The advice for avoiding colds and the flu when pregnant is not all that different than when you are not pregnant. Eating a balanced diet, getting regular exercise and washing your hands frequently are the best ways to minimize your chances of catching a cold or the flu. Most practitioners will also prescribe or recommend a prenatal vitamin for pregnant women to supplement the normal diet. If you are a smoker, you should quit. It will boost your immune system and be better for your baby.
