Pregnancy Health

If you are now pregnant (or are trying to get pregnant), prenatal care in pregnancy, with special attention on your health, is of utmost importance.  

Find out more about how to prepare your body for pregnancy and about how to stay healthy once pregnant.  For example, did you know that you not only need to take folic acid while pregnant--you should really start to take this and a full prenatal vitamin prior to pregnancy in order to ensure the right health and nutrition for your growing baby?  

Find out more about the importance of folic acid and other nutrients you need for your pregnancy by reading more about how to maintain great pregnancy health.  

Iron is also particularly important during pregnancy. Because of a drastically increased blood volume, iron deficiency is common in pregnant women.

Iron deficiency can cause a variety of symptoms including fatigue, weakness, irregular heartbeat and even irritability. Luckily, iron supplements are an easy addition to your prenatal regimen.

Thanks for sharing nice information for health care and you have done a good job. Really, I believe that a balance diet refers to the intake of appropriate and adequate amount of foods and drinks that supply nutrient and energy to the body for maintenance of body cells, tissues and organs that support the normal growth and development of the body. Healthy foods and a balanced diet can significantly improve workplace productivity across the board. Forklift training Toronto

Hi, I am off the pill since 2 June 2011, (it is now 3 July), I haven't had a period since. I haven't done a pregnancy test yet either. In the past 2 days I have been experiencing itchy nipples and slightly tender breasts, but that's about all. I've read that it could take up to 3 months to get a period after stopping the pill. Could the symptoms just be the onset of a period? I'm very nervous about taking a test... Don't want it to be negative! :)
