Know Your Vitamins, for Mom and Baby

Pregnant women are said to be “eating for two” … That shouldn’t mean eating twice as much, but it’s a good reminder to pay twice as much attention to what you eat. Vitamins and minerals give your body—and the baby you carry—what is needed for good health. But good nutrition is more than just the food on your plate. It’s also the supplements you might take, such as folic acid, iron, calcium, vitamin D, and more. Do you know what supplements are typically recommended for pregnant women? Do you know why you need them now and how they are likely to support your (and your baby’s) health? Tune in as Marie talks with Dr. Siobhan Dolan from the March of Dimes, and find out what vitamins you might need before pregnancy—during pregnancy—and after for your best health. Questions? E-mail radio@BornToBeBreastfed.com anytime.
