Eating healthy during pregnancy for baby growth and maternal health


The moment you know another being is growing inside your body, your maternal instincts are awakened.

You want to love and protect your child. You want the best for her from day 1, so that he can have a good start in life, growing up and develop her potential to the fullest. The first step to take is to have a nutritious diet as there are plenty going on inside at 9 months pregnant.

Eating right for you and your baby

Your diet during pregnancy has an influence on your child’s growth and development in the womb and on his future health after birth. Eating healthy is important to:
# Support baby’s growth and development
# Maintain maternal health
# Reduce pregnancy complication

What you need is a balanced and varied diet with special emphasis on the following:

1. Energy

Additional energy are required especially during the middle and last term of the pregnancy. Your metabolism is burning energy overtime for rapid cell division and organ development.

Protein provide you with energy that keeps you going throughout the day. Adding to that, amino acids present in protein is needed to support growth and development of your child, uterus and placenta since your body’s still in process of manufacturing your baby’s placenta until the 4th month.


2. Beneficial Fat – Omega3 DHA

Omega3 DHA is beneficial fatty acid found abundance in the brain. It is important for fatal brain and visual development too during pregnancy.


3. Folic Acid

Folic Acid is important before and during the early weeks of pregnancy. Its needed for the formation of the neural tube in your baby which later forms the spine and brain.


4. Iron

Iron, a component of hemoglobin in red blood cells, which carries oxygen to all parts of your body and also to your child via the placenta. During pregnancy, your blood volume expands by about 50% so you need extra iron to make more hemoglobin to bring oxygen to baby. If blood does not get enough iron, Anemia may develop which expose pregnant women to high risk of:
# Infertility
# Miscarriage
# Premature new born
# Low birth weight of your new born
# Morbidity
# Increase fatigue during pregnancy

There will be an increasing needs for Vitamins A, B and C and mineral like Selenium and Zinc since you will be using up more nutrients and water.


5. Calcium

You need more calcium to help your children build strong bones and teeth, to grow a healthy heart, nerves and muscles. If your calcium intake is insufficient, calcium will be drawn from your own bones which may impair your own health later in life.


6. Vitamin C

Vitamin C enhances absorption of iron and folic acid. Beside that it also needed for the manufacture of collagen which in turn is used to manufacture new body tissue specifically cartilage, muscle, bone, skin, gums, and connective tissues. Apart from that, Vitamin C is a powerful immune system stimulant, allowing you to create antibodies to fight off infection and disease.

Proper vitamin C levels will contribute to your baby having a healthy birth weight. In a 4 years study of 2064 women: Those who had a total daily Vitamin C intake from supplements or diet in the lowest 10 percent (about 24 mg per day) had about twice the risk of premature delivery of women whose Vitamin C intake was highest (about 550 mg per day)
