What are your tips and your advice for staying healthy during pregnancy?

Happiness is imperative during pregnancy! Try to dress up, do things you love, and keep yourself busy. -- Noreena S.

Have some good food (and lots of fruit)! It’ll keep you happy and that is important. -- Bernadette S.

There are many case studies and clinical trials which show that drinking juice can help prevent a lot of unborn illnesses and diseases; including and especially neurological development. Use natural supplements such as Juice Plus to make sure you’re taking care of yourself! Also, pressure point massages are a total win. They help with nausea and morning sickness! -- Rizwan M.

Yoga!! A healthy body paired with a healthy mind is a great way to ensure you as a whole are staying healthy. -- Chelsey H.

Take a solid prenatal, eat lots of fruit, and keep a positive mindset that you are growing a tiny human inside of you! -- Jane Ellen M.

Treat yo ‘self! :) Get plenty of movement and rest. Walk and continue to exercise by finding classes or programs that are geared toward pregnancy. And don’t be afraid to resume activities after you are cleared by your OB or midwife! Your body is strong and so are you. -- Jeannie S.

While there is a lot of emphasis made on physical health during pregnancy, a mama’s mental health is just as important! If you’re not feeling quite like yourself, please know that you are not alone. Many pregnant moms experience depression. Talk with your provider about options, including taking an antidepressant, if needed. It can be absolutely life changing. -- Amanda A.

Happiness is key! I love to dress up and look nice, but while pregnant, I found this was a bit of a challenge. So, I decided to buy a bunch of big, bold earrings and necklaces which helped me feel more like myself. I also tried out different hairstyles to make me feel more put together! -- Jenny M.

A positive outlook, working out, and eating well are all great ways to stay healthy during your pregnancy. Remember that growing a life is hard work, so be sure to give yourself grace to rest and recover as you need also!

You’ve got this, mama. One day at a time!
