Nutritional preparation before pregnancy
Start preparing yourself for pregnancy with healthy diet much before (3 to 12 months) before conceiving. Outcomes of certain studies prove that a healthy diet and fertility are associated both in females and males. Hereunder listed are some suggestions for improving your diet before attaining pregnancy.
As per the recommendations of the US Public Health Service, the females in their childbearing period require 0.4 milligrams (400 micrograms) of folic acid or folate every day. This B12 vitamin helps in reducing the expected baby’s risk of birth defects related to neural tube like spina bifida.
In case your family runs a history of such neural tube defects, the treating doctor may enhance the daily intake of folic acid in your diet. The acid is obtainable naturally through citrus fruits (oranges, lemons or amla), green and leafy vegetables, for instance, spinach, legumes, nuts, whole trains and fortified cereals and bread. These dietary food items may be augmented with prenatal vitamins that have 800 micrograms of folic acid.
In case you are attempting a pregnancy, it is vital for you to obtain 1000 milligrams of Calcium per day. That means you are required to drink 8 ounces (Oz) of skim milk each day. Calcium is richly available in other natural sources like cheese, rice, sardines, canned salmon and low-fat yogurt. The noted social activist of India, Late Rajiv Dixit, advocates daily use of Lime Stone (Choona) in your diet. As per his recommendations, Calcium is richly available naturally in Choona.
