How to have a smart baby

For a baby to be born healthy, he needs healthy par­ents, and in order to suc­cess­ful­ly devel­op, he needs smart ones. They say that you need to raise a child while he lies across the bench. Accord­ing­ly, it is bet­ter to start tak­ing care of his health even before con­cep­tion.

If you are plan­ning a preg­nan­cy, you need to under­go a med­ical exam­i­na­tion. Some sex­u­al­ly trans­mit­ted dis­eases (STDs) can go unno­ticed by the car­ri­er of the infec­tion, but they affect the course of preg­nan­cy in the most severe way — from the threat of inter­rup­tion to the devel­op­men­tal pathol­o­gy of the fetus. Both par­ents need to be exam­ined, and treat­ment should begin before con­cep­tion.
Preg­nan­cy is a rather seri­ous bur­den on a wom­an’s body. Strength­en your health in advance, because “weak links” can seri­ous­ly let you down. Com­plete­ly healthy teeth are a rare phe­nom­e­non in our time. Vis­it the den­tist before con­cep­tion — you still have to do it, but dur­ing preg­nan­cy it is still bet­ter to do with­out the use of novo­caine and sim­i­lar drugs. And the stress from the hor­ror of the drill will not ben­e­fit either you or the child.
Heal all inflam­ma­to­ry process­es before giv­ing up con­tra­cep­tion: preg­nan­cy is a con­traindi­ca­tion to antibi­otics.

Remem­ber if you had rubel­la as a child. If not, it is bet­ter to get vac­ci­nat­ed in advance. Rubel­la in the first trimester of preg­nan­cy can lead to severe fetal patholo­gies.

From the moment you decide to become par­ents, sobri­ety is your way of life. It is hard­ly nec­es­sary to tell any­one about the dan­gers of smok­ing and alco­hol on the devel­op­ment of the fetus, espe­cial­ly on its brain. Give up cig­a­rettes and alco­hol in advance so that the germ cells mature with­out the influ­ence of these poi­sons.
In order for a child to be born smart, the nutri­tion of the expec­tant moth­er must be cor­rect and com­plete. Ani­mal exper­i­ments have shown that the lack of polyun­sat­u­rat­ed fat­ty acids leads to the fact that the cub devel­ops worse in the future and los­es the abil­i­ty to learn. So, fish oil and flaxseed oil are your choice. Fat­ty her­ring con­tains a unique com­plex of amino acids and oth­er use­ful sub­stances — eat for health, yours and your child. Sea­son sal­ads with fresh veg­eta­bles with lin­seed or olive oil to get vit­a­mins and omega 3 and omega 6 fat­ty acids nec­es­sary for the for­ma­tion of brain cells.
Liv­er and yolks con­tain lecithin — it helps the body absorb fat-sol­u­ble vit­a­mins, low­ers cho­les­terol lev­els, and strength­ens the ner­vous sys­tem. And, of course, your diet should include veg­eta­bles and fruits in all forms, prefer­ably fresh. Vit­a­min and min­er­al com­plex­es are an “ambu­lance” to the body.
Phys­i­cal activ­i­ty is just as impor­tant as a healthy diet. Try to spend as much time as pos­si­ble in motion. Make it a rule to walk at least part of the way to and from work. If it is dif­fi­cult for preg­nant women to ski or ride a bicy­cle, swim­ming remains — in sum­mer in open water, in win­ter — in the pool. Out­door activ­i­ties will sat­u­rate your blood with oxy­gen, which is nec­es­sary for nour­ish­ing the child’s brain.
The stress­ful con­di­tions of the moth­er have a harm­ful effect on the devel­op­ment of the fetus. Of course, it is impos­si­ble to avoid wor­ries and trou­bles. In addi­tion, dur­ing preg­nan­cy, the hor­mon­al sys­tem of a woman is rebuilt, hence not always an ade­quate response to dif­fi­cult sit­u­a­tions. Try to learn some relax­ation tech­nique that suits you — it will help you not to dwell on expe­ri­ences and not exag­ger­ate the size of trou­bles.
