About three months ago I was very kindly sent some Centrum Pregnancy Care Plus with Omega 3 supplements for me to take during my pregnancy. During all my pregnancies I have taken supplements to an extent be it from trying to conceive to if I was run down and throughout breastfeeding. So when I discovered I was expecting again I thought I would take some again especially as I am always on the go and also the fact that I hadn’t discovered I was expecting until I was 12 weeks pregnant so I wanted to ensure I was getting the right vitamins and minerals I needed.
New Centrum Pregnancy Care Plus Omega 3 contains 19 Vitamins and Minerals which include 400mcg folic acid. It supports the nutritional needs of both mother and baby. You can start taking Centrum Pregnancy Care Plus Omega 3 at any stage of pregnancy or breastfeeding. Each box contains 30 tablets and 30 capsules and retails at £15.99. Centrum Pregnancy Care Plus Omega 3 is available from most chemists and supermarkets. You can also find out more about Centrum Pregnancy Care Plus by visiting Nutrition in Pregnancy
The website also contains information on conception, pregnancy, breastfeeding and even a section for dads. There is a ovulation calculator and due date calculator, it’s well worth a look.
For those of you that have been following my pregnancy diary will know that over the last few months I have suffered with ongoing chest infections and I am sure that my taking these supplements has helped me ensure baby is getting the nutrition it needs without impacting on my own health further. Taking the supplements did not shorten my illness but I am sure it helped me to recover better. Your immune system is lower during pregnancy which makes you more susceptible to viruses etc so taking a supplement like Centrum Pregnancy Care Plus Omega 3 helps support your immune system during this important time and beyond. When I was breastfeeding both Rowan andTrystan I found that I needed that additional support of supplements and will certainly be continuing to take Centrum Pregnancy Care Plus Omega 3 this time. I think its important to ensure you look after yourself properly when pregnant and breastfeeding and taking supplements is a good way of doing so. Of course a balanced diet is very important but when you have several children to look after it is all too easy to skip meals when busy.
