What's good for you is good for your baby.

What's good for you is good for your baby

The best thing you can do now is take care of yourself. By being good to yourself, you’re being good to your baby. A lot of what you do now will affect your baby, sometimes long after he or she is born.

That is why it’s important to eat healthyexercise (PDF)see your doctor and change any bad habits (like drinking, smoking or using drugs) that can affect your baby’s health.

It’s a good idea to see your doctor before the baby is born. Studies show that getting prenatal care early can help you have a healthier baby and ensure normal birth weight. You should go to all of your prenatal visits, even if you are feeling well. Your health and the health of your baby depend on it.
