Care for Expectant Moms
As a mom I always try to do what is best for my kids. Did they brush their teeth? Are they eating healthy enough? But really these are not new ideas for me. From the moment I found out I was pregnant with my daughter, I wanted to make sure I made the best decisions I could for her by taking care of myself during pregnancy.
Pregnancy brings new and exciting changes for everyone involved. And whether this is a mother’s first or fifth child, every parent wants to do everything they can to ensure a healthy and happy pregnancy and delivery. This all starts with taking good care of mom. Expectant mothers should make sure they are eating a healthy diet, exercising regularly, and taking a prenatal vitamin. In addition to these things moms can do on their own, seeing a physician early on in pregnancy and also on a regular basis gives moms the best opportunities for a healthy pregnancy. And don't be afraid to ask the physician questions about what to expect during pregnancy. Physicians are there to help you. Find out more ways to stay healthy during pregnancy and what to expect during labor and delivery at the CMH Baby Fair this Saturday! Hope you see you there!
