  • To ensure you have a happy and healthy pregnancy and childbirth it is worth considering the following points:
  • Check you have had a Rubella (German Measles) vaccination
  • Keep up to date with your cervical smears. If you are trying for a baby, have a smear to avoid the need of having one during pregnancy
  • Try and retain your ideal weight. This helps both during and after your pregnancy.
  • Cut down on alcohol consumption, as this can affect your baby’s health
  • If you smoke, try, for the baby’s sake, to stop during your pregnancy . It may be the opportunity to stop altogether!
  • Eat sensibly and healthily but take certain precautions:
  • Avoid soft, unpasteurised cheese; patê and cooked chilled foods
  • A supplement of Vitamin B - Folic Acid - is good for your developing baby. Folic acid is also found in green leaf vegetables, fruit, nuts, wholemeal bread and rice
