Where Are You in the Pregnancy Journey?
Are you trying to get pregnant, pregnant or just had a baby? If yes, then you’ve
come to the right place! Staying healthy is one of the most important things you
can do before, during, and after pregnancy.
Trying to Conceive
Trying to get pregnant? A healthy pregnancy ideally begins prior to conception. Here are some things to keep in mind…
Take Care of Yourself!
Eat right, exercise and start taking a prenatal vitamin to supplement your intake of Folic acid, Vitamin D, Iron and DHA (or Omega fatty acids).
Decrease your stress levels. Do whatever works well for you – yoga, meditation, walking outside, etc.
Change Your Drinking Habits!
Abstain from alcohol and reduce caffeine intake.
Get Enough Folic acid
Folic acid is one of the most important vitamins to take while trying to conceive. Women who consume healthy diets with adequate folate may reduce their risk of having a child with birth defects of the brain or spinal cord.1,2
Congratulations, you’re having a baby! Support your healthy diet with one of the OB Complete® prenatal dietary supplements taken daily to help get the nutrients you need during this important time of your baby’s growth and development.
If you’re in the ﬁrst trimester you may begin to feel different. Some women experience breast tenderness and morning sickness while others will feel no change.
In the second trimester, your body will begin to transform as the fetus grows and its needs become greater. This is the time period where most women enjoy being pregnant and don’t experience much, if any, discomfort.
The third trimester is a time when the pregnancy may become uncomfortable but is ﬁlled with anticipation of the child soon to arrive.
I’m a Mom
Congratulations on becoming a mom! If you are breastfeeding, know that your body is continuing to provide vitamins, proteins and fats that your growing baby needs. Find out why it’s important to keep taking your prenatal dietary supplements after your baby is born…
Eat an extra 450-500 calories per day.
Drink a glass of water every time you nurse to keep yourself hydrated.
Continue Taking Your Prenatal Vitamin
Postnatal nutrition means eating and supplementing your diet in a very similar way as in the prenatal period.3 So don’t stop – continue to take your prenatal vitamin!
