You’ve started to get the rest of the house in order as you eagerly await the arrival of your newborn: The nursery looks spiffy, you’ve bought all the cute baby clothes, and you’ve even made a list of possible names for your bundle of joy.
But amid the excitement of being pregnant and making all the necessary preparations to ensure that your baby’s needs are taken care of, do you ever think about your own health? Do you know that you have to take care of yourself, too?
Staying healthy during pregnancy depends on you, so it’s crucial that you arm yourself with information about the many ways to keep you and your baby as healthy as possible.
Food For Thought
Healthy eating is always important, especially when you’re pregnant. As an expectant mother, your nutritional needs will increase to meet the nutritional demands of your foetus. This means you’ll require more of these essential nutrients, such as calcium, iron and folic acid, than you did before you became pregnant. So, make sure your calories come from nutritious foods that will contribute to your baby’s growth and development.
Most expectant women also experience indigestion and constipation due to hormonal changes during pregnancy. A healthy digestive system during this time will ensure the mother’s comfort, which could affect the baby’s proper development.
The Extra Mile
If you want to ensure that both you and your growing baby are getting enough nutrients, drink Frisomum Gold. Formulated for pregnant and lactating women, Frisomum Gold is the first maternal milk supplement with prebiotics and probiotics to support your body’s changing needs during pregnancy, as well as provide a good foundation for your child.
