy and balanced diet.

• Never drink alcohol during your pregnancy. It can reach your baby fast and can increase your baby’s risk for serious problems. Drinking also increases the chance for miscarriage and stillbirth.
