The tailored approach: Why your pregnancy diet needs change with each trimester

We all know that during pregnancy, the phrase ‘you are what you eat’ is never more true. There are plenty of studies to show that a mother’s diet during her pregnancy plays a vital role in their child’s development and contribute to a healthy pregnancy.

But what many of us as mothers don’t know is that the different stages of pregnancy require different levels of nutrition. Our bodies go through so many changes in this time that it can feel difficult to keep up with it, especially with so much else going on with preparing for baby.

Having a tailored approach to your nutrition at every stage could be the key to having a healthy and optimal pregnancy so your baby is as healthy as possible when they arrive into the world. Proceive Pregnancy range is a vital part of that tailored approach as it is uniquely formulated to support the nutritional needs of both mum and baby during each trimester.

Providing a wide range of superior quality amino acids, vitamins and minerals at optimum dosage levels, each product from Trimester 1 to 3 has a base of core nutrients including Folic Acid, in the natural L- Methylfolate form for improved absorption, Vitamin B6, Vitamin B12, Vitamin C, Iron and Zinc.

But what do we need in each trimester? How do our nutritional needs change and increase with each step in our pregnancy? And how can Proceive meet the needs of each trimester?

Trimester One

Trimester one is an exciting and also overwhelming time. This is a key trimester even though from the outside it doesn’t look like much is changing, but on the inside, baby is growing their major organs and systems! The embryo develops rapidly and by the end of the first trimester it becomes a foetus that is fully formed, which is a lot of growing in the first 12 weeks. The first trimester is the most crucial for the baby’s development and this why it is so important for mum to take care of her own health and in turn, the baby’s by improving her nutrition and supplements. During this period, the baby’s body structure and organ systems develop. This is where Proceive Trimester 1 comes in, by providing nutrition for you and your baby at optimum levels for the first trimester. For baby: Calcium and Vitamin D supports the maintenance of normal bones. For you, Iron, Magnesium and Vitamin B2 contribute to a reduction in tiredness and fatigue.

Trimester Two

Trimester two marks a turning point for both mum and baby. The umbilical cord thickens as it carries nourishment to the baby and mum may start to feel more tired as baby grows more and more. The foetus can hear and recognise the mother’s voice at this stage and baby’s brain grows most in this period. As mum’s appetite increases, both mum and baby still require a wide range of nutrients including Folic Acid. Proceive Trimester 2 provides nutrition for you and your baby at optimum levels tailored for the second trimester. It provides a comprehensive, active blend of 31 key vitamins, minerals and amino acids scientifically formulated for this stage of pregnancy.

Trimester Three

The third trimester means you’re both almost at the finish line! Mums body is working hard and baby’s lungs are still maturing as it starts to get into position. Mum may be particularly uncomfortable during this time and find sleep difficult, it’s important to make sure you’re relaxing as often as possible before your little bundle of joy arrives. Taking care of yourself in order to take care of baby during this period is vital so be sure to prioritise all the nutrients that baby and you need to get over this final trimester. Proceive Trimester 3 is specifically formulated to support the nutritional needs of mum and baby and during the third trimester.

 

Providing a wide range of superior quality nutrients at optimum dosage levels, Proceive offers premium nutrition that is safe and effective for you and your baby during this time. For example, Vitamin D supports the baby’s maintenance of normal bones and muscle function and Vitamin B1 supports the normal function of its heart. For mum, Vitamin B2, Iron and Magnesium contribute to the reduction of tiredness and fatigue. Proceive does not contain fillers, binders, preservatives, artificial colours or flavours.

Omega 3 is important for additional nutritional benefit. Omega 3 contributes to the development of the baby’s heart, eye and brain. Proceive Omega 3 is high strength and purity and contains 660mg EPA and 440mg DHA.
