What changes take place when a woman is pregnant?

Every year, 800,000 babies are born in France. The average age of a first-time expectant mother is 29. Many precautions must be taken to ensure the health and well-being of both the expectant mother and her child.

Pregnancy is generally accompanied by physical and emotional changes, due mainly to surging hormones. A pregnant woman often notices that her hair becomes thicker and her skin glows, but she also gains weight, experiences breast pain and is affected by vitamin and mineral deficiencies.

Why are nutritional needs more specific during pregnancy?

These changes can cause discomforts known collectively as “pregnancy sickness”. Nausea, constipation, sleep disturbances and cramps are some of the discomforts a pregnant woman may experience in the various trimesters of her pregnancy. They vary in severity from one woman to the next.

Today, nearly 75% of all pregnant women experience nausea, mainly in their first two trimesters, and nearly half of them experience constipation that continues after the birth.

But these problems are not inevitable because there are simple and natural ways to treat them.

Why use Maternov?
