When I first found out I was pregnant one of my first thoughts was, “What do I do?”. Pregnancy was very exciting, yet extremely abstract and slightly terrifying. I didn’t for the life of me know where to start! If you are pregnant for the very first time this ultimate natural pregnancy checklist will steer you in the right direction for a healthy pregnancy, natural birth and happy postpartum! Let’s get started!

First Trimester Checklist

Congratulations, you’re pregnant! If this is your first pregnancy, remain calm. Pregnancy is not an emergency. The following first trimester checklist isn’t a sprint – there is no rush. Take your time, and meander through this list and implement each task one at a time as it makes sense for you and your lifestyle.

Second Trimester Checklist

The second trimester is the golden trimester. Morning sickness fades, baby’s kicks are felt from the outside, an adorable baby bump emerges and the aches and pains are mostly delayed until the third trimester. The second trimester is for FUN! Use this ultimate fun second trimester to-do list to make the most of every week!

Third Trimester Checklist

The third trimester is the final homestretch before baby. Many things need to be done to ensure a healthy, natural and happy transition to parenthood. Use this third trimester checklist to get things done, without going insane!

I'm curious as to why the prenatals should have folate or folic acid? My ob wants me to take a prenatal and a folic acid supplement because research has found that a folic acid supplement has significantly reduced spina bifida.

Folate is the natural form of folic acid and is more easily absorbed by the body, so you will receive more benefits from REAL folate as opposed to synthetic folic acid!

I love your list! So many great suggestions. I wish I would have gotten a prenatal massage! I would also add use birth affirmations. I started in the 2nd trimester. When do you think is a good time to start using affirmations?
