Get in touch with the midwife as soon as you get to know about your pregnancy to organize your antenatal care. With a midwife around, you will get good advice for a healthy pregnancy right from the start.
2. Eat well
Plan to take balanced diet during pregnancy. Include fruits, vegetables, plenty of carbohydrates (such as bread, pasta and rice, as the basis of your meals. Choose wholegrain carbohydrates rather than white, so you get plenty of fibre), daily servings of protein (such as fish, lean meat, eggs, nuts or pulses, and some milk and dairy foods), and two portions of fish a week (at least one of them should be oily).
3. Exercise regularly
Exercising regularly benefits expecting ladies the most. It may help you cope with extra weight in a better manner, makes it easier for you to get back into shape after your baby is born and boosts your spirits and even help to ward off depression.
4. Quit smoking, drinking and cut back on caffeine
Smoking during pregnancy can cause serious health problems, for you and your baby. These risks include an increased risk of miscarriage, premature birth, low birth weight and cot death (SIDS). Drinking heavily or binge drinking during pregnancy is dangerous especially for your baby.
