This is such a joyous and special time for you and your family!
Similar to preconception, we understand pregnancy requires specific dietary, nutritional and lifestyle guidelines which we will support and guide you through.
We feel your mineral, nutrient and vitamin levels; dietary intake and lifestyle during pregnancy has the ability to benefit or affect your growing baby, and it is of the utmost importance for us to ensure optimum nutrition during this critical time of development to give your baby the best start in life!
We are highly experienced in testing and supporting many vital nutrients during pregnancy; including zinc, iron, vitamin D, folate, vitamin B12, chromium, copper, selenium, vitamin E, vitamin A, magnesium, manganese, protein adequacy and more.
A quality pregnancy multivitamin and mineral formula which includes not only folate but also the correct levels of iodine, zinc, selenium, calcium, magnesium and activated B vitamins is essential to provide mother and baby with all the nutrients that they both require for healthy development.
Another important nutritional component is omega 3 fatty acids, particularly Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) which is one of the major building structures of the brain and central nervous system, and directly assists the development of the brain and nervous system in your baby. Continuing mum’s DHA omega 3 supplementation during pregnancy has been shown to support neurological, visual, and immune development, and decrease allergy in children.
