During pregnancy, we recommend eating a diet similar to the Mediterranean diet, which translates to “eating close to the earth.” This nutrition principle encourages you to peel and chop your food, eat lean proteins and healthy fats, and avoid pre-packaged foods. If it comes out of a bag or a box, it is probably not of much value to you or your growing baby.

We encourage you to continue with your normal exercise routines during your pregnancy, but be cautious of signs for overexertion or abdominal cramping.
Avoid high impact activities, and be alert for signs of overheating and dehydration. Walking, swimming and yoga (non-Bikram style) are examples of good exercises to incorporate into your daily routine. Remember to increase your hydration during and after exercise.
