The best preparation that a woman can do for pregnancy is try to be at an ideal weight for them. They want to be eating healthy with a low-fat diet. The main thing that women really need to do, other than just the good health rules, are to be taking Folic Acid. Folic Acid, on a daily basis, at least a month to two months before conception.
