Key issues for pregnant and breastfeeding women. Practical help and the latest research from the NCT
What you eat and drink in pregnancy and the choices you need to make may seem like a minefield to a first-time mother.
Safe foods and those to avoid such as soft cheese, shellfish, unwashed salads, pate and liver are listed in this book as well as information on the supplements it is wise to take, including folic acid and the calories you need to feed your growing foetus.
Alcohol and common drugs such as aspirin add to the information on safe or unsafe substances.
The book also covers eating during breastfeeding – do the same rules apply?
