Exercise can help you recover quicker from labor and help you lose the baby weight you gained during your pregnancy. Eating a variety of healthy food can provide you with the nutrition you need to raise a healthy baby. Eating fish is a healthy choice but be mindful of the amount of mercury that it contains, sushi for instance contains high amounts of mercury. Making sure you ingest enough calories is important for the growth of the baby. Pregnant women should ingest 300 more calories per day to make sure your baby is getting the proper nutritional requirements.
