Hello,

1 Answer:

Hi Goenawan. Cravings are a natural condition that occurs in almost all pregnant women and until now the exact reasons why cravings occur are still unclear. There is a theory that says cravings are a sign from the body that the body is experiencing a deficiency of certain nutrients. However, some say it has nothing to do with it.

There is a belief that unfulfilled cravings will cause the child to salivate a lot at birth and this is a myth. You may indulge in the food your wife craves as long as it is edible and not excessive. If your wife craves sweets, then you can comply and work around this by replacing them with similar and healthier ones. If your wife craves pastries, you can replace them with dry biscuits, low-sugar cakes, nuts, if you crave chocolate, you can replace them with snacks containing choco chips, dried fruits.

Consult with your obstetrician about the conditions your wife is experiencing to ensure the smooth running of your wife's pregnancy. This is about cravings. Hopefully helpful, and thank you. Greetings, Dr. Alyssa
