Replenishment of increased nutrient needs during pregnancy and lactation
During gestation, it is necessary to adapt to the physiological changes at the organ and tissue level, and to compensate for the increased need of nutrients by taking into account the initial nutritional status and dietary habits. In this period of life, only the maternal body is able to provide the nutrients that are essential for development.
Taking pregnancy vitamins even after childbirth promotes the regeneration of the mother’s system and provides the right quality and amount of breast milk for the development and growth of the baby until the end of breastfeeding.
