Getting pregnant is a big deal, especially when it is for the first time. To ensure that you have a healthy pregnancy journey, with a perfectly healthy baby at the end of it, as well as a good pre and post-natal health, there are some steps to take in order to achieve these.

First Baby

Make a Doctor’s Appointment

This is the first and most important step to getting pregnant. Seeing a doctor for medical advice for you and your spouse is highly suggested. Tests could be carried out to check if you are both medically fit to make a baby. There are some medical issues that could hinder conception and these tests will help figure them out for treatment.

Read and Learn about Pregnancy and Childbirth

Educate yourself on the concepts of pregnancy and childbirth. Read books and attend classes to broaden your knowledge about the art of pregnancy and the act of childbirth. Having an idea about these things will help you know what to do when you have weird symptoms during your pregnancy.

Eat healthy and Exercise

Healthy living promotes a healthy life- and since you intend on bringing forth a life, eating the right type and amount of food, and exercising will help get your body into shape for pregnancy.

Be Careful of the Drugs You Take

An innocent painkiller could contain harmful substances that could affect your pre-natal health. Ensure that you read the ingredients of the drugs you intend to take and make an online research about them to determine if they are safe for ingestion.

Quit Smoking and Drinking

If you smoke or drink (or do both), you will need to quit before you get pregnant. Cigarettes and alcohol are health hazards and they can cause complications during pregnancy.

Avoid Infections and if There is Any, Treat Immediately

Infections are terrible drawbacks when trying to have a baby. They can cause a lot of discomfort and if untreated for too long, they can affect some vital reproductive organs and this could cause a serious issue and might ever trigger infertility. You must ensure to take note of any change in your discharges- watch out for the smell, texture and colour. If you notice anything off, consult a gynaecologist immediately and get treated.

Have Only Positive Thoughts

Let go of any negative thought and be optimistic about the journey you are about to make. Discard any scares you may be having about being pregnant and be confident that you are going to be fine all the way.

Quit Birth Control and Figure out Your Ovulation Date

These are final and obvious steps to prepare your body for your first pregnancy. Birth controls are self-explanatory; they work to prevent conception. Also, your ovulation date accurately helps to determine when you are most likely to get pregnant.

Adhere to the above tips and getting pregnant should be an easy and a beautiful process. Good luck to you and your partner.

  1. Avoid some body creams as well as hair products which may contain chemicals that can be harmful to the foetus. No one is absolutely prepared but if you do the above then you are on the right path to a healthy pregnancy. Nice write-up.

  2. Amazingly poignant! This is the first post-pregnancy article I’ve read till the end. Thanks for keeping it simple.

  3. As much as I thought I knew about pregnancy, this article has shown me that pregnancy issues are best seen the women way. You might want to shoot your shot at gynecology counseling. Great job Martha Kings!! Cheers

  4. Simple straightforward read… I must say though that I sometimes get scared of childbirth. In the last year, I’ve lost 4 friends from childbirth complications. Makes me wonder if adoption isn’t just the safest option…???
