"On my list of concerns about my pregnant patients' welfare, nutrition ranks second only to breathing. The reason is simple: well-nourished women develop far fewer complications in pregnancy, have more efficient labors, and give birth more easily to healthier babies than do their poorly nourished sisters."
Dr. Brewer, The Brewer Pregnancy Diet
We advocate evidence-based nutrition during pregnancy, and offer nutrition consultations to women seeking evaluation and guided instruction. Nutritional priorities alter between trimesters, and differ among women - nutrition can not necessarily be generalized, nor should pregnant women be misinformed to "eat whatever they want" with the idea that the body can extract nutrients from nothing.
Mama's Friend provides complete nutrition education as well as individualized guidance to maximize our mamas' health and wellness during and after pregnancy.
