Tips on how to have a healthy pregnancy and make healthier babies. Under normal pregnancy circumstances about 25% of woman are going to miscarry or lose their baby within the first twelve weeks. The honest truth is that no one, not you, me or your health care provider can guarantee that you will have a healthy baby, but we know from all out experience there are lots of things you can do to influence the outcome of your pregnancy.
Having a healthy pregnancy starts with preparing your body for this incredible cycle of pregnancy long before you become pregnant. A defective egg or sperm has a huge part to play as to the reason why so many women miscarry. Defective eggs or sperms are most often due to insufficient vitamins, minerals and antioxidants in the body.
Healthy pregnancy preparation will reduce your risk of congenital abnormalities, miscarriages and going into premature labor. Pregnancy is far more than a physical process that happens to a woman. It has an incredible mental, emotional, spiritual and energetic side to it. In order to have a healthy pregnancy you must embrace pregnancy from a holistic body, mind and spirit.
If you have just found out you are pregnant and want to have a healthy pregnancy then start with eating healthier. Be very conscious to make sure you include fruit and vegetables and high protein foods into your diet and eating three meals a day. Pregnancy does not require that you eat for two, but does require that you are very conscious about the quality of food you eat, making sure the food you eat for your is baby is of making high quality nutritious foods and nutritious. Remember protein foods are used as the building blocks for growing all your babies organs.
Set up your prenatal appointment:
Having a healthy pregnancy also includes early prenatal care. As soon as you know you are pregnant, set up your appointment with your doctor or midwife.
Start multivitamins and minerals:
As soon as you know you are pregnant start taking a multivitamin plus an extra folic acid (400 micrograms /mcg)until you get your prescription for your prenatal vitamins. Note many multivitamins and prenatal vitamins do not contain all the minerals that is required on a daily basis to maintain optimal health. Also add a good quality mineral to your pre natal vitamins. Minerals are the building blocks for a healthy pregnancy.
Having a healthy pregnancy requires that you prevent dehydration and deliberately hydrate every organ and cell in your body. Remember every single cell growing within your babies system need water and if you are dehydrated then your babies cells will be lacking vital water constitution. Drink at least twelve glasses of water every day, this does not mean soda, tea, coffee or juices. It means 12 glasses of filtered water on top of what you are drinking. yes you may spend a lot of time in the bathroom but what the heck you are growing an amazing person inside of you.
A dehydrated body can cause pregnancy complications such as pre term labor which could result on your baby fighting for his or her life in a neonatal intensive care unit. Pregnancy requires extra water intake just by the blood volume adjustments necessary to sustain pregnancy. Did you know by the time you are thirty-four weeks pregnant your blood volume will have increased by forty percent. Women are amazing beings.
Healthy pregnancy requires that you adjust your body to all the necessary changes needed to grow a healthy baby. Exercise will help increase your body stamina. If you are not used to exercising, then start doing a little bit of walking or stretching even if it is for 10 minutes every day. If you exercise regularly continue your exercise program as long as you do not become breathless. Shortness of breath reduces the oxygen supply to your baby and is not conducive to a healthy pregnancy.
Pregnancy is much more than a physical process. Embracing pregnancy from the mind, body and spirit prospective will enhance your possibility of having a healthy pregnancy. What can you do regarding the aspect of the mind to help you have a healthy pregnancy? Everything that you think, say, and do during your pregnancy has a profound effect on your unborn child for life. Every time you think a positive thought, your baby is going to pick up that information from you and end up been a very positive person. Worrying and complaining during your pregnancy will feed your baby negative thoughts, and you might have a healthy pregnancy but with an emotionally scarred baby.
It is very important for your babies sake to be mindful of what you say, do, and think during your pregnancy. Learn how to connect and communicate with the emotions of your unborn child to have a healthy pregnancy and a healthy baby. Generally, the more you are informed and educated about all the dynamics of pregnancy, the likelihood is that you will have a healthier pregnancy outcome and a healthier baby.
