Additional Information:

Research shows many New Zealand mothers do not consume sufficient amounts of the right nutrients during pregnancy and breastfeeding.
The latest national nutrition survey found inadequate intakes of iron, calcium, selenium, B group vitamins and vitamin A amongst women of childbearing age.  In a study of pregnant New Zealanders in 2009, almost all participants were found to have intakes of vitamin D, folate, iron, and selenium below the estimated average requirement.
Adequate nutrition during pregnancy has been shown to influence pregnancy outcome.  Normal growth and development are dependent on key nutrients such as folic acid, iodine, iron, omega-3 fatty acids and zinc.
Healthy gestation and birth weight, healthy development of a baby's brain, visual motor skills and hearing and healthy hormone levels, energy and vitality in pregnant women can all be influenced by nutrition.
Digestive disturbances and discomfort can be common during pregnancy.  Choosing an iron supplement which is low constipation and low nausea, such as ferrous bisglycinate, can minimise digestive discomfort.,  Digestive discomfort can also be minimised by choosing a supplement which contains odourless fish oil, without a fishy after taste, and small, easy-to-swallow capsules.
