A collection of tips and quotes sent in by London Mums on pregnancy and birth. Priceless!

“Talk to your health visitor or doctor about how much weight you should gain during your pregnancy.”

“Eat foods rich in folate, iron, calcium, and protein, or get these nutrients through a prenatal supplement.”

“Talk to your health visitor before taking any supplements.”

“Eat breakfast every day.”

“Eat high-fiber foods and drink plenty of water to avoid constipation.”

“Avoid alcohol, raw fish (no sushi!! I desperately desired a sushi for 9 months), fish high in mercury, soft cheeses such as brie.”

“Aim to do at least 30 minutes of moderate activity on most days of the week. Talk to your health visitor before you begin. If you have done a lot of sport before then it should be ok. I was advised not to do yoga in the first 3 months of pregnancy but my yoga teacher had known me for 6 years so i did not need to stop my yoga practice. It is a fantastic exercise and it really keeps you flexible throughout. I did the shoulder stand until the very last day before giving birth.”

“After you deliver your baby, continue eating well. Return to a healthy weight gradually.”

“Slowly get back to your routine of regular, moderate physical activity. But do not forget the pelvic floor exercises.”

“Take pleasure in the miracles of pregnancy and birth.”
