Mother – There can be no other

If you are a vegetarian and pregnant

leave a comment »

A lot of expectant mothers who are vegetarians by choice or by religious belief or by their concern for animals, the environment, world food supply etc. have a nagging doubt at the back of their minds as to whether they are getting all the nutrition they need, both for themselves and for the babies they are carrying in their wombs. I found this link particularly useful from that standpoint (registration required – free).

It is a well-known fact that vegetarians (or even vegans) are a minority and the majority of the people in the world are meat-eaters. So, most physicians are likely to tell an expectant mother that she may not get all the nutrition required during pregnancy by just sticking to a vegetarian diet. I disagree with this majority-held view and have personally seen the beneficial effects of sticking to a healthy and balanced vegetarian diet. So, if you are a vegetarian and you are pregnant, read up on all the literature available on the subject on the net and you will get all the reassurances you’ll need.
