Great tips on having the best pregnancy possible!


To make life easier as a pregnant mother, we've put together some wonderful tips and reminders for you!

  • Take time to pamper yourself.  Relaxing benefits you, the baby, AND the new dad!

  • Drink lots of water and fruit juice.  Traditional Medicinals brand (found in the natural foods part of the grocery store) has a wonderful pregnancy tea.

  • Red Raspberry Leaf tea is also a wonderful uterine tonic, used by women for centuries to strengthen their uterus and ease/hasten childbirth.

  • Use Tea Tree Oil as a "green" alternative to chemicals for cleaning your home and purifying the air you breathe.
  • Buy lots of pillows and USE them in bed!

  • Make sure to take your prenatal daily.  A "green" prenatal is going to allow your body to absorb more nutrients because they are made with food, not synthetics.  Some women even find that switching to a "green" prenatal lessens their nausea tremendously.

  • Be sure to get plenty of protein.  Your body needs lots of it to grow a healthy baby.  High blood pressure can often be avoided by keeping your high quality protein intake high.  Try almonds, yogurt, eggs, cheese and lean meats. Women struggling with high blood pressure will find help here.

  • Read all you can get your hands on, and look at birth photos, videos, etc.  Familiarity with what to expect can prevent anxiety.

  • Hire a doula.  Doulas are very knowledgeable about pregnancy and birth and can help you brainstorm to solve any comfort issues you may have.

  • Journal.  Your child will find your ramblings so precious and reassuring when they are having their own babies or as a graduation or coming of age present.

  • Buy an exercise ball and sit on it as often as possible.  This can relieve back pain, and also keep your pelvis limber for the big day.

  • Find a local La Leche League group and plan to attend a meeting or two before the birth.  These ladies will become a great resource for after the baby arrives.

  • Don't apologize for having to go to the bathroom all the time.

  • Buy a reacher/grabber thing to get things up high and down low.  You'll be surprised how off-balance that belly can make you.

  • Buy slip on shoes.  It's nice to eliminate bending over at the end of your pregnancy.

  • Recruit your children to help out around the house.

  • Plan and ASK for help from family and friends for after the birth.  Don't try to be Superwoman!

  • Consider hiring a Postpartum Doula.

  • Buy lots of paper plates even one package can make a big difference.

  • Store pre-made casseroles in the freezer.

  • Don't go crazy decorating the nursery and buying tons of "stuff".  Simplifying your life makes having a baby easier.  Valuable baby equipment might only include diapers and blankets at first.
