Pregnancy, breastfeeding and pregnancy planning
Good nutrition during pregnancy and breastfeeding is important for both you and your baby. Eating well will ensure that you both get the energy and nutrients you need for good health and can help you to manage your weight both during and after the pregnancy. Modifying your diet can also help to manage some of the common problems of pregnancy including nausea, heartburn and constipation.
If you are planning a pregnancy, it is also a good idea to review your diet to ensure that you are following a healthy eating plan which will meet the needs of you and your baby. We now know that having a healthy lifestyle, eating well and being a healthy weight prior to falling pregnant can result in a healthier pregnancy and will reduce the risk of your child having health problems in the future.
