Pregnancy Management

If you’re pregnant or thinking of becoming pregnant, you may be experiencing a whole lot of different emotions all at once. While it’s normal to feel excitement, anticipation, trepidation or any number of other emotions upon finding out you’re expecting a child, it can be extremely helpful to have an experienced professional in your support network along each step of the way.

The team at Doylestown Women’s Health Center offers pregnancy guidance, medical care, and support along every step of the way to help ensure that you have a healthy pregnancy and baby. Our goal is to provide our patients with proper pregnancy management from conception through delivery.

Staying Healthy Throughout Pregnancy

Maintaining optimal health throughout your pregnancy is vital, both for your own health and that of your unborn child. You should begin taking prenatal vitamins upon finding out you’re pregnant. But, first, talk to your obstetrician about any other vitamins, minerals or medications you are already taking to ensure they won’t interact negatively with one another. Some other important pregnancy tips you should commit to memory include:

  • Consume foods high in protein, calcium and iron
  • Exercise at least 5 days per week, for 30 minutes
  • Avoid consuming foods that contain mercury (common in some types of fish)
  • Do not drink, smoke or use illicit drugs
  • Avoid coming into contact with pesticides, cleaning products and other substances high in chemicals that could potentially harm you or your baby

A good rule of thumb to follow is to avoid any substance, activity or environment that could be harmful to your or your unborn child. If in doubt, avoid it, as it’s not worth the risk.
