How he can help during pregnancy...

A healthy lifestyle and stopping smoking is on the to-do list of women who want to become pregnant. But is there anything that the daddy can do? Absolutely, a doctoral study of KU Leuven indicates. They can stop smoking and improve their diet, starting from three months before starting to try.

Increased chance of obesity

190 studies were researched in the study, 40 of which were before pregnancy. It was investigated whether the father's diet influences the composition of the child's DNA. Unhealthy diet by dad can increase the chance of a change in DNA in baby, making them more likely to become obese. How big the influence is is still unclear. But in the meantime it won't hurt for dad to improve his health, too.
