I was overwhelmed with what to eat during pregnancy.
Although I had a healthy diet to begin with, I was constantly concerned about not getting enough nutrition or eating something that could harm my baby. This left me googling what I could / couldn’t eat for months, and with all the conflicting research out there, I was often left more confused than informed.
Eventually, in my second trimester, I became so discouraged by the opposing views on pregnancy nutrition, that I stopped looking for answers. Instead, I ate what I craved, didn’t overdo it on the calories and settled on a prenatal vitamin that tasted good and didn’t make me feel nauseous.
However, even when I stopped obsessing over everything I was eating or whether or not my prenatal was the best, I still had some underlying anxiety about if my diet was providing my baby with the nourishment she needed in the womb.
Through working for Expectful, I’ve learned that many women feel the same way when it comes to nutrition during pregnancy. Even though, like me, they want to do what’s best for their growing baby, they don’t know where to turn to for accurate information so they end up “winging it.”
Discovering how common this is and knowing how difficult it to find credible sources on eating well during pregnancy, I decided to reach out to the founder and CEO of Parsley Health, Dr. Robin Berzin to find out everything there is to know about nutrition during pregnancy.
It’s my hope that Dr. Berzin answers will provide you with all the confidence you need to have a thriving and nutrition packed pregnancy.
