Perezitos Quick Tip

Quick Tip from Perezitos.com’s Dr. Peter L. Richel, M.D., Chief of Pediatrics at Northern Westchester Hospital in Mt. Kisco:

"In addition to being supportive of you, the father-to-be must prepare for parenthood as well. He should take some time to do his own reading about how to care for a newborn. Ask your obstetrician about the availability of prenatal classes, usually offered by his or her office or at your local hospital. Also avail yourselves of a tour of the labor and delivery suite at the hospital where you plan to give birth. Being in good physical shape is important for both of you, as nights can be demanding in the first few weeks of your baby's life with you. Get him to exercise with you."

Perezitos Quick Tip

Quick Tip from Perezitos.com’s Dr. Peter L. Richel, M.D., Chief of Pediatrics at Northern Westchester Hospital in Mt. Kisco:

"Stretch and Grow

Regular exercise should begin before you become pregnant. If not, start right away! You need to be in shape for labor and delivery. Everything in moderation, though. Begin slowly and make 30 minutes a day your goal. Swimming and walking are wonderful ways to stay in shape for delivery and beyond. Stretching is vital as well and can be accomplished through yoga."

Perezitos Quick Tip

Quick Tip from Perezitos.com’s Dr. Peter L. Richel, M.D., Chief of Pediatrics at Northern Westchester Hospital in Mt. Kisco:

"A well-balanced diet is necessary, both for yourself and for your baby. A healthy weight gain during pregnancy is 25 to 35 pounds.

Remember all the food groups as you plan meals; refer to www.mypyramid.gov. Vegetarians may continue their diet, but be certain to take in enough protein and supplement vitamin D, iron, and vitamin B12. Water is essential for you to maintain good hydration."

Quick Tip from Perezitos.com’s Dr. Peter L. Richel, M.D., Chief of Pediatrics at Northern Westchester Hospital in Mt. Kisco:

"You should schedule regular visits with your obstetrician, with the same doctor, to assure good continuity of care.
