The Nutrition Guide: 4th Trimester


The 4th Trimester Nutrition Guide

by The Pregnancy Food Company


You have just been through a monumental physical and emotional experience but at last your baby is here. Now once again your body is changing.  Some of these changes are physical,  such as your breasts getting full of milk or the cramps you feel as your uterus shrinks back to its regular size. 

Others are emotional like the surge of love when you hold your baby or the tinge of fear of the responsibility or the worry that you may not be able to cope.

Some experts suggest that you should consider your pregnancy to be 12 months long instead of nine, the extra three months ‘the fourth trimester’  being  a time to gently recover and adjust to life with a new baby.
