We have well qualified Naturopaths and Nutritionists who are experienced in assisting with dietary information, rotation diets and reintroduction of foods. They will be working with the food intolerance test report and advising you of the inflammatory foods to avoid. This not only gives you, the mother, a benefit but also decreases the inflammatory effect on your unborn child.
Another important aspect we consider whilst adopting the elimination, rotation and reintroduction programme, is that the nutritional status of the food plans are balanced to give you the maximum vitamin and minerals within your diet.
We also encourage the health of a mother’s microbiome whilst pregnant as this helps to determine the health of her baby’s microbiome, and it’s subsequent immune and digestive health.
Several probiotic strains have been shown to improve the mother’s microbiome, including Lactobacillus rhamnosus (LGG®) and Bifidobacterium animalis ssp lactis (BB-12®). In clinical trials they have been shown to lower the incidence of infant eczema and infections. Additionally, Bifidobacterium breve (M-16v) and Bifidobacterium longum (BB563) may help to reduce the risk of allergy in infants.
The right probiotics in pregnancy are therefore important to support the health of both mother and baby.
