COMMON ISSUES ADDRESSED DURING PRENATAL CARE

When you’re expecting a baby, you’ll quickly learn that your body is no longer your own. When health issues arise, a mother naturally wants to do whatever it takes to keep the baby healthy. One way she can do that is through Prenatal Care Berkeley CA. Here are some common issues that occur during pregnancy.

Gaining Too Much Weight

You can easily gain more weight than is necessary to support your growing child. It is difficult to control weight thanks to increased hunger and unbearable fatigue. One way to combat this is through diet. Try cutting out empty calories from processed snacks and eating healthful, filling foods instead. For example, lentils, beans and oatmeal are dense in nutrients, but low in calories. Another way to manage weight is through movement. It is crucial to stay active during pregnancy, and even a brisk walk every day can make a difference.

Not Getting Enough Nutrients

Your baby needs varied nutrients to thrive, and he or she is depending on you to get them. The baby consumes everything you consume, and knowing what a baby needs is the first step. Nutrients like folic acid, vitamin D, iron and calcium are just a few of the elements that should be incorporated into your dietary routine. Although you should focus on getting these nutrients primarily from food, it is crucial to take your prenatal vitamin consistently. The powerful combination of food and supplements will result in the optimal balance of nutrients.

Existing Health Concerns

Not every health issue that a mom has will affect her pregnancy, but many will. Issues like high blood pressure, kidney disease and heart disease can result in a challenging pregnancy and can be stressful for the mother. If you have a pre-existing condition, talk to your doctor about ways to manage your condition during pregnancy. The better you feel, the more capable you’ll be of caring for your baby.

Being pregnant is an immense responsibility. Everything you do for the next 9 months will affect the life inside of you, and prenatal care will set you up for success.
