If you’re pregnant, congratulations! We’re so happy for you. No matter how far along you are, it’s important to create, and stick to, good prenatal care for you and your baby. Here are just a few things that are important to keep in mind while you’re pregnant.
When you’re pregnant, it’s important to increase the amount of calcium, folic adit, iron and protein into your diet. You can get these by incorporating fruits, vegetables, lean protein, whole grains and dairy products on a daily basis. In addition to increasing these foods, you should limit caffeine and avoid all alcohol.
Be sure to maintain a regular exercise routine while you’re pregnant. There are many benefits to this. Exercise can help you maintain strength, relieve stress and may help prevent gestational diabetes. Be sure to discuss your level of physical activity with one of our doctors at Marietta OB-GYN.
