NUTRITION

 

“LET FOOD BE THY MEDICINE…”

Our Registered Dietitian knows there how much there is to consider in when providing a healthy, safe, nourishing environment for both baby and mother both before and after delivery. Proper nutrition is key to supporting your growing and developing baby.

The physiological changes associated with pregnancy and lactation means additional nutrient requirements. In addition to increased calorie needs, the primary nutrients which require special attention during pregnancy and lactation are protein, iron, folate, zinc, B-12, and vitamin D. Working with a Registered Dietitian provides the necessary support and assistance to carefully plan meals which will meet your individual calorie and nutrient needs as appropriate for each trimester and beyond.
