Prenatal care: This is a avery complex question beyond the scope of a simple answer. The first step is to find an Obgyn in whom you trust who can assess your unique individual pregnancy and health and design a prenatal care program that will optimize the chances of successful outcome for you and the baby
Dr. Heidi Fowler

Healthy pregnancy: Avoid tobacco, caffeine, alcohol, illicit drugs ; unnecessary medications. Remain physically active and eat healthfully. Aim for at least 8 hours of sleep per night. Take your prenatal vitamins and keep all prenatal appointments. Take care.

Why is healthy digestion important in pregnancy?

Good question!: Healthy diet is important all the way. Specially in pregnancy the diet is even more important because you create new life.I will use the analogy of making a car. If you use the best materials and best engineers( the nature) the results will be fabulous:) inadequate diet can relate to problems that the baby will have later in life.Basically you can impact the whole life of your baby.

Healthy pregnancy: Pregnancy is not a "disease", and normal dietary habits, pre=natal vitamins, and exercise are generally good to develop, and can help with supporting a normal pregnancy. There are conditions which may require other forms of support or avoidance of some factors. An excellent refercne book is " What to Expect when Expecting". Consult an obstetrician for more guidance.
