Your joy knows no bounds once your gynecologist confirms that pregnancy test. It is a life-changing event, to put it at its mildest best. You, the mum-to-be, are now the special one in your family, deserving of special attention and nurturance. Apart from regular trips to your GP and gynecologist you would need to observe a few simple rules having to do with pre-natal care.
An ever-proliferating trend of double income families has led to an increasing number of women joining the workforce. You don’t need your gynecologist to tell you the criticality associated with pre-natal rest. As a mum-to-be you would need to rest for long periods as pregnancy is marked by dizzy spells, nausea and vomiting. As you advance in your pregnancy you feel the fatigue even more. So, if you happen to be a working woman you would be best advised to apply for maternity leave well in advance.
Do not, at any cost, lift heavy stuff like furniture, trunks etc. Also, avoid exposure to X-rays and ultra violet rays as they could harm your baby. Metals that are heavily reactive too, are a big non-no, metals like copper, mercury, and lead.
Eat right. This is one point that cannot be over-emphasized because whatever you ingest goes directly to your baby. Taking proteins, fibers and vitamins in the right proportions would ensure that your baby is born healthy. Consult a dietitian if possible. Stay away from cigarettes and alcohol like the plague. Do not inhale smoke even indirectly if you can.
When your baby is born there will be blood flowing from the umbilical cord. Do not discard it at any cost as this blood is extremely advantageous with regard to serious disorders. Contact your nearest private bank for storing the umbilical cord stem cells of your baby.Note: As a pregnant woman, you are specifically warned to seek medical advice prior to initiating any exercise program, diet, or treatment provided by Cryobanks.
