Womens Health - Pregnancy Nutrition is for All Women of Child Bearing Age
During pregnancy your nutrition needs are going to increase. Even before becoming pregnant it is a good idea to make every effort to start eating healthy and taking a women's multivitamin. A prenatal multivitamin is a better choice during pregnancy.
Let's start with the recommended daily intake of food during pregnancy.
DURING PREGNANCY :
7 or more Fruits and Vegetables (3 fruits/4 vegetables)
9 or more Whole Grain Products
4 or more dairy products
60 grams of protein (two or more 2-3 ounce portions of lean meat)
PREGNANCY NUTRITION FACTS
Fish eating limitations:
Calorie intake should only be increased by 300 a day during pregnancy for the average woman.
Vitamins and Minerals
Check the RDA chart for your needs during pregnancy.
Folic Acid is a special concern because a deficiency can lead to neural tube birth defects. Your multivitamin should contain 400 mcg of folic acid. Birth defects happen before you even know you're pregnant so always take a multivitamin with folic acid during child bearing age.
Vitamin C taken in doses over 500 mg/d can lead to your baby being born dependent on large quantities of vitamin C.
Iron is also of special concern because the average American diet does not provide enough iron during pregnancy. If your prenatal multivitamin does not contain enough iron your doctor will prescribe an additional supplement. Iron is needed for you and the baby to have healthy teeth, bones, and blood.
Water is often overlooked during pregnancy but it is vital for you and your baby. It carries the nutrients from your body to the baby and it helps prevent constipation, hemorrhoids, swelling and urinary tract infection. A minimum of 6 eight ounce glasses a day is required. Juice can count toward your 6 glasses but be careful of the added calories. Any drink containing caffeine actually reduces the fluid in your body and cannot count towards your 6 glasses.
Calcium is needed by you and the baby for strong teeth and bones. During pregnancy you need 1,000 mg/d and 1,300 mg/d if you are less than 18 years old.
There is no safe time or amount of alcohol to consume during pregnancy. No alcohol is the only way to insure the health of your baby. Alcohol you drink goes to your baby through the umbilical cord. Alcohol affects the baby's growth, the baby's brain, and can cause birth defects. These effects will remain with your unborn child for his/her entire life. FASD (Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders) is the name given to anyone affected by their mother's alcohol consumption during pregnancy. Problems learning, memory retention, and hearing are just a few things that alcohol can do to your child.
Caffeine in large quantities can lead to low weight babies. It also reduces the amount of vital water in your body. Although not yet proven, some studies suggest that it may harm the fetus. While not as dangerous as alcohol it should still be avoided.
Diabetics can have perfectly normal babies like every other woman. There are a just a few things you need to be careful of.
