The idea of eating well during pregnancy can be overwhelming, but you’ve got this!
It is important to start thinking about your nutrition before during and after pregnancy, with the aim to ensure appropriate nutrition for both the mother and baby, as well as appropriate maternal weight gain and baby weight.
Throughout pregnancy there are common side effects that may affect your eating and drinking, and ultimately make it more difficult to meet your energy requirements. These include:
Nausea and vomiting
