Understand the science and the impact your diet can have on pregnancy, and prepare for all the stages with practical advice and recipes from a leading nutritionist.
After falling pregnant with her first child, Rhiannon Lambert realized there was a vacuum
of information available from nutritional experts, like herself, to guide her through her pregnancy.
The only information that is easily accessible is from a variety of conflicting internet sources with a wide range of credibility attached to them. Apart from the consistent and standard advice of don't drink, don't smoke and don't put on too much weight there's very little trustworthy information on nutrition for conception, pregnancy, and early motherhood.
Written by a nutritionist specializing in pre-and postnatal nutritional care, Deliciously Healthy Pregnancy is the thoroughly researched and myth-busting antidote to a grey area that has previously been regarded as taboo.
Readers can go on a journey to explore:
- The entire pregnancy cycle - fertility, conception, pregnancy, postnatal - showing how good nutrition can have a positive impact on each phase, and preparing the mind and body for pregnancy and birth.
- An expert insight into the key nutrients, minerals, and vitamins that enable a healthy pregnancy
- Includes over 80 recipes to be enjoyed by parents and families, focusing specifically on nutrition for pregnant mothers
- Recipes have been thoroughly researched by a qualified nutritionist specializing in pre and postnatal health, breaking down the science for the reader and enabling them to trust the source of the advice.
The book is split into two halves with the first half exploring the stages of pregnancy and being a new mum. Starting with a section on living well for life and pregnancy, the book offers an introduction to the impact the food we eat has on our health throughout life before offering tailored nutritional and lifestyle advice to nurture women and babies in pregnancy. Addressing the changes in your diet from positive pregnancy test, to the fourth trimester, the book offers an approachable insight to the science behind the advice for eating well for you and your baby, and practical ideas for how to manage a variety of pregnancy symptoms.
Following on from the theory, the second half is packed with over 80 flavor-filled recipes split into mealtimes with suggestions for tailoring specifically for different needs over the course of the pregnancy. Whilst accepting there's no "right way" for everyone, Recipes can be customized to suit your personal situation: either to target a particular condition or symptom, or to cater for your dietary needs and choices, including vegetarian, vegan, gluten- and dairy-free.
A must-have pregnancy cookbook for couples looking to conceive - this book is useful for both mothers and fathers alike!
