You'll find clear explanations of: * What foods to avoid and why * The role of vitamins and minerals and how to choose the right supplements * How what you eat affects your labour and delivery * Dietary guidelines for pregnant women over thirty-five, as well as for pregnant teens * How diet prevents common problems from morning sickness and food cravings to heartburn and muscle cramps * Which foods and nutrients speed recovery after the baby is born.
