    Prenatal care helps decrease risks during pregnancy and increase the chance of a safe and healthy delivery for the mother and child. Regular prenatal visits can help your doctor monitor your pregnancy and identify any problems or complications before they become serious.

    Prenatal care ideally starts at least three months before you begin trying to conceive. Some healthy habits to follow during this period include:

    -quitting smoking and drinking alcohol
    -taking folic acid supplements (400 to 800 micrograms)
    -talking to you doctor about your medical conditions and any dietary supplements and over-the-counter or prescription drugs that you take
    -avoiding all contact with toxic substances and chemicals at home or work that could be harmful

    Postnatal Care

    While most attention to pregnancy care focuses on the nine months of pregnancy, postnatal care is important as well. The postnatal period lasts six to eight weeks, beginning right after the baby is born.

    During this period, the mother goes through many physical and emotional changes while learning to care for her newborn. Postnatal care involves getting proper rest, nutrition, and vaginal care.

    Getting Enough Rest | Rest

    Stanford University says rest is crucial to new mothers who need to rebuild their strength. To avoid getting too tired as a new mother, you may need to:

    -sleep when your baby sleeps
    -keep your bed near your babys crib to make night feedings easier
    -allow someone else to feed the baby with a bottle while you sleep

    Eating Right | Nutrition

    Because of the changes your body goes through during pregnancy and labor, getting proper nutrition in the postnatal period is crucial. The weight that you gained during pregnancy helps make sure you have enough nutrition for breastfeeding. However, you need to continue to eat a healthy diet after delivery.

    Experts recommend that breastfeeding mothers eat when they feel hungry. Make a special effort to focus on eating when you are actually hungrynot just busy or tired.

    Try to:

    -avoid high-fat snacks
    -focus on eating low-fat foods that balance protein, carbohydrates, and fruits and vegetables
    -drink plenty of fluids

    Vaginal Care | Vaginal Care

    New mothers should make vaginal care an essential part of their postnatal care. You may experience:

    -vaginal soreness if you had a tear during delivery
    -urination problems, such as pain or a frequent urge to urinate
    -discharge, including small blood clots
    -contractions during the first few days after delivery

    Schedule a checkup with your doctor about six weeks after delivery to discuss symptoms and receive proper treatment. You abstain from sexual intercourse for four to six weeks after delivery so that your vagina has proper time to heal.
