We’d still love to be part of your pregnancy journey, which is why we’ve formulated specific recommendations to help you through this special time for caring for both you and the new life inside you.Your nutrition matters!


These 40 weeks of pregnancy are a magical time. Your body is going through numerous physical and hormonal changes to grow the new life inside you. Nourishing your body and fueling it with a balanced diet is essential. 

YOUR NUTRITION RECOMMENDATIONS

Your body has increased nutritional needs during pregnancy. You will need about 300 calories in the second trimester and 500 calories in the third trimester. Most importantly, your vitamin and nutrient needs increase throughout your entire pregnancy.

 

Vitamin Nutrients

Crucial nutrients for you and your baby include Folate, Choline, Vitamins A and D, Vitamin B12, Iron, Zinc, Iodine, and Magnesium. Many can be met by eating a balanced diet each day. That being said, it’s important to pay closer attention to calcium, folate, and iron. 


Recommended Daily Value


  • Calcium- 1200 mg
  • Folate- 600 mg
  • Iron- 27 mg

 

Calcium is found in dairy, dark leafy greens, tofu, almonds, and salmon.


Folate is found in lentils, kidney beans, eggs, beets, broccoli, asparagus, nuts and seeds, peanut butter, avocado and papaya.


Iron is found in both animal and plant-foods. Animal-based sources  include lean beef, poultry, eggs and liver. Plant-based sources  include dark green, leafy vegetables, citrus fruits, fortified breads or cereals, fortified tofu, and fortified plant-based milks. Increase plant-based iron absorption , by pairing with Vitamin C rich foods. For example, try spinach salad with bell peppers or an iron-fortified cereal with strawberries.


Food Nutrients

Fiber Rich Carbohydrates: Carbohydrates are full of antioxidants and B-vitamins you need to sustain energy and promote healing. Fiber is also extremely important for digestion and stabilizing blood sugar.

Protein: Protein is critical for proper growth for your developing baby. It’s needed for breast and uterine tissue growth during pregnancy. Your protein needs increase by about 25 grams per day while pregnant. Stay satisfied by including protein in every meal or snack!

Good Fats: Fats help the body absorb nutrients for energy storage, brain function, and hormone regulation. 


It’s important to mention that, it’s also recommended to take a prenatal multivitamin along with extra fish oil. 


Consider this your insurance policy. 


Taking these supplements helps ensure you are getting all the nutrients you and your baby needs.
