The first few months are really crucial, and utmost care should be taken then, also eat only healthy and nutritious food, which will be good for the baby as well.

Smile Balanced diet before & during pregnancy


Breads & Cereals
: These include rice, chapatiis, pasta, bread , porridge etc. You should consume at least 5-6 servings of different cereals in a day . One serving amounts to 1 cha
patii/ 1 cup of cooked rice or pasta / 1 cup of cornflakes/ half a cup of cooked porridge or 2 sweet biscuits. It is advisable that you stick to whole grain options rather than the refined flour because whole grains also provide you with dietary fibre that slows down the rate at which sugar is absorbed into your bloodstream & also prevents constipation.

Fruits & Vegetables : These include fresh fruits/ dried fruits / frozen fruits & fruit juices. Similarly vegetables can be consumed raw/ steamed / or cooked. One serving of fruit would be 1 apple/banana/pear/orange etc. or 2 small apricots or plums/ half a cup fruit salad or 1 cup fruit juice or 2 tbsp dried fruit. Having whole fruit is always a better idea, as it provides fibre that helps in relieving constipation. One serving of vegetable means half a cup of cooked vegetable/ mix veg. salad.

Milk & Milk products
: These include milk, cheese, curd, yoghurt, buttermilk and other milk products. You should consume at least 3-4 servings of milk/ milk products daily. One serving means 250 ml glass of milk/ 150 gm yoghurt/ 2 slices of cheese/ 2 scoops of ice cream.

Legumes, Nuts, Eggs, Poultry, Fish, Lean meat- Take two servings per day. One serving includes- one egg / one medium fillet of fish/one chicken leg/ 3/4th cup cooked dried beans, peas, lentils or pulses/ half cup nuts or seeds (flax seeds, sunflower seeds or others)

Fats & oils Ė Consume sparingly only. You donít need to completely avoid any fat or butter because some amount of it is necessary for absorption of fat-soluble vitamins also, but donít overindulge yourself and prefer unsaturated fats found in natural foods like fish, avocado, sunflower, olive oil etc over the saturated fats & the fats found in processed foods.

You should also ensure that you do not consume more than an equivalent of 5 gm/one teaspoon of table salt in a day, as excess salt can cause water retention & electrolyte imbalance apart from weight gain.

Smile Common High Risk Pregnancy Factors

Common High Risk Pregnancy Factors

Maternal Age:- One of the most common risk factors for a high-risk pregnancy is the age of the mother-to-be. Women who will be under age 17 or over age 35 when their baby is due are at greater risk of complications than those between their late teens and early 30s. The risk of miscarriage and genetic defects further increases after age 40.

Medical conditions that exist before pregnancy:- Conditions such as high blood pressure; breathing, kidney, or heart problems; diabetes; autoimmune disease; sexually transmitted diseases (STD); or chronic infections such as human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) can present risks for the mother and/or her unborn baby. A history of miscarriage, problems with a previous pregnancy or pregnancies, or a family history of genetic disorders are also risk factors for a high-risk pregnancy.If you have a medical condition, itís important to consult your doctor before you decide to become pregnant. Your doctor may run tests, adjust medications, or advise you of precautions you need to take to optimize the health of you and your baby.Medical conditions that occur during pregnancy. Even if you are healthy when you become pregnant, it is possible to develop or be diagnosed with problems during pregnancy that can affect you and your baby.

Two of the more common pregnancy-related problems are:

1.Preeclampsia is a syndrome that includes high blood pressure, urinary protein, and swelling; it can be dangerous or even fatal for the mother or baby if not treated. With proper management, however, most women who develop preeclampsia have healthy babies.

2.Gestational Diabetes is a type of diabetes that develops during pregnancy. Women with gestational diabetes may have healthy pregnancies and babies if they follow the treatment plan from their health-care provider. Usually the diabetes resolves after delivery. However women with gestational diabetes are at increased risk of developing type diabetes.
