Pregnant women really need a lot of nutrients to support herself and the fetus that was conceived. As a result many of them feel the need to eat twice as much. Society considers this a reasonable increase in appetite.
However, this habit makes them tend to gain weight badly enough. This condition can affect them in danger.
But contrary to myth, health experts warn pregnant women do not really need to eat for two. Research in England found that if pregnant women do not need to eat more. For extra calories to enter the third trimester to be sufficient.
Studies say if they only need 200 extra calories per day. This amount is equal to two slices of white bread.
Most women who are overweight during pregnancy have an increased risk of complications twice that of normal women. Women who are overweight or obese have a chance of blood clots in the legs and lungs so that potentially endanger their lives in childbirth. They even have a risk of miscarriage or premature childbirth.
Even so, women were barred from the diet during pregnancy. Philippa Marsden, Chairman of the Committee on Patient UK Gynaecologist, said to lose weight by dieting during pregnancy can harm the health of the fetus.
“Change your diet with healthy foods that can make you gain weight and repetition may even go down,” he said. He added that paramedics can help overweight women if they plan to become pregnant again in the future or after they give birth.
