Pregnancy: A window to your health

crystal-ballSometimes I wish I had a crystal ball to look into the future. Did you know that your pregnancy can be your crystal ball?

Last week, the television program Today had a helpful segment on how health issues in pregnancy can sometimes predict health issues in the future. For instance, if a woman develops gestational diabetes or high blood pressure during pregnancy, she may be at increased risk for those conditions after pregnancy.

Also, your mother’s pregnancy history may tell you about some of the risks you may face. So you may want to take some time to learn about your family health history.
