Staying healthy in pregnancy

Looking after yourself in pregnancy is important for your health and the health of your baby. We spoke to Royal Prince Alfred midwife, Kate Griew, about some things you can do to stay healthy in pregnancy.

Staying  healthy in pregnancy

Staying healthy in pregnancy can help you prepare for the birth and what comes after.

“Pregnancy, labour and parenting are all demanding on your body and your emotions. The more prepared you are for the physical and emotional demands, the more likely you are to cope with challenges as they present,” midwife Kate said.

Below we have listed some key things that you can do during your pregnancy to ensure the best health outcomes for you and your baby. Click on each of the topics below to find out more.

Staying health in pregnancy is also about being aware of the changes happening to your body.

“If you notice changes to your body that you had not expected or been warned about, it is important to talk to your midwife or doctor to see if it is something that should be checked,” said Kate.
