3 Great Preventive Tips for a Healthy Pregnancy

By Genevieve Cunningham

Pregnancy is confusing. It’s exciting and fun … and also super painful and stressful. It’s one of the strangest times of your life, and yet, women keep on going through it for the sweet little blessing at the end. Believe it or not, there are some things that you can do to make your pregnancy more enjoyable. First, take care of your health! To get you started, check out these three preventive tips for a healthy nine months.

Get Your Nutrients

It’s never been more important for you to fuel your body with the right foods. You’re not only supplying your own body with vitamins, but you’re literally growing another person who also needs proper nutrition in order to grow. Cravings can take their toll throughout pregnancy, but with a plan, you can stay on track. Stick to fresh fruits and veggies and don’t forget your vitamins in order to stay as healthy as possible.


Regular exercise can keep your weight gain under control, boost your overall health, and even increase your energy levels throughout your pregnancy. Some great workouts for pregnant women include:

  • Prenatal Yoga - Deep stretching, calm breathing, and stress relief. It’s the perfect exercise for those experiencing the stresses of pregnant life. Find a class at your local gym or studio and enjoy!

  • Walking - It’s low impact, but it still works the body. It can be done during any trimester (as long as it’s OK with your doctor), and it’s easily adaptable. Just put on your walking shoes and get moving.

Chiropractic Care

This is growing in popularity amongst pregnant women. Chiropractors focus on proper alignment of the spine, which can alleviate many of the symptoms that come along with pregnancy including pain in the body, sciatica, headaches, fatigue, and many others. While it is incredibly beneficial before, during, and even after pregnancy, many women still wonder about safety. Rest assured that chiropractic care has been deemed safe for all people, including pregnant women, children, and your unborn child.

While diet and exercise can be managed on your own, you’ll definitely need the help of a professional when it comes to chiropractic care. If you think chiropractic care might be a good idea in your life, visit with chiropractors at The Joint. Walk-in visits, affordable pricing, and friendly doctors are all a part of the experience. Protect your health and make this nine months as comfortable as possible by getting to The Joint as soon as today.
