Maintaining A Healthy Lifestyle During Pregnancy

Maintaining A Healthy Lifestyle During Pregnancy

“You’re eating for two now!” as they say. Pregnancy boosts a woman’s appetite because she has to sustain both herself and her baby. Women who take the effort to maintain a healthy diet and exercise at least three times a week, along with regular prenatal care/supplement are less likely to have complications during their pregnancy. They’re also more likely to give birth to a healthy baby successfully. What is stressed during the IVF services in Davao is proper health care pre, post, and during pregnancy.

Follow these guidelines to ensure a healthy pregnancy and delivery for you and your baby.

Hydration

Having the usual eight glasses of water won’t cut it anymore. Your baby will be pressing down and applying pressure to your bladder for nine whole months forcing you to urinate more often than you’re used to. Not only that, you need to make sure that you have enough water to produce healthy and adequate amniotic fluid. Fertility specialists advise women to have at least two liters of water a day.

Exercise

If you’re not used to exercising when you’re not pregnant, don’t just enroll in CrossFit classes when you find out you’re bringing a baby into the world. But if you do have a set exercise routine, don’t be afraid of continuing to exercise until your last term! Consult with your doctor about what you should and shouldn’t be doing in the gym. But it is generally advised to walk at least 20 minutes a day.

Nutrients

The key to fetal development is getting the right nutrients A well-balanced pregnancy diet includes; protein, vitamin C, calcium, fruits and vegetables, whole grains, iron-rich foods, adequate fat, and folic acid. Folate is particularly crucial to prenatal care because research has found that it prevents congenital disabilities known as neural tube defects, such as spina bifida.

Rest

Sleep isn’t something you should scrimp on when you’re pregnant because you probably won’t be getting any once the baby’s born. Doctors recommend that mothers get at least eight hours of sleep a night to help her replenish her energy for the next day. Having the right amount of sleep every night limits stress, which could potentially be dangerous to both you and your baby.
