Health & Nutrition Information for Pregnant & Breastfeeding Women

Health & Nutrition Information for Pregnant & Breastfeeding Women

When you are pregnant or breastfeeding, you have special nutritional needs.  This site is designed just for you.  It has advice you need to help you and your baby stay healthy.

First - visit your doctor or health care provider if you haven't already.  Every pregnant woman needs to visit a doctor regularly.  Only he or she can make sure both you and your baby are healthy.  Your doctor can also prescribe a safe vitamin and mineral supplement, and anything else you may need. 

Next - get your own Daily Food Plan for Moms. Your Plan will show you the foods and amounts that are right for you. Enter your information for a quick estimate of what and how much you need to eat.  Or, enter the foods you eat into the Supertracker to see how your food choices compare to what you need.

Then - learn more by choosing a topic from the menu below.  "Sources of information" will take you straight to the government's best advice on pregnancy and breastfeeding.
