“As strong as the mother, as delicate as the mother” It is an oxymoron, I know. A mother is strong, in the sense that she has amazing emotional intelligence and an amazing will power to endure all kinds of mental and physical pains. However, the physical faculties are indeed weaker than her mental faculties. There are numerous physical complications associated with mothers. And they accentuate during child birth. Hence absolute care is a mandate for all mothers and yet to be mothers. A mother should be careful that she does not contact any flu, any allergies. She should also take ample care of the food she consumes and chalk out a diet plan for pregnancy. We at Quinoa Nutritions always say, “Eat Healthy, Stay Healthy”. Lets now see how delicate a Mother’s health is during pregnancy and post pregnancy.

Mother’s Health during Pregnancy:

During pregnancy, a mother’s body will be in need of more blood to support the growing baby. Mother’s body produces more blood to cater to this dire need. If the mother is not able to produce sufficient quantity of blood, various complications prop up not just for the mother but also for the growing baby. A mild anaemia is absolutely normal, no worries here. But, severe iron or vitamin deficiencies lead to a more chronic anaemia.

Risks of Anaemia in Pregnancy

Untreated severe anaemia during pregnancy will cause:

  • A preterm baby or baby born underweight.
  • Postpartum Depression
  • A chance of newborn developing anaemia
  • A baby with significant delays in development
  • A baby born with neural tube defects

Symptoms of anaemia during pregnancy

  • Discoloured lips, nails and skin
  • Dizziness
  • Shortness of breath
  • Inability to focus or concentrate
  • Rapid heartbeat

Treatment for Anaemia during pregnancy

  • Food supplements rich in iron
  • Adding a iron-fortified cereal
  • The main meal should be rich in iron

What not to do?

  • Self-medication
  • Over eating of vitamins/ nutrients in the form of capsules or tonics
  • Consumption of coffee or tea as it reduces body’s capacity to absorb iron.
“Prevention is always better than cure.”

It is our motto to make you healthy and this is why we suggest you to make “an iron rich diet a habit”. Using iron-enriched food in your diet would be the simplest and easiest task for a healthy pregnancy. This is why we have specially come up with Quinoa Women’s Atta.

Quinoa Women’s Atta is rich in Iron, which helps produce more Haemoglobin for the mother and the growing baby in the placenta, especially in the second and the third trimesters of pregnancy.
