Can Consumption Of Pregnant Milk While 1 Month Pregnant?
Hello, I’m pregnant again, said the midwife entering week 6. Can you drink prenagen milk from now on?
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Basically, the nutritional needs of pregnant women can not be fulfilled only from foods that are eaten daily. Some important nutrients needed by pregnant women include iron, folic acid, and calcium. Omega 3 fatty acids (DHA and EPA) are also nutrients that can be added (not the essential nutrients mentioned earlier), but can help the baby's brain and eye growth so it is very good if it can be consumed during pregnancy.
Pregnant women are advised to get 27 mg of iron, 600-800 mcg of folic acid, and 1000 mg of calcium every day. Generally, doctors will recommend taking pregnancy vitamins to meet the needs of these nutrients. Calcium can also be fulfilled with regular milk consumption (no need for pregnancy milk). If you prefer to consume pregnancy milk compared to pregnancy vitamins, then you must pay attention to the nutritional content in your pregnancy milk. Generally you will be advised to drink 2-3 glasses of milk per day to meet the nutritional needs above.
You can choose for yourself which you prefer, drink pregnancy milk 2-3 times a day or take pregnancy vitamins plus plain milk. Usually the obstetrician can help you choose which combination is best for you (if you have difficulty calculating the nutritional content yourself). Therefore, it is better if you do a midwife check up, you should also check with your obstetrician at least once in your first trimester of pregnancy. Obstetricians can also do an ultrasound of pregnancy to determine the exact age of your pregnancy and also detect the presence or absence of certain kelanan in pregnancy and fetus.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
