Each of us is different; which is so special as it makes us individuals. It is therefore a strange idea that all our baby’s will choose the exact 40 week gestation to enter the world. For reference, 280 days = 40 weeks = 9 months 6 days. It is a long time but hey you are growing a complex human baby!
With modern busy lifestyles our diets have changed compared to our previous generations. This change in diet may have affected our ability to have a baby. A good start to using your diet to maximize your chances of falling pregnant is to ensure you are not overweight and to cook all your meals from fresh rather than using ready-made meals.
We at UK Birth Centres are passionate about breast feeding and hate to hear stories about women struggling to have their baby gain weight when breast feeding, this can be a real worry for all concerned and even lead to the Mum switching to formulae feeding and ceasing to breast feed altogether. Here is some information that may be worth considering if you are in this position.
I am a UK Birth Centres Ltd Midwife and as such am able to support women holistically taking into account their physical, psychological, emotional and social wellbeing. There is no better time to have compassionate support than when you are expecting and baby and it is for this reason I wanted to give you some information that may assist you once you go into labour.
