Preparing You For Your Little One With Our Pregnancy Nutrition Course
If you are reading this and you are pregnant congratulations! It is the perfect time to find out about what our pregnancy nutrition course can do for you. Nutrition is important during all stages of life but is particularly important during pregnancy. What you eat can not only influence your own health, but it can also affect the short- and long-term health of your baby. Of course, you want the best for your baby, providing them with all the nutrients they need for growth and development and giving them the best start in life. But where do you start? Who do you trust, and which information do you believe? There is so much conflicting information out there, plus there is advice from friends and relatives to bring into the mix!
Rest assured you are in safe hands with Yummy Tummy Nutrition. Being an experienced Registered Nutritionist, I provide up-to-date evidence-based information for all your pregnancy nutrition needs. The pregnancy nutrition course can be tailored to your needs and cover the areas most relevant for you. For example, I can provide pregnancy nutrition advice to help you;
- manage morning sickness, nausea, indigestion, constipation, bloating, tiredness and other common pregnancy-related issues,
- develop an understanding of what a healthy, balanced diet is and how to make sure you are including the key nutrients for pregnancy,
- select the right nutrition supplements,
- manage your weight gain and get you in good stead for when the baby arrives,
- understand which foods and drinks to avoid or limit,
- get ready for the big day – foods and drinks for labour, and
- get ready for the first few weeks of parenthood (including practical tips and recipe suggestions).
The basic principles of a healthy diet stay the same. You should still eat a diet that includes:
- meals that are based on starchy carbohydrates (choosing higher fibre varieties, where possible)
- plenty of fruit and vegetables
- some protein (for example, beans, pulses, fish, eggs and lean meat)
- some dairy products (or calcium-fortified dairy alternatives)
Tiredness and difficulty sleeping is so common during pregnancy. This can be due to hormonal changes, difficulty getting comfortable at night or, later on, because of the extra weight you are carrying. Tiredness in pregnancy can also be linked to a lack of iron in your body. Iron is needed during pregnancy for the blood supply to your growing baby so it is important to eat plenty of foods high in iron to prevent deficiency. If your iron intake was low before pregnancy, you might be at increased risk of iron deficiency during pregnancy. You will be offered blood tests during pregnancy to test for iron deficiency. Eating a healthy, balanced diet can help you to obtain important nutrients you and your baby need. Other nutrients in the food we eat, such as some B vitamins, vitamin C and magnesium can also help to reduce feelings of tiredness.
Many parents-to-be opt for a private Pregnancy Nutrition course covering the topics of their choice, in the comfort of their own home. This can be an all-encompassing pregnancy nutrition course or a shorter session about a specific area of concern.
Alternatively, you may wish to get a few pregnant friends together, or your NCT group and arrange a bespoke pregnancy nutrition course which you can enjoy together – an event which is both social and educational!
