Nutritionist's tip

If your digestive system is sluggish as a result of pregnancy hormones, fibre can really help to keep things moving1.

Nutritional benefits

  • Raspberries contain vitamin C which can protect your cells and helps to keep them healthy2.

  • Oats provide fibre which can help prevent constipation caused by your hormonal changes4.
  • Natural yoghurt provides calcium which is vital for making your baby’s bones and teeth5.
