Pregnancy is the most incredible life changing thing that will happen to you. As the food that you eat will be providing the only source of nutrition for your growing baby, it’s vital that you not only eat the right foods but also in the right quantities.
Quite often the information available on what to eat during pregnancy is conflicting and confusing. What we aim to do here at The Nutritional Therapy Clinic, is not only guide you on what not to eat, but also give clear and concise advice on beneficial foods for you and your baby. Our nutritionist Emma Vanlint is a mum herself, so she can give first hand advice on how to optimise your diet whilst working or looking after children.
Optimum nutrition during pregnancy can be crucial for both you and the baby. With the right foods and supplements its possible to substantially reduce the risk of birth defects, low birth weight, boost your babies IQ, and also reduce the risk of your baby inheriting allergies or conditions such as eczema or asthma. And when it comes to you, it’s possible to reduce the chance of getting stretch marks, morning sickness, anaemia, pre-eclampsia, fatigue, constipation and mood swings.*
At the end of the consultation you will take away with you information on foods to avoid, a detailed description of the most beneficial nutrients and the food sources containing those nutrients, a nutrition plan for labour, plus a practical food and dietary plan with meal suggestions and recipes, which ties all the information together.
Having a baby is a huge undertaking for the body, so it is important to look after your body’s needs once your baby has come along. Many women can suffer from post-natal depression in the subsequent months after giving birth, however this can be avoided with optimum nutrition. A good diet can also help provide you with the energy and stamina needed for looking after your newborn and help you get your body back in shape.*
