So you are pregnant? Congratulations, for it is a time for rejoicing. But before you start uncorking the champagne bottle, do pick up the phone and make an appointment with a gynecologist. They will go through your medical history to discuss the possibilities of anomalies or future illnesses that could affect your little one. The first visit entails, among other things, a check up with regard to blood pressure as well as weight.
Pregnancy is a thrilling time, no doubt- it is a miracle of life with life about to give birth to life. That is why a certain amount of care needs to be taken when you fall pregnant. Women smokers will have to stub out that cigarette indefinitely both before and after birth. Reason? Cigarette smoke is harmful for your unborn child. Not only would you need to give up smoking but your partner as well. Second-hand smoke, too, can harm both you and your baby.
The same can be said of alcohol: pregnant ladies are strongly advised against alcohol intake as even tiny amounts can pose a risk to the fetus growing inside of you.
Look after your stress levels as extra stress can harm your child in ways that you cannot imagine. Since, in real life stress is impossible to avoid altogether, you are best advised to look for stress busters like yoga, meditation or even light exercise. Ask your friends and family to be around to help if possible.
Also, don’t forget to eat healthy with a diet rich in leafy greens. Consult your gynecologist and dietitian in this regard.
After birth tell your doctor not to discard your baby’s umbilical cord and placenta. You can store them in a bank for stem cell research which has the potential of altering the face of medical science.
