Childbirth Preparation

Preparing for Pregnancy

What happens before a child is conceived, and in the critical first few weeks afterward, may have a profound impact on later quality of life. As a result, many obstetricians encourage their patients to begin adopting healthful new habits before conception even takes place. These include

  • Eating a balanced diet
  • Taking a daily vitamin pill
  • Getting plenty of rest
  • Participating in regular exercise
  • Moderating the use of caffeine and artificial sweeteners
  • Avoiding certain medications
  • Adopting a smoke-free and alcohol-free lifestyle

Preparing for Childbirth
