Dr. Andrew Arnold introduces this article by talking about planning around a healthy pregnancy.
This means taking time before conception to get yourself and your partner in the best possible health physically, mentally and emotionally.
Physically means addressing diet, lifestyle and health concerns before trying to have a baby.
At Cranbourne Family Chiropractic and Wellness Centre, we believe keeping track of what you eat and drink and makes for better choices, stop smoking and drinking alcohol, get more exercise, take a good supplement and make sure you get plenty of sleep.
Good mental health means factoring in rest and relaxation.
If stress is a constant in your life, get regular massages, try yoga, meditation, exercise, and favorite hobbies to give you the balance you need. Emotional health is feeling good about yourself and those around you.
It is having the ability to handle emotions such as anger, fear, agitation, and depression, it refers to our sense of well being.
If preparing for pregnancy makes you feel overwhelmed or anxious, now is the time to deal with it.
Use a natural therapist who can identify self-defeating thoughts and behavior and encourages you to make positive changes.
Being well prepared will help with the planning of a healthy pregnancy.
