Breastfeeding is the best nutrition for healthy growth and development of babies. Good maternal nutrition helps sustain an adequate supply and quality of breast milk. Unnecessary introduction of bottle-feeding, partially or fully, or of other complementary foods and drinks may have a negative impact on breastfeeding, which may be irreversible. Consult your doctor and consider the social and financial implications before deciding to use breast milk substitutes or if you have difficulty breastfeeding. Follow usage, preparation and storage instructions of breast milk substitutes or of other complementary foods and drinks carefully as improper or unnecessary use may pose a health hazard.
According to Dr. Thomas Verny in his book published by the Association for Prenatal and Perinatal Psychology and Health (APPPAH), your emotional and biological connection with your child is at its peak while you are pregnant. Whatever you think and feel will affect the baby. Therefore, hanging out with your friends and enjoying your activities will help relieve yourself of stress and lift your spirit up. However, do not exert yourself if you feel comfortable.
If you're looking to relax, there's nothing better than a nice spa day! You can go on your own or even bring a few other expectant mums, so that you'll have a nice relaxing day to talk about your pregnancy or even just enjoy each other's company! That said, make sure you consult your gynaecologist first to make sure you're good to go – and even then see if they've got any good recommendations for spas that are better for expecting mums.
Pregnancy is a precious and unforgettable experience for every mom. Therefore, capture these moments in pictures or videos to show how happy you were when you were pregnant with your little one!
While your child is growing in your tummy, your child needs nutritious food. The nutritional intake of a child is directly proportionally to the child's intelligence. Therefore, it is important for you to consume supplementary food that will keep you and your baby healthy.
