5-Minute Avo-Berry Pregnancy Smoothie – Supports Mum & Bub
Mums-to-be, your bodies are AMAZING! Creating new life is no easy feat.
During pregnancy, your body is supporting both you and your growing bub. This is on top of alterations in maternal tissues and metabolism. So, the requirements for protein and nutrients, such as folate, calcium, iron and zinc are higher.
Not to mention, during foetal growth in later trimesters your body is expected to use even more energy.
Enter the Healthy Mummy Pregnancy Smoothie. It is Formulated with special, high-caloric ingredients with pregnancy in mind, helping to combat icky morning sickness and exhaustion. It also has lots of important nutrients.
While pregnant, mum Rhiannon experienced morning sickness and used The Pregnancy Smoothie. She says,
“I was diagnosed with severe morning sickness and for a long time [Healthy Mummy Pregnancy Smoothies] were the only thing I could get to stay down. The amazing thing about the smoothies is that you know from the Healthy Mummy’s reputation that you are giving your body and your growing little one an amazing boost of nutrients.”
