HG Prep-min

Preparing your body is an essential step in planning for an HG pregnancy. Being as healthy as possible will give you strength to endure.

Some moms find these strategies helpful:

  • Get therapy to address trauma from previous pregnancies.
  • Take a high quality B complex prior to pregnancy to ensure adequate storage.
  • Talk to an alternative practitioner about hormone balancing, gut health, and overall toxicity.
  • Exercise to regain physical strength.
  • Detox your system.
  • Eat lots of nutrient dense foods (fruits, vegetables, legumes, nuts, whole grains) and take a high quality prenatal vitamins plus B complex for several months before you become pregnant so you have storage of essential nutrients when you are unable to eat. If you have a history of miscarriage, consider adding extra antioxidants.
  • Aim to be about 10% over your ideal body weight. Remember, too much weight gain is associated with more complications, and low body weight is associated with more hospital visits. Eating healthy is important!
