Nutrition & Pregnancy

Nutrition during pregnancy plays a vital role in the development of the baby’s brain and body. The mother’s nutritional demands change greatly due to the unique stresses of pregnancy. Eating a balanced diet containing a wide range of nutrients is therefore essential. Mothers should assess for nutritional deficiencies and aim to correct them, ideally by improving their diets or by taking supplements.
Current guidance to pregnant mothers does not stress how important the diet is for the healthy development of their baby’s brain. The maternal diet during pregnancy impacts brain development and cognitive abilities of the child for a long period of time, so it is crucial that thorough advice is given in order that mothers can make informed food choices during pregnancy.
