When you first learn you are pregnant, you should think about taking pregnancy classes.

Decide if you want to use a Douala when giving birth. If you do, start talking to some that are local. Douala’s can help you have a shorter birth, and one that is more satisfying and safe then going the traditional route. Don’t let someone talk you into doing this, it needs to be 100% up to you.

A lot of people are super giddy to decorate their baby’s nursery. Being around paint fumes while pregnant may not be the healthiest thing. If you are going to paint, open your windows to ensure that the room is properly ventilated. You’ll also need a family member or friend to help so that you do not overtire yourself.

Yoga is a great way to prepare for childbirth. This form of exercise helps with morning sickness and eases discomfort caused by back pain. The stretches used in yoga help cultivate the muscles used for birthing. Most pregnant woman find that they have less aches and pains and more energy while practicing yoga during pregnancy.

Exercising in pregnancy is good for mom and baby. The benefits include decreased risk for gestational diabetes, less complaints of constipation and back pain and a quicker recovery from birth for mom. Stop exercising and see your doctor if you have signs, such as shortness of breath, dizziness, fluid leaking, uterine contractions or vaginal bleeding.

It is a good idea to receive a flu shot while pregnant. When pregnant, the immune system weakens, making it more likely for you to contract the flu. This could pose a danger to both you and your baby.

If you want to travel during your pregnancy, make sure you will easily have access to good medical care. You should meet with a doctor regularly and go to the hospital right away if something unusual happens. If you are traveling, ensure you have a cell phone available at all times.
