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.

Weeks 1-12

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.
