Throughout childbearing years, diet plays a role in fertility and healthy pregnancies. Get tips for nutrition before, during and after pregnancy.
Healthy Weight during Pregnancy
The amount of food a woman needs during pregnancy depends on a number of things including her body mass index before pregnancy, the rate at which she gains weight, age and appetite. Maintaining a healthy lifestyle before, during and after pregnancy is key for a healthy baby and mother.
What Is A Prenatal Holistic Nutritionist?
A prenatal nutritionist works with expecting mothers to provide optimal nutrition during the pre-pregnancy, pregnancy and post-childbirth periods. A prenatal nutritionist may also work with new mothers on optimal nutrition for breastfeeding and post childbirth health and diet.
Expecting mothers turn to prenatal nutritionists if they are concerned about being under or overweight during the pregnancy, are unable to eat or stop eating, have special dietary needs or food allergies or may be low in vital nutrients. According to USDA, an expecting mother’s weight gain generally occurs gradually throughout the pregnancy, totaling between 25 to 35 pounds at the time of birth for single pregnancies, and can play a large role in the health of a baby after birth. A prenatal nutritionist specializes in finding the appropriate weight gain to give the baby the healthiest possible time in the womb and the vital nutrients both the baby and mother need.
