Your First Trimester

  • Folic Acid for a Healthy Baby

    Getting enough folic acid can reduce the risk for neural tube defects (NTDs) and may also reduce the risk for other serious birth defects of the brain and spinal cord.

  • The First Trimester

    A healthy first trimester is crucial to the normal development of your baby. You may not be showing much on the outside, but inside, all the major body organs and systems of the fetus are forming.

  • First Trimester Screening

    Screening during the first trimester is a combination of ultrasound and two blood tests. These tests can help determine the risk of certain birth defects.

  • Headaches in Early Pregnancy

    Managing headaches is especially tricky in the first trimester when you should avoid medications.

  • Morning Sickness

    It’s hard to think positive when you’re feeling sick and nauseous. But those common pregnancy symptoms can benefit your baby. Find out how, and what it takes to ease your symptoms.

  • First Trimester Fatigue

    For many women, the extreme tiredness of the first trimester is quite a surprise. And it’s an especially hard transition for those who are normally go-getters with lots of energy.
