It is better to plan your pregnancy at the right stage of your life when you are completely healthy, active and secure. Also, it is better to prepare your mind and body for pregnancy at least a few months before conception.

Also, it is advisable to take certain other measures even before you get the idea of getting pregnant. Here are some steps to take...

Pre-Natal Checkup

It is better to go for a check up to examine your overall health condition. Also, it is better to tell the doctor about your medical history and the medications you use if any.

Genetic-Carrier Test

This test allows you to know whether you have any disorders that may pass on to your next generation. Both the parents must undergo this. This test might help you take certain precautions to have a healthy child.

Quit Addictions

It is better to quit smoking, drinking and other habits before conception. Such habits may harm the foetus and may also cause stillbirths.

Quit Processed Foods

All kinds of processed foods are bad during pregnancy. Also, avoid street foods during that phase.

Relax Well
