Make an appointment for prenatal care
One of the best things you can do for the health of you and your baby is to start getting prenatal care. Prenatal care is the care you get when you are pregnant; it is the foundation for a healthy pregnancy and a safe delivery. Pregnancy complications can happen even if you are healthy. The best way to avoid complications and deliver a healthy baby is by starting prenatal care early in your pregnancy.
Fine-tune your eating habits
Eating a healthy diet during pregnancy is important to your baby’s growth and development. In order to get the nutrients you both need, you must eat from a variety of food groups, including fruits and vegetables, bread and grains, protein sources, and dairy products.
Start taking prenatal vitamins
Although the main source of vitamins and nutrients needed during pregnancy should come from your food, a daily prenatal vitamin can help fill the gaps.
Free prenatal vitamins are provided at your first prenatal visit to Vecino’s Denver Harbor Family Clinic.
