Nuts such as Walnut, Badam and Dry fruits such as fig, dates, raisins can be consumed daily but in less quantity. Otherwise, the fats in those can make you obese and increase your cholesterol level

Pre-Conception Health before planning pregnancy!

Pregnancy is one of the most precious blessings! As our lifestyle and the food habits changed a lot, people who are waiting for the appointment of fertility center increase holding various reasons and health conditions.

Do you want to add a cute little human as your family Member?
Then, ensure that your Pre-Conception health is in good condition to give birth to a healthy child. Yes! Couple health is the first and the most important factor for a safer pregnancy. Not only physical health but also mental health plays a significant role in producing good hormones during conception. If you are sad or depressed often, your body will start secreting more stress hormones than the good hormones. This will impact your pregnancy a lot and there is a risk of miscarriage.

Before we start with the things we need to know, one should understand that having trouble in getting pregnant is common for both men and women. It is not always about the women as our culture blames women for not getting pregnant. Both men and women should have proper health conditions added with happy mindset.
Here, we suggest some guidelines to follow before you are planning for pregnancy.

1. Folic Acid matters the most!

Once you and your partner are ready for being pregnant, try to consume food richer with multivitamins especially zinc and Folic acid. Folic acid is very important for the baby’s brain development and it can reduce the risk of neural tube defects and other birth complications.

Vegetables such as cauliflower, broccoli, spinach and Nuts include walnut which has Omega-3, badam and fruits such as oranges, other citrus fruits and country hen egg are foods which contain more folic acid. Also, you can take some raisins and pumpkin seeds daily to increase the zinc intake.

Women can take 0.4mg of folic acid daily prior 3 months to get pregnant either in the form of tablets or in the form of foods which we mentioned above

2. Limit Caffeine Consumption

Drinking coffee or other drinks with more caffeine content should be curbed. As caffeine stimulates miscarriage and lowers fertility, you can avoid taking coffee more than 200mg per day.

Moreover, caffeine also increase the blood pressure and heart rate. Also, it will not allow your body to absorb sufficient iron from foods you consume. This might lead to anaemia. Hence, it is not advisable to take more caffeine during the entire pregnancy.

In addition, a pregnant woman should stop drinking and smoking during pregnancy as these could cause troubles in your infant’s growth

3. Check medications

When you are planning for a healthy pregnancy, you should check certain medicines you are taking for a long time for other health problems. Some hormone balancing tablets and medicines related to mental health such as antidepressants can affect your pregnancy. If you are taking any of these type of medicines, consult your doctor and confirm whether it is okay to continue with the medications or not.

4. Address previous miscarriage

If you have experienced any miscarriage last time, first you have to take some time to heal yourself and try to solve the things which are gone wrong last time. In addition, you have to address this to your gynecologist to ensure that you can plan for another baby if the miscarriage happened in recent months. This is to avoid any other complications which could hurt you more as you are already emotional.

5. Contribution of Paternal factors

Sperm count or better quality sperm of biological father matters too. Good quality sperms can improve the chance of getting pregnant and minimize the risk of development complications in the infants.

Overweight, poorly controlled diabetes, heavy alcohol consumption, smoking and recreational drugs can affect the sperm count and its quality. Try to avoid these atleast 2 months before your conception because it might take upto 72 days for a sperm to develop and mature

6. Vaccination

If you need to take any vaccine at this stage, just get vaccinated before you plan your pregnancy. This is because if you don’t take vaccines at a regular interval, your infant may get infections from you during pregnancy. Also, if you take any vaccine, then wait for a month from that day to plan pregnancy. It would avoid any other risk factors and complications

Bottom Line

Apart from all these healthy guidelines, another most important aspect is to be happy and free from stress. This is the key ingredient which will help you to grow a happy baby in your womb. Have a healthy and a happy pregnancy!
