Five foods you can eat to improve your pregnancy and birth

While eating well is important in all aspects of your life, it is even more important when you are pregnant.

Your baby's growth and health are affected by what you eat. It can also directly affect your labor. This can make it easier or more difficult when you have contractions.

For a healthier pregnancy and birth, eating more fruits and veggies is a good rule.


Both men and women love probiotics, regardless of whether or not they are pregnant. Probiotics can help improve many functions in the body. They make sure that your gut is populated with the right bacteria. This will aid with digestion, cognitive function, immune system support, and bowel movements.

Probiotics are completely safe for pregnant women! It is actually recommended. According to estimates, 40% of pregnant women experience constipation after giving birth. One study showed that just 2% of women who took a probiotic suffered from the same problem. This is a 94% reduction in the number of people who have experienced similar problems.

Probiotics can also be beneficial during pregnancy. Probiotics can fight harmful bacteria, which could lower the chance of infection for your baby. It is believed to reduce preterm births.


Low levels of anemia are quite common in pregnant women. Your body needs more iron to grow your baby. You will feel even more tired and weaker as a pregnant woman if you don't get enough iron from the foods you eat. You can have serious complications in pregnancy and labor if you have an iron deficiency.

It's not as hard as it seems to add iron to your diet. There are many foods that contain iron. However, spinach is the best.

A raw spinach salad is a great way of getting more iron into your diet. However, you can also increase the iron content by cooking it in pasta or omelets.


Folic acid can be called many things. Folic acid is sometimes called folate. However, it can also be considered a B vitamin. Folic acid is important to be taken during pregnancy as it can prevent major birth defects such as spina bifida and anencephaly. Folic acid is an essential prenatal supplement that should be taken during pregnancy. These prenatal vitamins are available at low prices in many pharmacies. You can also order prescriptions online from these pharmacies.

It's a good idea to make sure it's in your prenatal vitamins, but you can also include it naturally in the foods you eat by adding legumes.

What are legumes exactly? Here are some ways to add legumes to your diet:

  • Beans
  • Peas
  • Lentils
  • Chickpeas

Lentils not only increase folate intake, but also provide a wealth of protein, fiber, iron and other nutrients.


The popularity of dates is higher in the middle east then it is in the USA, but they can still be found in grocery stores along with other dried fruits and nuts.

They contain nutrients that will help you stay healthy during pregnancy like fibre, folate and iron.

It is believed that six dates a day, four to five weeks before your due date, can naturally induce labor by increasing cervical dilatation.

Raspberry Leaf

Raspberry leaf does not mean eating the leaves of the raspberry plants. It's much easier to consume when it's added to tea or taken as a supplement.

Raspberry leaf tea is a healthy option to water. It also helps to tone and strengthen the uterine muscles. It can be used to stimulate labor and prevent excessive bleeding after birth. It is important to talk with your doctor before you take this supplement. The actual research on it is very limited.

Although pregnancy can be an empowering and beautiful experience, it doesn't have to be easy or pleasant. There are many things you can do to improve your pregnancy and post-partum.
