Once pregnant, it is important to maintain a healthy lifestyle for the sake of you and the baby. Here are some of our favorite maternity health tips to help you feel great:
1. Take pre-natal vitamins- folic acid is key while your pregnant and your pre-natal vite's will help you get the amount you need
2.If you are a smoker, quit! - this tip goes without saying, but smoking is hazardous to both the baby and your lugs, so now is the perfect time to get rid of this bad habit!
3. Eat "for two" but no need to gorge- the pregnant body does not need as many excess calories as we tend to think- on average, pregnant women only need to consume 300 additional calories a day to ensure healthy baby development.
4. Get physical- light exercise such as yoga, low impact aerobics or pilates are great ways to boost your energy level and help your muscles prepare for delivery.
5. Sleep- better catch up on your sleep now because in a few months from now, you will be wishing you did. Also, you are probably feeling a little more tired than usual so your body will thank you for the extra z's.
