Tips for Pregnant Women

10 Every Day Tips

  • Eat five or six well-balanced meals each day.

  • Take a prenatal vitamin each day as directed by your obstetrician or midwife.

  • Don't smoke or allow yourself to be exposed to secondhand smoke

  • Drink plenty of fluids

    At least eight to 10 glasses a day — avoiding caffeine and artificial coloring.

  • Exercise

    it’s important for your general health and also can help reduce stress. Take a pregnancy exercise class or walk at least fifteen to twenty minutes every day at a moderate pace. Walk in cool, shaded areas or indoors in order to prevent overheating.

  • Get adequate sleep

    at least eight hours a night. If you’re suffering from sleep disturbances, take naps during the day and see your physician for advice.

  • Wear comfy shoes

    Wear comfortable, nonrestricting shoes and put your feet up several times a day to prevent fatigue and swelling of the feet, legs, and ankles.

  • Don;t forget the seat belt

    Continue to wear a safety belt while riding in motor vehicles. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the shoulder portion of the restraint should be positioned over the collar bone. The lap portion should be placed under the abdomen as low as possible on the hips and across the upper thighs, never above the abdomen. Also, pregnant women should sit as far from the air bag as possible.

  • Medications

    Don’t take over-the-counter medications or herbal remedies without first consulting your obstetrician or midwife.

  • Don't drink alcohol.
