There is so much to learn about being pregnant. What to eat, what not to eat, what vitamins to take, what random things to avoid, what things are safe, etc, etc, etc. It's a lot to take in and remember, especially with "pregnant brain!" Something that is just is important as prenatal doctors appointments is prenatal dental appointments and this infographic shows you exactly why. It's imperative that pregnant women take care of their teeth and mouth because gum disease is a real problem in pregnancy. Just let your dentist know that you are pregnant and he or she will know exactly what to do. They won't do x-rays unless absolutely necessary, and the best part for me was always the awesome rest I was able to take while I had my teeth cleaned. You really can't beat that!
