Most couples understand that good health helps ensure their unborn baby will have a good start in life, but making sure your body has a healthy balance of nutrients even before you try for a baby can make a positive difference to you and your future child.
From conception and through pregnancy
There is growing, research-based support for the idea that the health of the mother before conception can have an affect on the baby. And certainly, when you are first thinking about having a babyit's important not only to feel ready emotionally, but also physically.
Making sure you eat and drink well is important because feeling good and maintaining a healthy weight can contribute to successful conception.
In addition to this, taking a regular supplement that is specially designed for conception will help ensure you're getting what you need. For example, a supplement designed for pre-pregnancy will include folic acid which helps the baby’s neural tube develop properly. It is recommended to take folic acid for at least three months before you get pregnant.
Men take note, too. Having a healthy diet is important for male well-being and again can contribute to successful conception and the baby's health.
For women, taking Sanatogen Mother To Be or Mother To Be Plus Omega-3 from the time you want to start trying to conceive will help ensure you are getting the right nutrients. Both options are suitable to continue taking throughout your pregnancy making it easy to look after yourself.
For couples, Sanatogen Mother & Father To Be brings together a supplement for women and another for men in one handy box, so that you and your partner can both help make sure you are getting the vitamins and minerals you need.
Recovering from the birth and facing the challenges of being a new mum can take their toll on your well-being. Breastfeeding is the best possible food for your new baby and can help your body recover more quickly, but also drains your body of important resources.
During this time, you may want to consider taking a supplement like Sanatogen New Mother, which can help make sure your body's reserves are being restocked for the months ahead.
