What is allowed in pregnancy: YES or NO?

Regular bowel habits can be disrupted during pregnancy. Haemorrhoids may also occur (for the first time or more often than usual). If you have constipation increasing fibre intake (increased amounts of fibre in: bran, fresh and dried fruits and vegetables) can help significantly. It is also recommended that you drink plenty of water and other fluids throughout the day. Do not use laxatives, enemas or any other medication without first consulting your doctor.

Today, maternity clothes are available in a wide range of prices and styles. If you wear tights, choose some special maternity tights because the usual tights that are commercially available are likely to reduce blood flow.

Do not do vaginal washes with special soaps while you are pregnant.

You can continue to work safely for as long as you feel fit, but avoid strenuous physical exertion.

Particularly beneficial is the daily consumption of foods rich in iron such as beef, pork, chicken, eggs, lamb, fish, peanut butter, dried peas and beans, green leafy vegetables and nuts.
