Importance of Prenatal Nutrition!

Importance of Prenatal Nutrition!

As it is rightly said ‘Nutrition starts at Conception’. Diet plays a vital role in physical and mental development of the child right from the conception. An expectant mother must make sure to follow the right diet.  

There is much hyped misconception about following healthy dietary habits during pregnancy for benefit of her little one, but that’s untrue. If a to be mother manages to follow a good and nutritionally adequate diet, it will in fact help her as well to achieve healthy weight gain, comfortable child birth and most importantly helping her body to prepare for post-delivery weight loss. A physically and mentally fit mother makes a happy and active child.

By following a healthy and balanced diet throughout her 9 months and 9 days of pregnancy will immensely benefit her unborn. Inclusion of foods from all the food groups will be an added benefit. The following content will help an expectant mother to make wise choices during her pregnancy, making sure she remains healthy throughout.

  1. Carbohydrates: Carbohydrates form nearly 55 to 60% of total calorie consumption in Indian diets. They are majorly divided into two types i.e. Simple and Complex variants. A child bearer should opt for the complex carbohydrates in form of wholegrains like whole wheat, bajra, sorghum (jowar), finger millet (ragi / nachni), oats, etc. in her diet as they have higher fiber content with preserved vitamins and minerals. Simple carbohydrates majorly include more of refined products (maida, packaged foods), which should be used in limits or avoided throughout the pregnancy phase, as they do not provide any nourishment.
  2. Proteins: Proteins are said to be the building blocks of the body, involved in steady metabolism and repair of the damaged tissues, making them an integral part of mother’s and baby’s nourishment. Consuming protein rich foods like eggs, low fat dairy, pulses, yogurts, soy and its products at least 3 to 4 times a day, helps optimise the recommended daily allowance (RDA) intake of protein per day. Vegetarian mothers have to be more careful and be innovative to make sure that their protein consumption is not compromised.
  3. Fats: Fats play an important role in transporting Fat soluble vitamins A, D, E and K to liver. Fat intake should not be completely discouraged during pregnancy, since it is a concentrated form of energy and is actively involved in hormone making mechanism in the body. Fat intake is important, but within prescribed limits and there should be insistence on inclusion of good fats. Keeping diet restricted in bakery products, fried foods and junk foods will massively help in preventing inappropriate weight gain and also reducing the possibility of potential risk factors during & post pregnancy. Omega 3 fats present in walnuts, flaxseeds, chia seeds, spinach should be taken as it tremendously helps in mental development of the growing baby.

Macronutrients (carbohydrates, proteins and fats) intake through daily allowance will make sure an expectant mum gets her required nutrition. However, nutrients like Iron, calcium, folic acid, B complex vitamins also play a vital role in maintenance of healthy pregnancy. Daily allowance should be met by consuming green leafy vegetables, nuts, fresh fruits, etc.

Apart from getting daily calories allowance, it is equally important to stay hydrated. Water aids digestion, which helps to keep constipation at bay and also helps in maintaining optimal levels of amniotic fluid in the amniotic sac.

Expectant mother should divide her meals in small and frequent portions to combat acidity, bloating which are most common troubles associated with pregnancy. She should highly be motivated to be physically active and get adequate rest as well.

A special attention should be given to keep salt and sugar intake to minimal, as they contribute to unnecessary weight gain and bloating. They are also known to delay the labour process.

Conclusion / Bottom line

Maternal Nutrition plays a vital role in maintaining a healthy and blissful pregnancy. It is highly recommended to seek nutrition advice from a nutrition expert preferably before planning a child as a healthy diet will help in conception as well as during & post pregnancy.

Our systems become weak with age but eating habits remain same-oily food with spices. Get an ultrasound abdomen to rule out gall bladder stones & fatty liver changes. Avoid gas producing foods like pulses, beans chickpeas some raw foods like sprouts etc. Everyone know through self about own constitution and capabilities to digest food. Do deworming - 3 tabs of nemocid + metrogyl 200 mg twice daily for 3 days after food. She can take unizyme of digestive tablets after food but no ppi like ranitidine group sold by your friendly neighborhood chemist like saunf! kitchen remedies are ginger, garlic, heeng, jeera, ajwain, chaat masala, black pepper & steaming after sauting the vegetables, using tomato puree to thicken gravies instead of oil and onions. No need to eat bland food but do reduce salt. Reply with reports.

I had unprotected sex with my girlfriend after which she took an iPill. 5 days later she started bleeding, which I believe is withdrawal bleeding. Does that mean the pill was effective? Also is unprotected sex safe while she has withdrawal bleeding? Please help.

If you did not used any protection before sex...it may be unsafe for you and your partner. and you used protection before sex..it is safe for you and your partner . because no body can say who is suffering OR not suffering from S.T.D. use condom or tab. today insert into vagina before sex. your girl friend used ipill. and bleeding occurs.it mean she is not get pregnancy.

Is wearing a bra during sleep good? Does removing bra whole night while sleeping leads to sagging breasts having them hang down? Is it true that our breasts get firm by wearing bra during sleep?

No wearing bra even at night does not prevent sagging. It is better to have aeration of all parts of body at least for few hours every day.

Uphaston is a progesterone hormone. It is safe for women wanting to conceive. It regularises periods and is a pregnancy support hormone for the first few months. If you your period fails to come after stopping the medicine then please do a urine pregnancy test.

Hello there. Weakness may be due to blood loss and subsequent anemia. Get an ultrasound of KUB and share your urine report. Kindly consult a surgeon or urologist soon. Drink plenty of water and take diet rich in iron.
