  1. During pregnancy everything changes in a woman's body. It is very important that both mother and child get the right nutrients. But eating healthy alone is not enough.

Folic Acid

  1. In the very first weeks of pregnancy, the baby needs a lot of vitamin B11 to develop properly. Another name for this vitamin is folic acid. With a lack of folic acid, there is a risk that the baby will be born with an open spine. Normally we get enough folic acid by eating green vegetables. However, this is not enough during pregnancy. The government therefore advises pregnant women to take at least 0.4 milligrams of folic acid daily during the first months of pregnancy. Precisely because folic acid is so important in the first weeks of pregnancy, it is best to start taking it before you get pregnant.

Multivitamins

  1. It is precisely during pregnancy that you need a top condition. It is even more important than usual to eat a healthy and varied diet. Your body has an extra need for certain vitamins, including vitamins C and D. For women who do not always get around to a healthy diet, there are special multivitamin preparations for pregnant women. Besides vitamins, it also contains other important substances, such as calcium, iron and the right amount of folic acid. Vitamin A (retinol) is an important nutrient, also during pregnancy. But too high a dose of vitamin A can be harmful to the child during pregnancy. Liver and liver products can contain large amounts of vitamin A. Eating this is therefore not recommended.

Ailments, but no medicine?

  1. Some women feel better than ever during pregnancy. Unfortunately, typical pregnancy ailments such as nausea, heavy legs, constipation, heartburn and stretch marks are common. How do you deal with this? Morning sickness occurs because the ratio of hormones in your body changes. Try to have a light breakfast in bed, such as a cup of tea with a biscuit. Lie down for a while until the worst nausea has subsided and get up quietly. It is better to only eat small meals for the rest of the day and to avoid fatty or spicy foods. Getting plenty of rest can help prevent nausea.

Heavy legs

  1. Your body causes the wall of the uterus to relax, to give your baby space. Unfortunately, the wall of your veins also slack, which reduces the blood flow in your legs. And that while your body produces extra blood. The result: heavy legs, especially in people who stand still or do work while sitting down. Try to change your posture regularly and avoid having to stand all day. Place a pillow under the foot of your mattress at night and put your legs up during the day. The blood flow can be promoted by massaging the legs. Using a special cream or massage tights can help with this.

Stomach and intestinal problems

  1. Many women get heartburn at the end of pregnancy. The muscle that closes the stomach has become weaker. This can cause stomach acid to flow back into the esophagus, especially when bending over and lying flat. A tried and tested home remedy is eating almonds. If this does not help, there are various self-care products available at the drugstore that offer relief. Check the package leaflet to find out which products are suitable to use during pregnancy. Intestines work more slowly during pregnancy. Bloating and constipation are the result. You shouldn't use regular laxatives. Fresh or dried plums and bran are a sensible alternative. Eating small amounts of fiber-rich food often keeps the intestines active. It can also help to drink a lot and keep moving.

Stretch marks

  1. Due to the increasing size of breasts and abdomen, there is a lot of tension on the skin. This can cause cracks in the elastic fibers of the skin. This is called stretch marks, or stretch marks. Once they are there, nothing can be done about it. Prevention is worth a try. Try to watch your posture, wear supportive lingerie and keep skin supple with almond oil or special creams.

Be careful

  1. The following applies to all pregnant women: be careful with medicines. This also applies to natural or homeopathic medicines. The predicate 'natural' is not the same as 'safe'! Medicinal herbs, such as ginseng, can also be harmful Medicines are absorbed into the blood and thus reach the child. Few drugs are known to be absolutely safe during pregnancy Questions about medicines? Go to: www.apotheek.nl
