Pregnancy recipes





The joy and excitement of bringing a new life into this world is not only pleasurable but also demands a lot of responsibility. You should be ready to accept it as a challenge by maintaining a healthy diet so as to nurture the new life growing within you. All that you eat before and during the pregnancy is largely responsible for not only your health, but your baby’s too! Here’s a well-researched section on vegetarian foods and recipes for a mum-to-be.

A woman who is well nourished before conception (pre-conception) begins her pregnancy with reserves of essential nutrients like protein, iron, calcium, fibre and folic acid along with other vitamins like vitamin A, vitamin B Complex and vitamin C to meet the needs of a growing fetus. And she needs to continue to have a constant intake of these nutrients throughout the nine months of gestation too.

The different sections in this category are for the various stages of your pregnancy keeping in mind your special nutritional requirements for each trimester starting from first trimester to second trimester and finally the third trimesterright till the time of lactation. As you travel through each of the 3 trimesters, some women experience certain discomforts like morning sickness, edema, acidity etc. Read ahead in the sections here to find ways and recipes to ease these situations too.

Sit back, turn through the various sections here, clarify your doubts and ease all your nutritional worries. After all, being pregnant is one of the greatest joys of all. However remember every pregnancy is different and your gynecologist is your best companion through these precious nine months.
