Healthy Pregnancy Tips You Really Have To Follow

Arguably, pregnancy is one of the most critical and sensitive phases in a woman’s life. It is a life-changing journey and requires a lot of care and comfort. As a young couple, it is essential that you learn about the beautiful ways in which the female body changes as the fetus inside develop.

Both the partners must plan every aspect of pregnancy and feel confident about the body’s ability to grow, nourish, and bring a new life into this world. Here are a few easy-to-follow pregnancy tips that will help you ensure a balanced lifestyle and a safe delivery:

Maintain a healthy and nutritious diet

During pregnancy, the food you eat is the most significant source of energy and nutrients for the fetus. What you eat determines the growth of your unborn baby. Thus, you must include more fresh vegetables, fruits, fish, grains, eggs, and dairy products in your diet.

While pregnancy often comes with different food cravings, you must limit your junk food intake. As a pregnant mother, you can give in to desires, but be mindful of the portion size. Eat plenty of food with fiber such as bananas, oats, or a bowl of brown rice. Choose healthy snacks such as fruit yogurt or whole-grain crackers over fried food.

Exercise

Staying active is essential even for your general health and helps you reduce stress levels, control your weight, improves blood circulation, boost your mood, and sleep better. Practice pregnancy-specific exercises and walk at least 15-20 minutes every day at a moderate pace, in cool, shaded areas or indoors to prevent overheating. 

Pilates, yoga, swimming, and walking are useful outdoor activities for pregnant women. Listen to your body needs, and do not overdo any physical movements.

Avoid Toxins

Limit caffeine and avoid substances such as tobacco, alcohol, or drugs. All these unhealthy habits may lead to complications during delivery and have a link with congenital disabilities and miscarriages.

Smoking cigarettes, for example, limit oxygen flow to your baby and can cause severe health complications post-birth.

Drink More Water

As a pregnant woman, it is your blood that supplies essential nutrients, including oxygen to your baby, and carries waste and carbon dioxide away during pregnancy. Studies show that the blood volume in pregnant women can increase up to 50 percent to handle all the extra activity. Drinking water is vital to support that gain. It also helps prevent constipation, hemorrhoids, UTIs, fatigue, headaches, swelling, and other uncomfortable pregnancy symptoms. Aim for around 8-10 glasses per day.

Stay Clean

Frequently washing your hands helps you stay away from infections such as chickenpox and cytomegalovirus. Otherwise, these infections can result in congenital disabilities and may cause other complications in your newborn.

Seek your physician’s advice for pregnancy hygiene tips and suitable sanitizers to prevent communicable infections.

Wish You a Safe Pregnancy!

It is crucial to follow healthy pregnancy tips to prevent any unwanted medical emergencies. However, you never know what problem may arise. To financially secure yourself from the expenses related to pregnancy, you can get health insurance with a maternity cover. The objective of this cover is to provide financial aid in case of any uncalled expenses of childbirth. Health plans from reputable insurers also offer add-ons for pregnancy and childbirth, which include pre-hospitalization, delivery expenses, and a cover for your newborn too.
