This website is to help women that are either trying to get pregnant or are pregnant. This website is here to help with questions and answers and to give information that may help you in this exciting time.

When you have found out that you are pregnant, there are a lot of things you need to know. Sometimes just knowing where to start and which information you can trust can be a challenge.

On the following pages you will find out information of the various tests and scans you will need, what is safe for both you and your baby and what are the best lifestyle changes you might need to make to have a healthy pregnancy and baby.

We also have information on how your baby will develop and grow over the next nine months and also some of the common issues that most women encounter during their pregnancy.

Healthy Eating

A healthy diet is an important part of a healthy lifestyle at any time, but especially vital if you’re pregnant or planning a pregnancy.

Healthy eating keeps you feeling good and gives your baby the essential nutrients they need in utero.

Travelling While Pregnant

With the proper precautions, and armed with information on when to travel, vaccinations and insurance, most women can travel safely well into their pregnancy.

Wherever you go, locate healthcare facilities at your destination and take your medical records with you.

Exercising During Pregnancy

Doing regular physical activity has health benefits during pregnancy and also helps to prepare the body for childbirth.

However, it is important to modify or choose a suitable exercise program because pregnancy affects the body’s response to exercise.
