Nutrition in Pregnancy and Lactation

Proper nutrition during pregnancy and lactation is crucial for the health and development of both the mother and the infant. Pregnant and lactating women require increased intake of nutrients such as folate, iron, calcium, and protein to support fetal growth and milk production. Adequate maternal nutrition during these stages can help prevent complications like preterm birth, low birth weight, and birth defects. Balanced diets rich in fruits, vegetables, whole grains, lean proteins, and dairy products are recommended to meet the nutritional needs of pregnant and lactating women.
