  1. How much weight should I gain in pregnancy?

Weight gain in pregnancy always vary among mothers. Most pregnancies bring btw 8 to 12kg (22lb to 26lb) of extra weight, especially from around the 20th week. This can come from the hormonal response of the body to the growing baby or the associated sedentary lifestyle that comes with pregnancy. Your body will also store some fat, for making breast milk after your baby is born.

Gaining too much or too little weight could mean some health problems for you or your unborn baby. But don’t worry, we are here to guide you on healthy food choices. Find out what to eat when pregnant and what foods to avoid…

  1. How should I sleep in pregnancy?

You might have to rethink your favorite sleeping posture while you’re pregnant.

If you sleep on your back, it’s safe to continue during the first trimester. However, as your bump gets bigger and heavier, you’ll need to sleep on your side, so that organs in the abdomen do not suffer the pressure from the weight of the uterus and the baby, over the night. So why not begin to form the habit as early as you can.

By the third trimester (after 6/7months of pregnancy), sleeping on your side is the safest position for your baby as it helps prevent the risk of stillbirth.

Try sleeping on one side with your knees bent, it’ll help reduce the amount of pressure on your uterus and help you breathe better. Plus, this position can help relieve backache.

You can use pillows under your belly, between your legs, and behind your back if you like.

  1. What prenatal vitamins should I take?

You are supposed to get most of the vitamins and minerals you need by eating a healthy, varied diet. But when you’re pregnant (and while you are trying to get pregnant) you also need to take a folic acid supplement.

To keep bones and muscles healthy, we need vitamin D and Calcium.

Early morning sunlight is also a great source of Vitamin D for the body, at least until in 10am, in most African cities.

Just 10 micrograms a day is all you need – it’s the same for kids and grown-ups.

Along with the vitamins you should take, there are also some to watch out for and avoid. You should avoid supplements and multivitamins containing vitamin A (retinol) – as too much of it can harm your baby’s development. You should also avoid liver and liver products (including fish liver oil), as they are high in vitamin A.

Moreso, be watchful not to be on multiple supplements with the very same nutrients. Carefully go through the contents section of the product before purchasing.

  1. Is it normal to be short of breath?

Yes, it’s perfectly normal. You may find you can go up a flight of stairs with very little effort, but you are short of breath. Shortness of breath can start early in pregnancy—it has to do with how pregnancy hormones affect the lungs. But if you have shortness of breath along with chest pain, a cough, or heart palpitations, if you’re feeling faint, or if there’s a major change in your breathing, then you need to contact your ob-gyn.

…And yes, you can always call your ob-gyn at any time—whenever you have any concerns. We are always here to help.

  1. What Is the Best Way to Reduce Your Baby’s Risk of Birth Defects?

Folic acid is a vital nutrient that is necessary for the health and well-being of the newborn. It is also essential for proper development. It has particularly been known to prevent neural tube defects in neonates.

Another great way to keep your baby’s risk to a minimum is to attend all of your routinely scheduled prenatal appointments, this gives your obstetrician a chance to closely monitor your pregnancy and help maintain your and your baby’s good health.

If you are on medication for a specific health condition, you will want to discuss your options with your doctor before ceasing the medication. Certain types of medication are associated with both birth defects and an increased risk of a baby being stillborn.

Moreso, we cannot overemphasize the need to avoid smoking and alcohol as much as possible, during pregnancy… They have been known to cause several neurological, cardiac and even musculoskeletal defects on babies, some of which manifest months after they are born.


  1. Should I have the flu vaccine?

The flu jab is the safest way to help protect pregnant women and their babies against flu, regardless of their stage in pregnancy, or how fit and healthy they feel.

Pregnancy naturally weakens the immune system, which means it’s harder to fight off infections. As a result, flu can cause serious complications.

One of the most common flu complications is bronchitis – a chest infection that can become serious and develop into pneumonia. Click here to redirect you to our telegram group for more about the flu jab in pregnancy.


  1. How much kicking should I feel? When should I be concerned?

New moms are always worried about this topic, so it always comes into discussion. Most first-time moms won’t feel any movement (kicking) until about 5-6 months of pregnancy. With a second pregnancy, you typically feel movement earlier because you’re more familiar with what it feels like.

Once you start feeling the fetus move, you should feel something every day until about 7 months.

If you start to feel less movement than what you think is normal, you can ask your ob-gyn if they recommend kick counts. This is a test where you time how long it takes for you to feel 10 movements. Do the counts after your biggest meal of the day, because that’s typically when there is the most movement.

If you haven’t felt 10 kicks within 2 hours, call your ob-gyn. There may not be a problem, but more tests may be needed to be sure. Join the telegram group link for more weekly tutorials.


  1. What happens in an antenatal class?

Antenatal classes are available to give you and your partner lots of helpful information on pregnancy, labor, birth and early parenthood.

The doctor is also available to examine and or diagnose mothers with disturbing complaints.

They’re usually informal, fun and sociable, which makes them a great place to meet other parents-to-be. The friends you make at antenatal classes can become a great support network.

Sometimes, couples want something private or are unable to meet up with class venues, so we also offer online session and even home sessions.

  1. What is a birth plan?

A birth plan is a way of letting your midwife, nurses and doctors know what you want to happen during your labor. It’s a chance to plan things like where you want to give birth, who’s going to be with you during the birth, and what facilities you’d like to use. It’s important to remember that giving birth doesn’t always go perfectly to plan, and things may have to change at the last minute (but your doctor and midwife will be there to help you make the best and safest decision for you and your baby).


  1. What are the different types of breast pump?

There are 2 different types of breast pump: electric and manual. They’re both designed to mimic the sucking action your baby makes when they’re breastfeeding.

When you use a manual pump, you squeeze the plunger by hand. Takes a bit longer to use than an electric pump, which does the hard work for you. This type of pump is quicker than using a manual pump, but can be noisy and more expensive.

Mums often prefer a manual breast pump if you’re only expressing occasionally, while an electric pump, if you need to express milk quickly and often, for example if you’ve gone back to work.

Whatever the option you choose, ensure to keep the process hygienic and store the contents in sterilized containers and at a cool, dry place like the refrigerator.
