Bringing a new life into this world is an exciting, life changing experience, and one which requires a balanced diet for both the mother and her growing baby. Planning to have a nutritional check-up for both mum and dad to be, in the few months prior to conceiving can positively impact your fertility and conception. Pregnancy and breastfeeding places greater nutritional demands on your body. You need more energy, protein and other nutrients such as calcium, iron and folate. Research has shown that the food a mother eats during pregnancy can affect the development of her baby, and may also affect the baby’s health later in life.

Food safety is also another important nutrition issue as some bacteria can cause a serious illness for pregnant women, possibly causing miscarriage, premature birth or, in rare cases, stillbirth. Our dietitians can help you feel confident to know what foods are safe to eat during these months, bringing about a sense of reassurance when cooking at home and when eating out.
