Spring has sprung! As flowers, birds, bees, and trees poise for this season of renewal, some women have special news to share… that they’re expecting a new little one. Whether it’s you who have “sprung the news” lately or someone you love, each mother-to-be has one thing in common”: her baby’s health is priority number one!
Pregnancy is an interesting time, and many women try to learn all they can about healthy habits and how to live well as two. When you’re pregnant, you’re focusing so much energy on nurturing someone you haven’t really met yet! Each little connection with baby is precious, from knowing that everything you eat and drink helps nourish your child, to feeling those first flutters later develop into big kicks.
While there’s a wealth of information for moms-to-be to absorb, here are three common and easy recommendations to remember:
Get recommended prenatal checkups. Ask your healthcare practitioner what’s best for you and your baby. He or she can help you stay as healthy as possible for your own sake and for your baby’s. You can find out about healthy weight gain, recommended screenings, changes and stages of pregnancy, options for delivery, and much more.
Eat healthy foods. When you’re pregnant, it’s more vital than ever to eat a variety of healthy foods, including fruits, vegetables, lean proteins, and whole grains. Your healthcare practitioner may recommend eating several smaller meals and snacks throughout the day rather than three larger meals. He or she can give you details on the unique nutritional needs of pregnancy, plus food safety advice. Some expecting women also choose to consume organic and non-GMO ingredients when possible.
Take a prenatal multivitamin. One great choice is whole-food cultured Perfect Prenatal ® multivitamin from New Chapter ®, which is formulated especially for moms-to-be. Perfect Prenatal is certified made with organic vegetables and herbs, and delivers a cultured blend of nutrients and whole foods selected to support a healthy pregnancy.* Every serving provides pregnancy-essential nutrients, including Vitamin D3, Iron, and Folate.* Perfect Prenatal is also Non-GMO Project verified.

Perfect Prenatal also be a great gift if the mom-to-be is someone you love. New Chapter conveniently offers a trimester size, delivering a full 90-day supply, plus a free subscription to Fit Pregnancy magazine…perfect!
So, congratulations to you or your loved one! With spring known as a time of rejuvenation and growth, we wish you a happy, healthy season “…and pregnancy!
