Tips for Pregnancy


If you are pregnant or want to become pregnant, keep these things in mind:

  • Go to the doctor as soon as you think you are pregnant. It is important for you and your baby to see a doctor as early as possible. It will keep both of you healthy—and help your baby get off to a good start. It is even better to see a doctor before you get pregnant, so you can get your body ready for pregnancy.
  • Maintain healthy lifestyle habits. This includes exercising, eating balanced and healthy meals, and resting for 8-10 hours every night.
  • Do not use tobacco, alcohol or drugs now or while you’re pregnant.
