Deliciously Healthy Pregnancy
By Rhiannon Lambert
2022 • DK Publishing
After becoming pregnant with her first child, Rhiannon Lambert realized there was a vacuum of information available from nutritional experts, like herself, to guide her through her pregnancy. The only information that is easily accessible is from a variety of conflicting internet sources with a wide range of credibility attached to them. Apart from the consistent and standard advice of "don’t drink, don’t smoke, and don’t put on too much weight," there’s very little trustworthy information on nutrition for conception, pregnancy, and early motherhood. Written by a nutritionist specializing in pre- and postnatal nutritional care, Deliciously Healthy: Pregnancy is the thoroughly researched and myth-busting antidote to a gray area that has previously been regarded as taboo.
The book is split into two halves with the first half exploring the stages of pregnancy and being a new mum. Starting with the pre-pregnancy stage the book delves into specific diets and how best to eat for fertility for both men and women. The book then addresses the changes in your diet once you receive a positive pregnancy test and start experiencing pregnancy symptoms. Following on from the theory, the second half is the practical side with 80 flavor-packed recipes split up into the three trimesters of pregnancy, what to eat when breastfeeding, and finally menus and recipes for weaning your baby.
Whilst accepting there’s no ‘right way’ for everyone, Rhiannon’s practice is based on the latest scientific research and backed up with practical advice, tips, and recipes.
