If you are planning to become pregnant and are able to plan ahead of time, consider the following suggestions:

Change Your Diet

Make Exercise a Regular HabitSmile & Visit the Dentist

Start Taking a Prenatal Vitamin

Research suggests that a prenatal vitamin containing folic acid taken just six months prior to conception can be beneficial for a soon-to-be growing baby.

If possible, consider getting yourself in optimal physical shape so you can create the healthiest environment for your baby. Remember, that by following PAK’s proactive forty-week gestational guidelines, an expectant mom will never walk into a doctor’s office in the same way again!

“Making a decision to have a child–it’s momentous. It is to decide forever to have your heart go walking around outside your body. – Elizabeth Stone
