Creating a baby together is a miracle that will change your life forever. In just a few weeks your baby grows from just two cells into a miniature person…and your mothering journey has already begun! To give your baby the best opportunity in life, it’s important to take good care of your body, both before and after you fall pregnant. The most important things bear in mind are:

  • Eat a well-balanced, nutritious diet.
  • Avoid alcohol.
  • Try to reach your goal weight.
  • Start a good regular exercise programme.
  • Know your HIV status.
