TOP 5 TIPS FOR YOUR FIRST TRIMESTER

The first trimester can be both an exciting and scary time for any newly pregnant woman. It’s an important time and critical time in the pregnancy when the mother’s job is to focus on her health and the health of her growing child.

Our list of tips will help new moms get through these first 3 months and pave the way for a smooth rest of the pregnancy.

1. Find your healthcare provider

Finding the right healthcare provider, be it an OB/Gyn or a midwife, is vital to ensure you and your growing baby are healthy throughout your entire pregnancy. It is recommended that pregnant mothers see a healthcare provider once a month the first six months of pregnancy for prenatal care, so make sure you trust your doctor and he or she makes you feel comfortable. If you don’t have an OB/Gyn or pregnancy health care provider, ask your primary care physician, family, friends, or colleagues to recommend one.

2. Eat healthy and stay hydrated

According to the American Pregnancy Association, pregnant mothers must keep their bodies well hydrated as your blood volume increases to support two bodies. Consuming quality fluids is essential for both you and your baby’s health. It also helps prevent fatigue, constipation, and preterm labor. Pregnant mothers should eat healthy, nutrient-rich food throughout pregnancy. That’s not to say you shouldn’t give in to the occasional ice cream craving, but keep the leafy greens close by as well.

3. Budget for baby

Buying each and every fun and new thing for baby sounds great…and those tiny clothes are definitely adorable and tempting. But it’s important to set a budget for your maternity and baby needs. Borrowing items such as strollers or cribs, or accepting the generosity of friends and family, is a wonderful option. Try to stick to a budget – there can be plenty of surprise costs down the road.

4. Prenatal health

Without effective prenatal care, mothers face higher risk of encountering prenatal, childbirth and postpartum complications. Mothers who receive late or no prenatal care are more likely to give birth to babies with health ailments. In addition, be sure to ask your doctor or healthcare provider about what the right prenatal vitamin is for you. This is also time to think about your baby’s cognitive development. A safe, simple curriculum like BabyPlus Prenatal Education System has been shown to help your baby’s chances of being self-soothing, attentive, curious, and of reaching important infant development milestones in the strongest way.

5. REST

It is normal for newly pregnant mothers to feel fatigued. Go to bed early, take naps when you need them. You need more rest and sleep as your body changes to accommodate your growing child. Your energy is being used elsewhere – let your partner, close friends and family pamper you! You won’t have much time for sleep, peace, and quiet later on.

If you have questions on how BabyPlus can be a wonderful prenatal tool to encourage healthy prenatal cognitive development, let us know!

TOP BABY SHOWER GIFT IDEAS

Coming up with ideas for your own baby shower registry or looking for a sweet, but practical, gift for a new parent-to-be in your life? Look no further than the list below! We’ve compiled ideas for gifts that will be appreciated and welcomed before and after that little one arrives.

Books

Adorable baby clothes and tiny baby shoes will warm your heart and are wonderful gifts. However, those sweet baby clothes are often outgrown quicker than anyone believes. Books are the perfect, evergreen gift. Sharing a favorite book from childhood, a prenatal education book, or perhaps something you treasured reading to your little one, are priceless. A good book will be long-enjoyed by parents and baby – even when ‘baby’ is all grown up.

Gifts for Mom

We focus so much on gifts for the little one, we sometimes forget about mom! Prenatal massages, pedicures, tickets to sporting events or shows for a pre-baby date night are all great gifts that mom can enjoy. Or, if you want to add something extra, arrange for a deep house cleaning while mom is out being pampered. Whatever the gift, make sure it’s something that fits her personality – giving her that little bit of extra love can go a long way.

Gift cards

At first, gift cards may seem impersonal, but they can actually be a wonderfully useful gift for new families. A large gift card to a local baby store or a larger retailer can be a huge help as the baby grows and the family’s needs change –prenatal vitamins, diapers and other baby necessities are expensive! More general, non-store specific cards can be used for necessities like gas or extras that a growing family will need.

Diapers

This may seem obvious, but most moms agree that you need far more diapers than you think you’ll need. And even moms who decide to cloth diaper could use an extra few on hand.

Your Favorites

If you’re a parent yourself, consider buying things you loved having during pregnancy and just after. If you and your baby benefited from it, your friend likely will as well. A BabyPlus Prenatal Education System is a wonderful gift as it allows mom-to-be to help grow and develop baby’s mind and cognitive health while strengthening baby’s body. Considering the long-term benefits, BabyPlus will be a gift to both mom and baby long after the birth.

LESSONS FROM NINE MONTHS INSIDE THE WOMB

When does learning begin? Some people say they remember their first day at a daycare center, or have flashes of moments as a baby. However, research on fetal origins suggest that a child do start to distinguish impressions, particularly sound, while still in the mothers’ womb.

What can a fetus learn in a span of nine months while inside the womb? British physician David Baker hypothesized that mothers are already teaching their babies important lessons on survival during this critical stage, and these include:
1.Food. Experiments performed suggest that babies at weaning take easily to the food that they have been exposed to from what their mothers liked to eat while pregnant, or from the flavors familiar to them through their mother’s breastmilk.
2. Trust. Since the mother’s voice is the most audible sound that the fetus can hear, it is not surprising that, upon birth, it is the only sound that could calm the child, or the sound to which it would respond in a trusting way.
3.Expectations. Mothers expose themselves to many different impressions during pregnancy—the air she breathes, the food and drink she consumes, the impact of thought and emotions—all these are somehow passed on to the fetus in their womb; these impressions may form the matrix upon which the child growing up will build to form his or her own survival tools.

These are some of the crucial ideas that babies are said to absorb even before they are born. Some studies even suggest that that these early impressions may hold the answers as to why people become who they are as adults.
