Tips to have a healthy pregnancy after infertility

Women who have previously experienced infertility are at a higher risk for some pregnancy complications. For example, women who struggled to conceive are at a higher risk for premature labor. Most women who take fertility drugs and treatment are at an increased odds of getting pregnant with multiples, some women after infertility are expecting twins and even triplets.

There are steps you can take to enjoy a healthy pregnancy after infertility. These are:

  1. Give up Unhealthy Habits

During pregnancy or after infertility, it becomes even more important to drop any unhealthy habits that you have. If you like smoking, try to quit it for your optimal health. Drinking is another habit that you must give up for a healthy pregnancy. Talk to your doctor if you need help. Apart from these, try limiting your desserts and snack on nuts, fruits, veggies, and protein.

  1. Get enough Rest

It is important to get enough sleep during pregnancy. If you have a twin pregnancy, it becomes even more important. Studies have shown that women who don’t get enough sleep are at a higher risk for preterm birth. Sometimes, pregnancy may be the reason for poor sleep. Invest in lots of pillows for support and comfort. Take naps through the day if you are unable to sleep well at night.

  1. Pay attention to Nutrition

Good nutrition has been connected to healthier pregnancies. It is important to eat right and enough when you’re carrying. When pregnant with multiples, make sure you eat more protein and calories. Speak to your doctor about how much to aim for each day. With the babies pushing up and allowing less room for a full stomach, women pregnant with twins may have trouble eating much at one meal. Try spacing your meals and eat six or eight small ones through the day. Don’t forget to take your prenatal multivitamins.

  1. Stay Hydrated

Dehydration can cause contractions, which may lead to premature labor. This risk is higher for those carrying multiples. Drinking enough when you’re carrying two or more babies isn’t always easy. One of the best ways to remember to drink is to carry a water bottle everywhere you go. This will act as reminder to drink up even when you get busy with other things.

  1. Choose a good Doctor

When you go for a fertility treatment, do your research when looking for a doctor. If you’ve conceived twins or more after a successful fertility treatment, an expert, high-risk doctor can help ease your pregnancy. Make sure you ask around for reference or choose someone well experienced who has a history of handling complications or high-risk pregnancies. Our doctors at KIMS Cuddles have years of experience in this regard.

Make sure you take proper care and precaution to enjoy a healthy pregnancy after infertility. The doctors at KIMS Cuddles will always be by your side to guide you on what’s best for you and your baby.
