Supplementation in Pregnancy
-Saturday, September 24, 2011
Whether to take nutritional supplements or not during pregnancy has long been a heated debate. Logic tells us that to create and support a new life, both mother and father need extra nutrition to replace what is absent within even a most carefully constructed diet.
As a midwife stated:
"It’s wise to steer clear of chemicals because we don’t know what activity they have in the body apart from providing concentrated chemical supplements. Therefore most pregnant women are advised to avoid most supplements and to eat a ’balanced diet’ and then all will be well."
