Tips for Summer Pregnancy

Posted by healtheo360 on Aug 26, 2014 10:11:21 AM

Summer can be hot and humid.  This is even worse if you are pregnant.  Although summer feels miserable when pregnant, the warm weather does have its benefits.   Delivering the baby in a warm month means both mother and child will be able to get fresh air, which can be very important.  Here are some tips for summer pregnancy.
