Trying for a baby

CoupleDeciding to have a baby is a really exciting time and you will be thinking about many aspects of your life. However, you may also take a look at your lifestyle and think about making some changes to your diet. This section will provide you with some useful information to make sure that your body is well prepared for pregnancy.

It is particularly important that your diet and lifestyle are healthy when you are trying for a baby and during pregnancy. This is because your eating and lifestyle habits not only influence your own health and fertility, but can also affect your growing baby. If you are planning on having a baby, this is a great chance for you to change your lifestyle and eating habits before your family grows.
