You're pregnant, congratulations! Whether you have been tracking your pregnancy through fertility assistance, or you have found out naturally along the way; taking care of yourself and your baby for a safer pregnancy begins immediately.
Find out below some important factors to remember when tracking your first trimester of pregnancy. (Note: we are currently applying for funding to help us make this section interactive for an easier experience).
Did you know?
Increasing your folate intake during the first trimester is important to help prevent birth defects known as neural tube defects, such as spina bifida.
Your baby is the size of a grape by 9 weeks gestation
Your baby's placenta is forming. An important organ that acts as a lifeline between you and your baby. At scans you can ask where your placenta is positioned - anterior or posterior - as this may impact when you start to feel baby move.
It is highly reccomended to avoid smoking and drinking during pregnancy for the safety of you and your baby.
