However, it should be taken into account that these complications that you will suffer from during pregnancy can be prevented.

The most important thing to remember to have an overall good functional health pattern is to relax. Being stressed most of the time may harm the baby that you are carrying in your womb. Relaxing also helps counter the effects wrought about by the many stressors of pregnancy. If you are able to get very relaxed both in your mind and body, you will no longer have any fears, tensions or pains. This is very helpful since fears, tensions and/or pain can cause you to need to take certain drugs that can be harmful to you and your baby. Practice relaxing all the time in a deep and serious manner. You can go to certain yoga classes and/or meditate in your house to avoid the many stressors that could harm you and your baby.

Begin by finding a comfortable position, such as lying on your side with your top leg supported by pillows or sitting as if in a contour chair supported by pillows (a recliner also works, if you have one). If you are working with a coach, have him read this to you. “Close your eyes. Take a nice, deep breath and let it out slowly. Take another slow breath, and release. One more breath, and as you let it go, imagine yourself standing under a gentle waterfall. Feel your head relax as the water touches it.

Feel the water run down over your neck and shoulders, as they release and relax. The water flows down your arms and off the tips of your fingers, drawing the worries of the day away. As the water cascades over your chest and belly, feel how your baby relaxes as you let go. Water flows down your legs, your feet, and off your toes, leaving your entire body loose, limp, and relaxed. Having a healthy diet is also a good factor in keeping yourself relaxed as possible.

Researching Information

Try to attend classes that specialize in childbearing scenarios. The people in these classes are professionals, and they are able to offer you proper information on how to be fit and healthy in your pregnancy. You can also make a birth plan along with your doctor or nearest health professional (midwife, nurse etc.). You can bring some copies of the birth plan that you made when you are already undergoing labor.

If you find certain exercises being suggested to you by doctors as a bit stressful, then try to be flexible. Take into account, that there is a reason as to why these procedures were suggested in the first place. However if there is already too much pain in performing a procedure, then consult a professional for alternatives. Donít forget to always ask plenty of questions if there is something in a procedure you do not understand. You are the only person who is responsible for your baby, not your doctor or other health professional.
