Hi there! I am a freelance writer who lives and breaths content on a daily basis. I consider myself to be a living paradox. An old soul trapped in a modern world.

Pregnancy is one of the greatest and priceless moments in every couple’s life. Nothing is more fulfilling than knowing that a new life is created that needs to be nurtured, loved, and cared for. However, every pregnancy is different. Some experience an effortless, easy pregnancy while there are others who have a hard time due to morning sickness or complications. Whatever these differences may be, the important thing is for the mother to be healthy and happy while carrying the child inside her womb.

Here are some tips for every moms-to-be that will surely make every pregnancy happy, healthy, and more exciting.

1. Stay Positive and Be Happy

They always say when a mother is happy during her pregnancy, the baby will most likely be a happy person too. There’s no point in dwelling at negative, stressful, or depressive thoughts.

Your whole pregnancy experience is supposed to be a joyous moment in your life so as much as possible, keep yourself in a positive mood and always put a smile on your face.

2. Bond With Your Baby

Having a baby is one of life’s greatest gifts so make sure you are able to bond with your baby even while inside your womb. Take some time off, relax, and clear your mind of negative things even for a few minutes. Lie down comfortably, massage your belly and listen to classical music that soothes you.

Talk to your baby and tell him/her how excited you are. You’ll be surprised how the baby will respond every time you do this.

3. Take Care of Your Skin

Pregnancy changes a woman’s body. Skin discoloration, warts, acne, and even stretch marks may occur when a woman is pregnant.

Do not allow this to happen while giving the “I’m pregnant” excuse since there are a lot of ways to prevent these.

You may apply cocoa butter lotion to prevent stretch marks. Do not forget to moisturize since there are a lot of products, both natural and commercially-made, that are safe to use. And of course, a healthy diet also helps in making the skin smooth and supple too.

4. Exercise

Contrary to belief, exercise during pregnancy is healthy. In fact, there are several prenatal exercises that are designed for pregnant women such as shoulder roll, arm and shoulder stretch, pelvic rock, knee press, ankle rotation, and even brisk walking. But the key to this is to NOT overdo it. Just do the exercises moderately and take rests in between sets.

And avoid activities that can potentially harm you and your baby such as lifting weights and running.

5. Healthy Diet

If you want a healthy baby, then maintaining a healthy diet is very important during pregnancy. It is important to drink at least 8 glasses of water every day to prevent dehydration and maintain the balance of body fluids. Eat lots of fruits and vegetables and drink the prenatal vitamins prescribed by the doctor.

Avoid excessive intake of salt, soda, junk food, or any fattening food since it will not give you the right amount of nutrition. Remember, a healthy mommy means a healthy baby too.

Every child is a blessing. It’s no wonder that having a baby is one of the best feelings and greatest gift life has to offer. Nothing will give you joy than being able to see your little one for the first time. While every pregnancy may be different and the experiences vary from one mother to another, each parent-to-be will always share a common denominator: the fulfillment of being able to carry out a new life in this world.

That is why as much as possible, every couple makes the most out of the 9-month journey, taking every step slowly and making sure that they are prepared when the due date comes.
