Proper pregnancy nutrition is a vital factor in proper fetal development because the fetus is physically incapable of providing for itself, nor can it show any visible signs of malnourishment between monthly check-ups as a newborn can. That means that for the next nine months, it is going to be completely up to you to ensure that you eat properly, taking in the vitamins and nutrients that are going to help you give birth to a healthy, happy baby while keeping yourself healthy at the same time. This book was written with “Dr. Mom” rather than “Dr. Smith” in mind. Throughout the coming sections you will find a thorough breakdown of the nutrients you need to ensure that you deliver a healthy baby when the time comes and basic guidelines for the trimester-by-trimester dietary changes you are going to have to make, all written in every day, ordinary English rather than medical jargons.
