Seek Medical Attention

Many of the injuries that occur when you slip, and fall are relatively minor. However, broken bones, internal injuries, and head trauma are not uncommon, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. It is extremely important to seek medical attention as soon as possible after the accident to not only keep you out of immediate peril, but to obtain, in writing, a professional diagnosis of the initial injuries you sustained from the accident.

Pregnancy should be an exciting time, but it also places a strain on your body. By eating a healthy diet, watching your weight and staying active, your pregnancy can be far more pleasant.

As HARTMANN Direct highlight, making small changes to your diet can have a positive impact on your body. Before you make any changes, perhaps have a chat with your GP first if you have any existing medical conditions or are unsure about what needs to change.

  • #1 Folic Acid

If you plan on getting pregnant in the next 12 months, you want to make sure that your diet is rich in folic acid and this means being proactive about increasing your intake of it.

You can take supplements and there is a growing range of pre-natal vitamins but if you prefer the natural approach, eating folic acid-rich foods in your diet is relatively simple. Folic acid is found on whole grains, cereals, vegetables and citrus fruits.

Pre-pregnancy you should be aiming for a folic acid intake of 400 to 600mg, increasing it to 800mg during pregnancy to minimise the risk of birth defects.

Get Plenty of Rest

This might seem like an impossible task when you have a newborn baby. But ensuring you get enough rest is an essential part of healing, and being able to cope with this brand new situation. You could lean on your partner or friends and family at this time. Even if they can help with cooking and cleaning, it leaves you free to focus on recovery and looking after your baby. Having too much to do could easily leave you feeling overwhelmed, and so accept help from loved ones if they’re willing to give it. This will give you more time to rest in preparation for everything you have ahead of you.
