You can have a healthy pregnancy without many lifestyle adjustments.

When you’re pregnant, everyone becomes an expert on what you should do to have a healthy pregnancy. Friends and family, Facebook groups, online health information — you might feel overwhelmed by all the (sometimes conflicting) advice.

In this week’s podcast, OB-GYN Vanessa Gregg, MD, addresses some common healthy pregnancy topics, such as:

  • Exercise
  • Diet
  • Prenatal vitamins
  • Alcohol consumption
  • Misconceptions about what you should and shouldn’t do

“Women can exercise, travel and enjoy most of the things that they enjoyed before pregnancy,” Gregg says.
