A healthy pregnancy for you and your baby

Life Cosmos Hospital is dedicated to ensuring the best care for you and your baby.

Our maternity unit places a lot of emphasis on promoting a healthy pregnancy. Prenatal care is one of the important components of a healthy pregnancy – this will empower you to make good choices. Regular doctor visits will provide you with all the relevant information regarding symptoms to be aware of as well as milestones to track the progress of your pregnancy. During these visits you will undergo various tests to identify possible risk factors and how to treat any problems. Your doctor will advise you on the amount of pre-natal visits you will have to complete during your pregnancy.

Prenatal care is very important but a few simple guidelines can be implemented to take care of you and your baby. Some of these guidelines are weight gain during your pregnancy. Your doctor can indicate what is within a healthy range as each pregnancy is different. Eating a balanced diet is one of the best things you can do during your pregnancy.

Other guidelines to take into consideration are medications and vitamins that are healthy or harmful during your pregnancy. You also want to take into consideration the type of exercise you can do. Regular exercise can promote not only a healthy lifestyle, but can also ease discomfort. Some women say that exercise made labour and delivery easier; they recommend walking or swimming as good choices.

Life Cosmos Hospital’s Maternity Unit will be at Highveld Mall, Pick ‘n Pay court on Tuesday, 13 February between 09h00 and 16h00 to assist with any questions and advice regarding your pregnancy.

We also encourage you to ask us about mother to child transmitted diseases and the prevention or management of these diseases. We invite you to visit our stall during the day.
