First pregnancy tip: nutrition
There are many myths about nutrition – especially when it is about nutrition during pregnancy. Don't worry, you don't have to give up everything delicious. If you stick to a few rules, you can eat a very tasty, balanced and varied diet. In principle, the same applies as if you are not pregnant.
Healthy foods are above all Vegetables and fruit, high-fiber whole grain products, healthy oils, fish, meat, rice, potatoes and much more. A healthy diet should generally be an important point. Especially during pregnancy it is essential to pay attention to a few important points. In the worst case, a lack of vitamins can affect the development of your unborn child.
The following vitamins are important for your pregnancy: Folic acid, vitamin C, vitamins B1, B2, B6 and vitamin D. A healthy and balanced diet also includes minerals such as:
magnesium, zinc, calcium, iron and iodine. You can get most of the vitamins and minerals through food.

Second pregnancy tip: folic acid
In addition to a healthy diet, exercise and regular breaks, vitamins are also very important. As a soon-to-be mom, you should pay particular attention to the folic acid balance.
Folic acid is a B vitamin (B9) that is necessary for all cell division and cell growth processes, as well as for the growth of maternal tissue. Since the B vitamin is very sensitive and a lot is lost through heat and preparation, it is advisable to take it in the form of dietary supplements. And your baby will also benefit enormously from the extra portion of folic acid, which often cannot be obtained from food alone.
Third pregnancy tip: Sport & Movement
You may also be wondering whether and at what intensity you can train during pregnancy. Sports aces don’t want to give up their training schedule and want to continue doing their sports sessions, while women who have not been active in sports often gain a new awareness of health and exercise as a result of pregnancy and thus the desire for sports and healthy nutrition arises.
Sport during pregnancy (click here for the relevant article) is healthy and important. Stay active or become active you prevent the development of increased water retention and excessive weight gain, improve your mood and well-being, reduce your risk of developing gestational diabetes, prevent back pain and ultimately even make childbirth easier.
In addition the training is not only good for you, but also for your baby: if the mother-to-be trains, the child in the womb trains too.

Fourth pregnancy tip: Babymoon
One last time for two.
Many pregnant women have concerns and doubts as to whether they can and are allowed to travel at all during their pregnancy. We say yes – definitely! Of course you should feel good and healthy. But then nothing stands in the way of the so-called Babymoon (see the Babymoon article).
After the first few weeks, when the symptoms typical of pregnancy such as nausea, discomfort and tiredness gradually subside, it makes sense to enjoy some quality time together with your partner. You really deserved that too. Pregnancy is super exciting, but also exhausting for body and mind. And when your baby is with you later, everything will be different.
Of course you don't have to be afraid that you won't have any more romantic hours together for the next eighteen years, but a lot will change – especially with the first child. Therefore, it is highly recommended to really enjoy this time during pregnancy. Relax together, look forward to your future with your baby together.
Fifth pregnancy tip: midwife
In order not to get unnecessarily stressed later, we recommend that you see a midwife as soon as possible to seek your trust. It's best to ask around your circle of acquaintances and friends for warm recommendations.
Why is a midwife so important?
Especially with the first pregnancy, questions often arise that the best friend maybe not even able to answer quickly. And your own mom may not always be the first choice when it comes to intimate questions. Your midwife is your best contact for all questions. You don't need to feel uncomfortable or embarrassed in front of her. Believe me, there is nothing a midwife has never heard or seen.
