How to Stay Healthy During Pregnancy
Congratulations! If you just found out you are pregnant and are now wondering what you can do to make sure you have a healthy pregnancy, you have come to the right place. The healthcare professionals at Birth Center Stone Oak are focused on providing the best care for babies and their mothers. In more than seven years since we opened our doors, we have served clients throughout the region by providing care for hundreds of natural births. Your birthing experience is tailored to the approach you want as we provide you with support, care, and guidance.
Every part of your body changes during pregnancy, requiring different types of care to keep you and your baby as healthy as possible. Exceptional prenatal care is essential for the development of a healthy pregnancy, labor, and birth. At Birth Center Stone Oak, we accomplish this by focusing on education, nutrition, exercise, and mental well-being throughout a series of visits during your pregnancy.
Childbirth education classes are an amazing way to get answers to all of your questions surrounding pregnancy. They also help build your confidence in your body’s ability to give birth. Depending on the class you will learn techniques to relax through labor, stages of labor and delivery, basics for newborn care, and much more.
Eating a nutritious diet is an important part of maintaining a healthy pregnancy. A healthy diet helps you handle the extra demands put on your body as your pregnancy progresses and supports the growth and development of your baby. Your midwife will work with you to focus on the types of food that are right for your body, often including lean meats, fruits and vegetables, whole grains, and healthy fats for a well-balanced diet.
Moderate exercise can benefit both you and your growing baby. Yoga is a great option during your pregnancy. There are classes that are geared towards pregnant women using modified stretches and poses that are safe for a pregnant belly. It is important to talk to your care provider before starting any exercise regime so you can decide what is safe for your pregnancy.
4. Mental Well-Being
This is an extremely important part of your health during pregnancy. Due to the change in dynamics within yourself and your family during pregnancy, both physical and emotional, it is important to have the right kind of support and understanding throughout the journey. Birth Center Stone Oak offers prenatal counseling through Gurn Counselling, LLC to all of our clients.
