Get in Shape Prior to Pregnancy

The American Dietetic Association issued a position paper today highlighting the need for woman to get in shape and be a healthy weight prior to pregnancy to decrease the risk of gestational diabetes, pre eclampsia and neural tube defects.

I found eating well and being active prior and during pregnancy really helps, you feel so much better and recover faster. Pre natal yoga was awesome. Also small meals and often helped, lots of fruits and vegetables and good home cooked meals. Remember when the little one arrives you will lead by example!

For tips feel free to message me or Sweta my other RD blogger buddy!!
