Pregnant? Congratulations! SheSaid is your source of easy-to-follow pregnancy diet advice including what should women who are pregnant eat, delicious pregnancy eating plans and pregnancy food to eat and avoid. There’s a lot of talk about which foods to eat during pregnancy, including fish, meat, cheese, eggs, vegetables and deli items, so we’ve created guides for your pregnancy diet to teach you what pregnant women should eat and also stay clear of, and which foods provide the best nutrition when you’re eating for two. You’ve probably heard about the importance of certain vitamins like folate and calcium, so we answer your questions about how much you should consume every day for each week of your pregnancy and which foods provide the most essential vitamins so you can include them in your meal planning. Eating well during pregnancy is vital for a healthy mum and baby, but we know you can’t just eat the same thing day in, day out. So we’ve also created delicious pregnancy recipes, meal plans and snack ideas that are packed with flavour and the right nutrition for you and your baby to inspire your cooking during all three trimesters. A healthy pregnancy eating plan should ideally start before conception, so if getting pregnant is important to you, we have tips on creating a pre-pregnancy diet which prepares your body for the next nine months. And if you are worried about gaining weight during pregnancy, or how to lose weight after giving birth, we have advice from doctors and nutritionists on healthy prenatal and postnatal eating and sensible post-baby weight loss including diet and exercise. Just because celebrities return to their pre-baby bodies after giving birth doesn’t mean everyone can (unless you have nannies and trainers!) so having realistic post-baby weight goals is important to help you achieve those goals.
