Pregnancy Plus

Neeru was urged to start taking prenatal vitamins and supplements in her first check-up since she hadn’t before. “We strongly encourage consumption of folic acid before you conceive as well as during pregnancy,” said Dr. Payal.

Folic acid is recommended for pregnant mothers as it lessens the risk of serious abnormalities in the brain and spinal cord. Consult your doctor to find out whether you require additional supplements. Neeru started experiencing nausea and loss of appetite in the second month of her pregnancy. “I could not bear the smell of food. I didn’t want my health to suffer because of my food aversion so I asked Dr. Payal for advice,” said Neeru. Hormonal changes in your body can affect your eating habits so it is perfectly normal to experience these symptoms. “Try to maintain a healthy and well-balanced pregnancy diet that includes bland food in order to alleviate symptoms like nausea.” “You can nibble on dry crackers if eating normal food makes you feel uneasy. Also eat smaller, more frequent meals for better control over morning sickness.”
