How Rae increased her energy and reduced constipation

Following a healthy pregnancy diet is important to ensure you are getting the right nutrients for you and your baby. The Healthy Mummy Pregnancy Smoothie is a great pregnancy snack as it contains fibre, protein, folate, iron and a number of other vitamins and minerals that are all beneficial for a healthy pregnancy.

Here Rae Willingham shares her thoughts on how she incorporates the Smoothie into her diet when she was pregnant with her third baby:

Hello Mums To Be,

My name is Rae and I am a normal mum just like you. I have two beautiful little girls and am 17 weeks pregnant with my third little miracle.

I was one of the first members of the Healthy Mummy Pregnancy support group and received the Healthy Mummy Pregnancy Smoothie which I adore.

I knew that I needed to eat well when pregnant, I knew the main vitamins that I needed to take, iodine, folic acid and iron but that is pretty much where my pregnancy nutritional knowledge ended.

I love the fact that the Pregnancy Smoothies contain everything I need to provide my baby with the very best start in life without me having to do a huge amount of research into it, which sounds really lazy but with two little ones at home, I just don’t have the time.

Since starting the Smoothies I have saved so much time preparing snacks, they are so quick and easy to make and taste delicious.

I notice a huge difference in my energy levels after my Healthy Mummy Pregnancy Smoothie which is a massive bonus.

The biggest change for me has been how regular my bowel movements have been since starting the Smoothies.

I would go days between toilet breaks before and be very uncomfortable. The probiotics, fibre and low constipation iron have fixed that problem for me and I feel fantastic for it.

I really cant recommend The Healthy Mummy Pregnancy Smoothies highly enough, I am now an addict!
