Healthy Lifestyle

A Healthy Lifestyle Ensures A Healthy Baby

If you live a healthy lifestyle, you will make it easier for your partner. A healthy lifestyle means eating a balanced diet, exercising regularly, going for regular check-ups and reducing stress levels. A balanced diet includes eating food such as fresh fruit and vegetables, carbohydrates such as bread, pasta and potatoes, dairy products such as yoghurt and cheese and protein such as meat that has a little fat and fresh fish. Drink lots of water as this prevents tiredness and headaches and helps with bladder and kidney health.
Let Her Rest

Be sure your partner gets enough rest. Help with the household chores. Encourage her to use relaxation exercises and join in.
Exercise Together

Light exercises boost circulation and strengthen the immune system. Walking is ideal and provides time together.
Avoid Alcohol

If you stay away from alcohol, this will help her stay away as well. Alcohol can cause birth defects. Rather drink juice or milk.
Avoid Stress

Understand the different changes you and your partner are going through as you prepare for parenthood. Stress can be very harmful to both mother and baby. Talk out differences in a supportive way.

About Us

Brothers for Life is a social and well-being movement aimed at mobilising men to take responsibility for their own health. We hope to achieve this by promoting positive male norms and encourage men to test for HIV and undergo Medical Male Circumcision (MMC), actively take a stand against Gender-Based Violence (GBV) in their communities.
