Your pregnancy diet is vitally important to the health of both you and your baby.

Great nutrition during pregnancy reduces the risk of birth defects and is essential to your own well being and your baby's growth, intelligence, health and happiness.

Pregnancy Diet and Nutrition

Water and exercise help carry nutrients to your baby and prevent constipation, hemorrhoids, infections, dehydration and excess swelling.

Foods to avoid during pregnancy include sugar, caffeine and alcohol.
