Welcome to your little one! Having a newborn is a very exciting time... filled with a million questions, niggling worries and of course, wonderful first-time experiences with your baby.
“When you’re pregnant, you need to eat for two!” You’ve probably heard this old wives tale more times than you can count. Most likely, this was common advice in years gone by encouraging women to relax and eat freely when they were pregnant.
Unfortunately by ‘eating for two’ many pregnant women in NZ are gaining unhealthy amounts of weight, putting their baby and themselves at risk of health complications.
