Health kick

Mother & Baby (Australia) - - Bump Benefits -

With a baby on board, you’ve never been more mo­ti­vated to over­haul your diet and life­style habits, from avoid­ing al­co­hol to cut­ting down on caf­feine and junk food. And while good ma­ter­nal health is linked to good brain de­vel­op­ment and a healthy birth weight for your baby, there are plenty of ben­e­fits for you too. With a diet rich in nu­tri­ents needed to make feel-good neu­ro­trans­mit­ters like sero­tonin, you should feel an in­creased vi­tal­ity and fewer mood swings too. “Mums of­ten start to see the ben­e­fits im­me­di­ately, and hang onto the changes once they’ve had their baby,” says Pradnya.
