Are you ready for pregnancy? How much do you know about being pregnant? Education is the key to understanding everything, and pregnancy is no different!
There is so much to learn about how to have a healthy pregnancy and keep your unborn baby protected, safe, and flourishing. When pregnant, you'll naturally want to do everything you possibly can to stay healthy and provide the best physical condition in which your baby can develop and thrive. You may know that it is important to eat healthily and take vitamins, but do you know which ones you should take, and how much daily?
Pregnancy education basics
Carrying a pregnancy to term requires being vigilant about your well being and health. It's the time to learn all you can about early pregnancy symptoms and risk factors for complications, but it is also time to gain a working knowledge of the basics: When is the egg fertilized? What kind of exercise should you do when pregnant? How many placentas do twins have?
Another reason to gain as much pregnancy knowledge as possible so when questions pop-up (and they will!), you will know when something is a concern and you should consult your doctor or midwife: Is spotting normal? What about vaginal discharge? Do you know the symptoms of preeclampsia? Should you attempt to get pregnant if you have diabetes?
