Here Laura Flanagan shares her thoughts on The Healthy Mummy Pregnancy Smoothie and how it works for her pregnancy and has helped with her severe morning sickness:

My name is Laura and last year I lost 34 kilos using The Healthy Mummy plans and programs. After 10 cycles of trying I became pregnant with baby number 2 and am now 17 weeks pregnant.

Early on in this pregnancy I developed hyperemisis gravidarum (severe morning sickness) and at 17 weeks I still battle it. This illness has left me debilitated with hospital visits and medication to try and help me through. It has been a challenging time to say the least.
Laura healthy pregnancyWhen you have severe morning sickness you eat or drink whatever will stay down, for me quite often the only thing I wouldn’t throw up was KFC, lemonade or chocolate pods. After a year of healthy eating this kind of food went against everything I believed in but keeping any food and drink down was the priority and I have been in survival mode.

I have always loved everything from The Healthy Mummy and last week when I received my Healthy Mummy Pregnancy Smoothie tub I was looking forward to trying it. What I didn’t expect was a Smoothie so yummy and even better a Smoothie that not only did I not throw up but has actually helped that terrible queasy feeling of morning sickness.

I’ll shout it from the rooftops, this stuff is my saving grace and will be the reason the second half of my pregnancy will be a healthier one with a lot less junk food. Now I can add more fruit, veg and water to my diet not to mention all the goodies in the Smoothie; probiotics, fibre, non constipation iron (we’ve all been there) plus b12, folic acid and so many other goodies. Instead of nibbling away on nutrient poor junk I’ll be making a Smoothie.
