The mother's body undergoes significant change and stress during pregnancy to cater to the growing baby. Not only will she experience various metabolic changes, but there is also an increased demand for nutrients to meet the needs of the growing fetus. Therefore, an adequate maternal diet is necessary to ensure proper fetal development and maintain the mother's health.
With all the conflicting advice available, this period can be extremely overwhelming for mothers-to-be. This programme will guide you around the best foods to eat throughout pregnancy and those to avoid/limit. I will ensure you meet your macro/micronutrient needs at all stages of pregnancy, as well as layout guidelines for healthy weight gain. You will also be supported with any health concerns arising throughout pregnancy, ensuring you are in the best possible health before labour and the postpartum period.
