Adopting Healthy Habits During Pregnancy

When I had my daughter, I wanted to do everything perfectly so my little one would be provided with the healthiest possible start in life. I spent hours each day reading everything including the value of banking my baby’s cord blood to how to track contractions! I was often overwhelmed by the amount of information available and the idea that everything I do while pregnant could affect my developing baby. Rather than burdening myself with too much information, I decided to stop reading and focus on acting on the things that I knew were good for me and my baby. Besides, sitting in front of the computer all day certainly wasn’t doing me any favors. Here’s a breakdown of my daily healthy habits:

Today, the common belief is that a pregnant woman is in delicate condition and should therefore be as inactive as possible. However, exercise is important for everyone, especially pregnant women. I knew that my chances of developing gestational diabetes was much greater if I didn’t stay physically active, so I made it a point to get at least 30 minutes of light exercise every day. I did this mainly by going for walks, but I also enjoyed swimming and yoga.

Hand Washing
There are a lot of pathogens out there, and my doctor had told me that the germs I get could be passed to my baby. Besides that, I was also more susceptible to illness. During pregnancy, a woman’s immune system doesn’t work as well as normal, so she has to be extra careful. I made sure to frequently, especially after running errands.

Eating Right
All throughout my pregnancy, nutrition was perhaps my strongest focus since it was so critical to my baby’s proper development. I avoided processed foods completely as these provide little nutrition and contain many questionable ingredients. Sugar was a no-no particularly because it further suppresses immunity and greatly increases the chances of gestational diabetes and other health problems. Instead, I ate plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables, wholesome meats, dairy and eggs along with my prenatal vitamins.

Sleep is extremely important during pregnancy, yet according to some sources, most women experience disturbed sleep when they’re pregnant. I certainly did, especially when my baby decided to practice kickboxing on my bladder. I was up every couple of hours nearly every night, so my body never had a chance to enter deep sleep. It’s during deep sleep that your body carries out many of its growth and repair tasks, so taking frequent naps was important.

When I began managing these aspects of my pregnancy, I began feeling healthier and more confident about bringing my daughter, Lily, into our little world. Give them a try for yourself and perhaps these healthy habits will do the same for you!


Thanks so much Katie! We enjoyed your post and look forward to hearing more from you in the future!
