How to be a fit and healthy mum-to-be
Being pregnant brings lots of joy, but it can also bring the aches, the tiredness and emotional fragility, so making sure you and baby are feeling good over the 9 months is really important. So what do you need?
Time to indulge in ‘me time’ - have a weekend away or pamper yourself
Get active - exercising brings lots of benefits, such as helping ward off excessive weight gain, ease tiredness, reduce the aches and pains. Even getting out and walking every day will help.
Getting the right nutrients - your baby takes a lot of your nutrients so it’s important to ensure you’re getting enough of the right things for both of you to benefit (See below)
Visit the dentist - pregnancy can bring about bleeding gums and sensitive teeth, and as you have free dental appointment during pregnancy, make sure you utilise them
Quality time - make sure you have time with your partner, where it’s not just about the baby.
