Nine months of pregnancy can be a long period of physiological and psychological stresses for a mother. This pregnancy period can be divided into three trimesters where the second and third trimesters are more challenging as compared to the first trimester because of the faster fetal growth. The mother is recommended to get a healthier diet that can cater to the needs of the developing fetus as well. A pregnant woman should eat 5 small but healthy meals throughout a day. She should never starve herself as the fetus will be demanding nutrition all the time. Ample amount of calories should be taken from carbohydrates, proteins and fats. The diet should also include fruits and leafy vegetables to enhance the immunity. Watch this video to learn more on healthy diet during pregnancy.
