Nutrition consultations for pregnancy

Plus top three health tips for mums-to-be and new mums

24 February 2009 – Worried about gaining too much weight during pregnancy or aren’t sure how to lose your baby weight? MamaBabyBliss, the company dedicated to nurturing mothers and their babies, is now offering nutrition consultations for pregnancy and post birth to solve these problems.

Mums-to-be and new mums are given a one-on-one telephone consultation based on their specific circumstances, taking into consideration their medical background, food preferences and whether they’re breastfeeding. They’re given a practical, personalised nutrition programme that they can follow. The consultations are with Helena Bingham, a natural nutritionist of nine years, cost £40 and can be ordered directly on

“Most new mums are worried about getting their pre-baby bodies back, but women need to give their bodies the right food to recover post birth, particularly if they’re breast-feeding. In pregnancy it’s not about eating for two quantity-wise, it is about doubling the nutrients and goodness, making each mouthful that you do eat really count!” says Helena.

For mums wanting to wean their baby onto solids, MamaBabyBliss also offers a weaning consultation taking the baby’s specific requirements into account. Please email for more information.

Top Three Health Tips for Pregnancy & New Mums

· Water: 60 – 70% of your body is made up of water and is needed for most bodily functions. Aim to drink between three and four pints of pure, filtered water a day. It is vital for flushing out toxins, helps prevent constipation (a common occurrence in pregnancy) and increases skin’s elasticity, helping to reduce the chance of stretchmarks. Not enough water causes your body to go into stress, which in turn causes further dehydration and prevents you from resting.

· Rest: During pregnancy it’s vital to rest and relax, letting your body retain the energy it needs to create your growing baby. Post birth it’s just as important to rest. If you don’t, your body goes into ‘fight’ mode trying to conserve the energy it needs and won’t release the extra baby weight or toxins it’s storing. Often simple relaxation can help reduce post-natal bloating as the body ‘let’s go’ of the harmful toxins it’s hanging onto.

· Exercise: Gentle, regular exercise helps flush out toxins, gives you energy and helps tone your body. It also helps prepare your body for a natural birth. Daily walking – pushing your baby in the buggy – is a great way to boost your energy levels, while pre- and post-natal yoga are excellent options too.
