It is a known fact that most women intend to make babies and have their own families. Little wonder there is great joy whenever they get pregnant, because at the end of a certain time... usually nine months, a baby will be welcomed with open arms into the world.
The period of expectancy, especially the first trimester (the first three months of being pregnant), are the most crucial and important stage in the formation of the foetus.
The purpose of this piece is to shed some light on the do's and dont's of what an expectant mother should consume when pregnant, especially in her first trimester - if she is to have a healthy baby at the end of nine months and to prevent the risks of miscarriage.
Below are some nutritious foods and fruits to eat/consume when you're pregnant to help make sure you and your baby stay healthy.
1.Dairy products e.g. milk.
3. Sweet potatoes.
7. Lean meat and proteins.
Things to abstain from and avoid when pregnant:
Fruits and food to avoid when expecting;
2. Unripe or semi-ripe fruits.
4. Soft cheese
Remember to always wash your fruits before eating them. Also, do make sure you take enough vitamins as this will help fight infections - as your baby's immune system isn't yet formed while you are in your first trimester.
Furthermore, do not fail to make frequent and regular antenatal visits during this stage and throughout the course of your pregnancy.
