Before and During Pregnancy: The Top 10

If you’re thinking about pregnancy or currently have your bun in the oven, there are many things you can do to keep yourself and baby healthy and have the most enjoyable pregnancy.

Before you get your head spinning with the million do’s and don’t on the interwebs and get distracted by notifications on your phone, relax with a cup of tea and check out these easy tips.

Enjoy!

  1. Get more sleep.

  • Go to bed 15 minutes earlier.

  1. Reduce stress.

  • Meditate for 10 minutes whenever possible. Free apps like Simply Being or Relax and Rest are amazing.

  1. Avoid heated environments like hot yoga, saunas, hot tubs, hot springs.

  • Self explanatory. Don’t risk birth defects with too much heat.

  1. Floss.

  • Don’t overthink it, just grab the floss and start. It’s quicker than you think; and necessary as periodontal disease increases preterm delivery sevenfold.

  1. See a pelvic floor physiotherapist.

  • If you already have problems holding your pee, get one NOW. This is not normal, despite what anyone has ever told you. A baby will not make this better. These miracle workers will have you tightened up in no time.

  1. Walk.

  • THE best exercise for pregnancy. Get outside in nature and count that as your meditation for the day. Forget the guilt about missing the gym.

  1. Drink more water.

  • Most of us are dehydrated on a good day, and adding another human to the mix increases that requirement. Fill up a large glass bottle and keep it with you always.

  1. Quality supplements.

  1. Develop healthy habits with your partner.

  • Everything you do they should do as well. It takes 2 of you to make this happen! Cook together, walk together, floss together... you get it.

  1. Quit smoking.

  • It had to be said. Just start by cutting out one a day and see where it goes. Still an improvement.
