Nutrition During pregnancy and breastfeeding

MonVita Diet Centre

Planning the pregnancy, pregnancy and breastfeeding is a great opportunity to change your eating habits. The nutritional status of prospective moms and women during pregnancy has a strong influence on pregnancy and child health in the future.

Both proper nutrition in the prenatal period as well as during breastfeeding is the most important time for a child, called nutritional programming. In the first months and years, the child’s body is extremely susceptible to the formation of habits. For that reason mother’s diet plays a key role in the proper development of the child and reduces the risk of overweight, obesity and food-related diseases in the future.

Need for energy, certain vitamins and minerals increases during pregnancy. This is way the diet should be well composed and balanced.

During the visits we make anthropometric measurements and help to maintain proper body weight during pregnancy. We help to reduce typical pregnancy problems of the digestive system, like heartburn, constipation and nausea. We help to adjust the diet to m-etabolic disorders. After finishing breastfeeding, we also help to return to the pre-pregnancy form.
