A healthy pregnancy

A healthy lifestyle can increase your chances of having a healthy pregnancy.

Even the most healthy women can have pregnancy problems but taking steps towards a healthy lifestyle can increase your chances of having a healthy pregnancy.

Good food, a level of physical activity, relaxation and reduced stress all provide the best conditions for your health and therefore your pregnancy, your fetus and your birth experience. Your goals can be simple and need to be achievable. Worrying about health and fitness during pregnancy is not going to be helpful, in fact worry will only increase your stress levels.
