A young woman whom I have known since her babyhood is now preparing to become a mother. And she and her husband are taking this very seriously indeed. They are not yet ‘trying’ for a baby, but are reorganising their lives and lifestyles in anticipation of conceiving a baby later this year. Both have given up drinking. Both are now eating a healthy breakfast (yoghurt and fresh fruit with granola, fruit juice and wholemeal toast) and ensuring that their main meal of the day is appropriately balanced with vegetables, carbs and proteins. Both are exercising twice a week at the gym and taking long walks at the weekend. They’ve sold their house (on a dangerous road) and their beloved VW and have bought a sensible second-hand Volvo.
