Preparing your body for baby

So you’ve made the decision to have a baby… now what? Prior to conception, it’s a good idea to take a look at what’s going on with your body. While taking care of yourself is always a good idea, when you’ve got a baby on your mind, it becomes all the more important. Here are five quick tips to jumpstart your body’s readiness for baby:


  1. Get current on all of your vaccines.

  2. Ensure any chronic health conditions are under control.

  3. Discuss with your doctor any medications or supplements you may be taking.

  4. Kick up the water-drinking habit.

  5. Maintain a well-balanced diet.
