Women of childbearing age should start taking a multivitamin regularly. This ensures that she gets enough nutrients, especially folic acid. Folic acid is found in both multivitamins and food. This is important because it can reduce the risk of neural tube defects that later develop into the baby’s brain and spinal cord, such as spina bifida. Studies have shown that healthy women who start taking a multivitamin regularly before pregnancy also reduce the risk of preeclampsia or toxemia. Toxemia is where the mother’s blood pressure shoots to dangerous levels and can be deadly to mother and baby.

The food we eat may not contain the proper amounts of vitamins and minerals our bodies need. A multivitamin adds those important nutrients to our diet. Taking a multivitamin before and during the first trimester of pregnancy will provide the mother and baby with proper nutrition and reduce the risk of malnutrition. Taking a multivitamin does not mean you can follow a diet that lacks the nutrients your body needs.

Multivitamins are intended to be a supplement to, and not the only source of, these nutrients. While women should eat plenty of healthy foods before and during pregnancy, there are certain foods that a woman should stay away from once she is pregnant. Women should avoid soft, unpasteurized cheeses, unpasteurized milk, juices and apple cider, foods containing raw eggs, raw or undercooked meats, fish high in mercury, and processed meats.

In addition to taking a multivitamin regularly, women should start a weekly exercise routine. If your doctor says it is safe to do low-impact exercise during pregnancy, it has been shown to be extremely beneficial. Exercise during pregnancy can prevent obesity; reduce back pain, swelling, and other pregnancy-related problems; improve sleep; increase energy; and shorten recovery time. If you had an active lifestyle before pregnancy, it’s okay to continue, but in moderation. Most exercises are safe as long as you don’t overdo them. Safe exercises include swimming, walking, elliptical machines, and other low-impact exercises.

Although you should drink more during pregnancy, women should avoid caffeine and especially alcohol. Water is the best way to get enough moisture. Drinking more water is important. It helps flush out toxins in the body. It is recommended that women drink at least a liter of water per day. Water helps your body prepare for all the changes it is going through and relieves and discomfort you are having. Studies have shown that when you drink more water, you retain less water because you are well hydrated. Drinking enough water helps protect the baby by keeping the amniotic sac wet. Adding to the list of benefits of drinking water prevents premature birth and reduces morning sickness.

It is important for women to take care of their bodies before, during and after pregnancy.

Regularly taking a multivitamin before getting pregnant reduces their chances of delivering the baby prematurely. It also reduces the risk of malnutrition. Pregnancy is one of those times when the body needs water. It carries nutrients from you to the baby. Make sure you take the multivitamins, exercise and drink enough water for a happy and healthy baby.
