Staying Safe Throughout Pregnancy

Most pregnant women worry about what is and isn’t safe during pregnancy. Since June is National Safety Month, here is a list of some tips to keep you safe throughout pregnancy:

  • Drink a lot of water, especially during the hot, summer months to avoid becoming dehydrated.
  • Do not sit for long periods of time to avoid circulation problems.
  • Wear flat, comfortable shoes to avoid slipping or falling. Also, your feet may swell during pregnancy so you should wear what is most comfortable.
  • Always wear seat belts while travelling in cars. Seat belts should fit across your chest and under your belly.
  • Avoid travelling during the last trimester of pregnancy. Most doctors do not recommend flying after 36 weeks of pregnancy when the chance of going into labor is greater.
  • Exercise during pregnancy is usually safe and even recommended to reduce the risk of complications throughout pregnancy. Check with your health care provider before starting a new exercise routine.
  • Eat a nutritious and healthy diet to help with fetal brain development and to reduce to risk of low birth weight and many birth defects.
  • Take prenatal vitamins to provide the extra nutrition that developing fetuses need.
  • Visit your prenatal health care provider regularly to monitor your pregnancy and the baby’s development.

Following these tips will contribute to a safe pregnancy for you and your baby, but be sure to talk to your health care provider about any questions or concerns that may arise throughout your pregnancy.
