With the Queen’s Birthday public holiday just a week away I can’t help but think back to the same special day two years ago, this yearly event will forever hold a special place in my heart as it was on this public holiday that I discovered I was pregnant with baby no.4, our little Sybil. After celebrating with my hubby and doing another series of pregnancy tests just to be sure I headed out to the shop.
Some people celebrate their pregnancy by buying something beautiful for the nursery, others go and pick a gorgeous newborn outfit, a sweet cuddly toy or even a pregnancy guide, for me the first stop is always the chemist. Just like for most (expecting) mothers for me pregnancy and a ‘pink bottle’ go hand in hand, during all my pregnancies and while breastfeeding I have religiously taken my Blackmores Pregnancy Vitamins and it always gave me peace of mind knowing I was doing the right thing for my (unborn) baby.
Australia’s leading natural health brand Blackmores has got pregnant and nursing mothers covered with their famous pink bottle, Blackmores NEW and improved Pregnancy & Breast-Feeding Gold ($63.95, 180 tablets). It’s as easy as a daily dose of two small vanilla flavoured capsules that contain 20 important nutrients for mother and baby including folic acid, iodine, DHA and vitamin D3. Did you know being low in vitamin D during pregnancy carries serious healthy risks like decreased birth weight, pre-eclampsia and gestational diabetes?
Obviously we all know eating healthy is important but recent research has revealed that even with a healthy balanced diet many young Australian women are not achieving key nutrient levels recommended for a healthy pregnancy, quite a worry! A supplement that reflects current nutritional recommendations for pregnancy, like Blackmores Pregnancy & Breastfeeding Gold, could correct this and help you give your baby a great start in life.
Many pregnant women are diagnosed with iron deficiency but luckily this common problem is easily corrected with 1 Blackmores Pregnancy Iron ($11.95, 30 tablets) tablet a day. During two of my pregnancies I was described iron supplements and as someone who is very prone to nausea and vomiting I can really appreciate the special low nausea, low constipation form of iron used in the Blackmores Pregnancy Iron.
Aside from the well known Pregnancy & Breast-Feeding Gold capsules the Blackmores Pregnancy range includes several other fantastic products to support mamas-to-be in this special and very important time in their lives, e.g. Blackmores Folate, Blackmores I-Folic and Blackmores Morning Sickness Formula. For those women who are hoping to fall pregnant soon there is Blackmores Conceive Well ($40.95, 56 tablets), an easy way to provide your body with all the essential nutrients needed in preparation of, and in the early stages of, pregnancy.
