A healthy sperm and a healthy egg!

How many times have you considered having a baby and put it off to a later time thinking that this may not be the right time? Your reasons may be financial concerns, responsibilities, traveling and so on. But sometimes you just have to give it some time because you are not yet "fit" to have a baby.

Being "fit" means to be in a state of physical and emotional well-being. Pregnancy should not be considered only a 9 month journey but it is a year long journey that helps you prepare your body for the changes of pregnancy. An unhealthy lifestyle coupled with certain risk factors like age, drug use and other medical problems can complicate pregnancy. If you have been leading an unhealthy lifestyle and do plan to have a baby soon, you don't need a better reason to make the change! Start right away because parenting begins long before your baby is conceived.

• The healthy diet: Eating a healthy diet gives your child everything needed for a healthy start in life. Eating a balanced diet rich in fruits and vegetables, increasing the intake of foods with certain specific nutrients like folic acid, vitamin C and zinc can be beneficial to the mother.
