Your baby’s physical development relies on a healthy diet and lifestyle. Just think of your baby as a sponge; their body will absorb anything you put in yours.
Talk to your doctor if you develop discomfort and symptoms or strange cravings. Seek an advocate or support system to attend doctor appointments with you.
Learn the sex of your baby if you choose to and take advantage of tests to ensure your baby is healthy.
Your baby is the size of a grapefruit; ask all the questions because there is no such thing as a dumb question.
Time to get a doula or a support person to be present during labor and delivery.
Plan for delivery and create a birth plan with your doula or support team.
You’re producing milk now, and it’s time to find a lactation consultant to create a breastfeeding plan.
Prepare for your baby’s arrival by learning how to safely sleep them.
You may experience false contractions, so rely on your doula and doctor to help know when it’s time to head to the hospital. Congratulations on delivering a healthy baby!
