Looking to support a healthy pregnancy? On this week’s episode of The Sitch, Registered Dietitian Nutritionist and new mom, Whitney English is dishing up the details on prenatal nutrition!

What you eat during pregnancy has a profound effect on your baby’s development and future success in life. Healthy babies start with proper prenatal nutrition!

What foods should you eat during pregnancy? Are certain diets unsafe during pregnancy? Which vitamins and minerals are important for pregnancy? We cover all of these questions and more!

These tips are geared toward all women, but especially helpful for those following a predominantly plant-based diet or women with a vegan pregnancy.

Great tips, Whitney – such an important topic!

smilingismyfavorit says:

Love these key tips you summarized! Most women know to take a prenatal, don't smoke, don't drink, and avoid raw sushi and that's about as far as their prenatal counseling goes. This is a great summary of prenatal nutritional requirements that women don't get from their OB's, I hope this video reaches a lot of pregnant women!!!

Amanda Howard says:
