Hi,

Pregnancy is an important stage in the life cycle and therefore it requires some very important nutrients to ensure growth of the unborn and at the same time ensuring the health of the mother is also not at stake.

The following are the key nutrients.

1. Calcium

This is an important nutrient as it helps in the teeth and bone formation. The unborn child requires alot of calcium to help in the born formation and this come from the mother. Therefore the mother needs to eat a lot of foods rich in calcium to replace the amount taken by the unborn child.

2. Chlorine.

This helps prevent problems in the spinal cord that is to say spinal cord defects and the brain. It also helps in the brain development. It is an important nutrient to the mother as it helps in building strong bones and at the same time prevents high blood pressure.

3. Docosahexaenoic Acid DHA

This an important nutrient to the unborn as it helps in the brain development and vision. It also reduces the risks of heart disease in the future.
