Congratulations! This is an exciting time, but for some it is also a daunting time, especially if there has been any difficulty conceiving or history of pregnancy loss. Even in the most uncomplicated of circumstances joy can be coupled with ambivalence or apprehension about all sorts of things. Good support from your expert team of carers throughout your pregnancy is essential for so many reasons.
First and foremost your physical needs are significant at this time with your nutritional needs increasing to be the highest of your life until the end of breastfeeding! New sensations and feelings both excite and sometimes cause concern or anxiety and googling for information rarely provides relief. Then there is the question of where to give birth, what support will you need …
Consider this: during your pregnancy you will create extra kilograms of the nerves, bones, organs, muscles, glands, skin and hair of your baby, several kilograms of uterine muscle, placenta and amniotic fluid, and a significant increase in your own blood volume! In addition, you’ll also replace many extra kidney and liver cells used to process the waste of two beings instead of one. Consequently, you may need to make some modifications in preparation for these amazing changes.
Understanding nutrition is just the start! So it is good to know that you have experts on hand to guide and support you through the massive changes that are occurring physically and emotionally right now.
