Frequently Asked Questions

Can I travel during pregnancy?

Unless you have been identified with any complications, it is perfectly safe to travel during pregnancy. Most women find the second trimester the most ideal time to travel, as the morning sickness phase of the first trimester is typically done and you won’t get as easily tired as one does in their third trimester. 

How often should I visit the doctor while I am pregnant?

In a normal pregnancy, you can be expected to come in for a check-up on the following days:

4 weeks to 28 weeks: 1 visit/month
• 28 weeks to 36 weeks: 1 visit/2 weeks
• 36 weeks to 40 weeks: 1 visit/week

If it is a high-risk pregnancy or depending on your condition, your doctor may want to see you more often. 


What should my diet be once I am pregnant?

A pregnant woman needs more folic acid, calcium, iron & protein than a non-pregnant woman. Leafy vegetables, whole grains, dairy products, fruits, and lean meats should make up 80 % of the diet. Pre-natal vitamins are also recommended. There can be cravings for salty and sugary food that are normal during pregnancy, but one should be mindful and try to eat as healthily as possible to avoid gaining excess weight and allow for better nutritional intake.

What is the best advice on feminine hygiene?

A healthy vagina needs the same hygienic attention as any other part of your body. Between urine, sweat and being so close to the anus, cleaning up the area is critical to prevent dirty bacterial buildup that can lead to infections, and to avoid the offensive odors that develop throughout the day. Using water and soap on the vagina is safe, and recommended if the soap is pH correct.
