Maternity wear. Pregnancy. Healthy foods.
Maternity wear is necessary during pregnancy. You’re carrying a whole world inside of you, for about 9 months. Each day, you’re falling in love with a human you’ve not yet met. And each day, you should be comfortable.
Everyone has a whole lot of advice to give you when you’re pregnant. It’s helpful, but confusing at times. And with all the food cravings, it can be unnerving. Pregnancy is a beautiful phase. You’re preparing yourself to step into motherhood. And while doing that, you’re experiencing physical and mental changes. It’s important to focus on what you eat. And it’s important to stay comfortable too.
Maternity wear comes in many ranges and makes the journey into motherhood smooth and comfortable. You can wear maternity gowns, maternity dresses, lounge tops, comfy pants and pyjama sets!
When you’re building a healthy diet plan, you should focus on whole foods that give you higher amounts of proteins, fiber, fluids, complex carbohydrates, healthy types of fat, vitamins and minerals. Want to know what healthy foods to eat?
Here are 7 healthy foods to eat during pregnancy:
- Dairy products
During pregnancy, consuming extra protein and calcium is necessary to meet the needs of your little one. Milk, yogurt and cheese are a must! Dairy products are the best source of Vitamin B, magnesium, zinc, phosphorus and calcium. Some varieties of yogurt contain probiotic bacteria which support your digestive health.
