Pregnancy, despite being a tiring experience, is, in fact, the most special experience a woman goes through in her lifetime. The decision to bring a baby into this world is not an easy one; therefore it is important for both parents to be careful and in agreement when making their decision.


Before being overwhelmed thinking about the baby, you must answer a few vital questions, such as: Is the time right for you to get pregnant? Are the circumstances at home suitable for welcoming a baby? Are you both financially capable of providing for the baby? Do you have a successful marriage, supportive enough to nurture a baby? These are all vital questions that only you and your spouse will be able to answer rationally.

Here are a few points to take into consideration to prepare yourself for pregnancy:

  • Ensure that all of the circumstances at home are perfect for a baby, such as having sufficient room and being financially capable of providing for a child.
  • Before delivering your baby, educate yourself from the many available sources, such as books and the internet. Never follow another mother’s advice for you before verifying that it is suitable for your situation.
  • Most importantly, make sure to consult with a doctor to make sure that you are physically ready to be pregnant.
  • Make sure that you have the correct nutrition for pregnancy, with the help of a dietitian.
