Here's how to Stay Healthy for a Natural Childbirth!
Natural delivery is always a better choice over a C- section, unless there is an emergency! When you opt for natural childbirth, make sure your body is prepared for it! Here is how to be ready...
When you learn about pregnancy, switch to a healthier diet! Diet will determine a lot of things, like your weight gain during pregnancy, your stamina during delivery, your health after delivery and your baby's health throughout!
Cut down on junk and regularize healthy eating. Have a variety of cereals, vegetables and fruits along with good sources of protein in your diet.
If you are a vegetarian, go for all kinds of pulses and legumes, soy beans, low fat milk and milk products for maintaining the protein intake.
If you are a non vegetarian, in addition to the above mentioned foods, you can have fish, lean cuts of chicken and eggs in your diet. But remember to limit your oil intake. Go for healthier recipes.
Good protein intake and a good amount of physical activity will definitely help for a better labour!
Watch out your fluid intake. Plain water, fruit juices, soups, milk, milkshakes, etc can be opted for. Sufficient fluid intake will ensure healthy tissues, and so will also help in labour.
Your diet as well as your physical activity will surely count for a healthier and safer natural childbirth.
Natural childbirth is a gift you give to your baby... Go for it!
