International Health Insurance News: Pregnancy 'ideal time' for health advice

Overseas medical insurance customers might be interested to learn that pregnancy is one of the best times for women to learn about healthy lifestyles.

According to a review paper published in the British Journal of Obstetrics and Gynaecology, health professionals should take advantage of the fact that pregnancy increases a woman's awareness of the benefits of a healthy lifestyle.

Indeed, they were advised to use this time to advise obese women about weight management and health living.

Jacqui Clinton, Tommy's health campaigns manager, said that health professionals are often unsure of how to initiate conversation regarding weight and healthy eating.

As such, mothers-to-be might want to acquire overseas medical health insurance to ensure that they have access to the best maternity services available in their country of residence.

Ms Clinton added: "Pregnant women need a balanced diet, full of vitamins and minerals which will help their baby to develop healthily."
