Pregnancy and breast-feeding

During the pregnancy period and during breast-feeding, a number of physiological changes occur which lead to an increase in the requirements of some nutrients for normal foetal development and adequate growth of the child. This increase requires the mother to have a varied, balanced diet. 

Why food supplementation is important?

In order to optimise adequate foetal development and prevent possible complications, pregnant women must have a good nutritional status and maintain it throughout pregnancy, even beyond childbirth. During the breast-feeding period,  in addition to the normal maternal requirements, diet needs must cover all those needed to feed the newborn during the first months of life.


In Western countries, the intake of some minerals and vitamins, such as magnesium, zinc, iron, calcium, B complex vitamins, vitamin E, etc. can be lower than recommended in some cases (in unbalanced diets, vegetarian or lacto-ovo vegetarian diets, restricted meat consumption, multiple pregnancies, pregnancies in adolescents, smoking and/or alcohol intake, etc.). In these situations, supplements with multivitamin preparations are recommended to help you reach the right nutritional status before, during and after pregnancy.
