Preeclampsia Prevention

Doctors are torn between whether or not you can prevent preeclampsia, but given that there is only one way to say it's inevitable... I'll be focusing on what I can do to prevent it and praying that it works.  Tips for preventing preeclampsia is much like saying have a healthy pregnancy, but with less leniency.  Here are some things that might help prevent it:

  • Drink plenty of water
  • Get plenty of dietary fiber
  • Get plenty of calcium and vitamin C
  • Limit salt intake
  • Get plenty of daily exercise, especially stretching exercise such as yoga
  • Put feet up and rest often through out the day
  • Practice relaxation methods such as meditation and deep breathing
  • Take time to relax and do nothing

What other things do you do to lower your stress level and blood pressure?
