Posted on 05-25-2015 | Holly Holt


Improving the well-being of mothers and infants is an important public health goal. What you may not know, however, is that infant care actually starts before your child is even born. From the moment your child starts growing inside the womb, your behavior, diet and even attitude can make a difference in the health and development of your child. Kids ‘R’ Kids Learning Academy of Collier in Land O Lakes, Florida, provides some information about maternal health to enable your child to reach full potential.

Your health affects your child

As a mother, your health will always affect your child’s health. If you are pregnant, you need to maintain a healthy diet, full of essential vitamins and minerals, as well as a good exercise routine. This healthy behavior will ensure that your child receives the foundational building blocks for effective body and brain development.

Maternal care extends beyond the womb

Once your child is born, you need to take care of your health, because if you contract an illness, you can pass this straight to your child. Another problem with being sick is that you will not be able provide the optimal child care that you normally would. Another important factor is to manage stress, which can also be transmitted to your child. Infant health has a direct link to the physical and mental health of the parents. By staying healthy, you can always be the best for your child and your child can stay healthy, too.
