Hello ladies! let’s have a quick chat
You’re pregnant now, wow, congrats!
Go to the pharmacy and get your vitamins
Take folic acid daily, please by all means
Avoid taking drugs without prescription
Don’t come anywhere close to X-radiation
Register early for antenatal care
Never miss any appointment, my dear
Pay attention to the things you eat
This is not the time for junks and sweet
Fruits and vegetables will prevent constipation
Drink lots of water to avoid dehydration
Eat bit by bit, avoid heavy meals at night
Prop up your pillows, so you can sleep tight
Don’t sit for too long, try to exercise
Talk short walks and do Kegel’s exercise
Know the flag signs; don’t take things for granted:
Continuous pain and bleeding are not expected.
Notice the rate at which your baby is kicking
If this decreases, seek help, but no panicking.
When you feel labour pains, consult your doctor
So that you won’t be delivered by a bus conductor!
