During pregnancy your body requires extra protein, vitamins and minerals in order to support your growing baby and to allow for changes in your own body. Nutritional recommendations during the early stages of breastfeeding are very much the same as during pregnancy.

It is vital to maintain good levels of a wide range of nutrients and in particular Vitamin D and Folate/Folic Acid (a B-Complex vitamin) and iron. The UK Department of Health have stated: “Women who are planning a pregnancy or who are already pregnant, should take folic acid and vitamin D supplements.”
