We all want different things out of life. But one thing we have in common is that when we are healthy, we are more likely to accomplish our dreams and goals, and empower ourselves to live our best lives.
Would you like to be pregnant in the next year? This is a key question for your health. If the answer is no, you can take steps to make sure you don't get pregnant. If your answer is yes, then you can start planning a healthy pregnancy today. You have one life to live, and one body to live it in. Get healthy today, for a healthy tomorrow.
Health before, and in between, pregnancies
Preconception health means taking care of your own health now, so you'll be healthy for yourself and your future baby. Your health today matters for your life ahead, and for any children you may one day have. In the months before you get pregnant you can take vitamins like folic acid and check in with your medical provider about your weight and immunizations. (Taking folic acid can give you beautiful hair, nails and skin too!)
Getting pregnant may seem hard, but if you are having sex and not using an effective method of birth control, it is very likely you will get pregnant. To protect any possible baby, don't drink, use drugs or tobacco. You should also try to manage stress where you can - take slow deep breaths, a walk, or a hot bath. Take a minute for yourself every day.
Don't wait until a missed period or positive pregnancy test
We encourage all women having sex with men, and who are not using effective birth control (contraception) to treat their body as if it has a baby inside. This is because having sex without birth control means you are very likely to get pregnant - even if you just had a baby, or have had trouble getting pregnant before.
