Pregnancy Info

A balanced, nutritious diet is an important aspect of a healthy pregnancy. Eating a healthy diet, balancing carbohydrates, fat, and proteins, and eating a variety of fruits and vegetables, usually ensures good nutrition. Those whose diets are affected by health issues, religious requirements, or ethical beliefs may choose to consult a health professional for specific advice.

Adequate folate or Vitamin B9 intake has been shown to decrease the risk of foetal neural tube defects such as spina bifida, a serious birth defect. The neural tube develops during the first 28 days of pregnancy, explaining the necessity to guarantee adequate periconceptional folate intake. Folate (from folia, leaf) is abundant in spinach (fresh, frozen, or canned), and is found in green leafy vegetables e.g. salads, beets, broccoli, asparagus, citrus fruits and melons, chickpeas (i.e. in the form of hummus or falafel), and eggs.

Fish oil contains DHA omega-3 fatty acids that are usually found in in the brain and retina, it is also naturally present in breast milk. It is important for a woman to consume adequate amounts of DHA during pregnancy and while nursing to support her well-being and the health of her infant. Developing infants cannot produce DHA efficiently, and must receive this vital nutrient from the woman through the placenta during pregnancy and in breast milk after birth. Check out this article for more information on fish oil in pregnancy.

Several micronutrients are important for the health of the developing fetus, especially in areas of the world where insufficient nutrition is prevalent. Certain nutrients such as Vitamin D and calcium, required for bone development, may require supplementation.

Pregnancy is also a big job for muscles and skin, here, natural oils or gels might help prevent stretch marks or skin tightness.

  • Amazing!

    star

    I've always had thin, brittle finger nails, however, within 2 months of taking Go Multi Pregnancy daily my nails are stronger and no longer thin. Who would have thought a pregnancy vitamin would help a 73 year old.
