Mother & Baby - - BUMP TO BIRTH -

OATS Fluc­tu­at­ing blood-sugar lev­els can cause dizzi­ness, es­pe­cially in the first trimester. Start the day with a steam­ing bowl of oats to help reg­u­late your blood-glu­cose lev­els. MILK Trou­ble sleep­ing? A mug of warm milk half an hour be­fore bed could help im­prove your snooze. Dairy con­tains tryp­to­phan, an amino acid which helps in­crease lev­els of mela­tonin, the sleep-in­duc­ing hor­mone. Choose semi-skimmed milk over full fat, as it also con­tains more cal­cium and pro­tein. SALMON Achy back? Omega-3 fatty acids found in salmon could help re­lieve back pain by calm­ing in­flam­ma­tion in your blood ves­sels and nerves. Aim to eat the oily fish twice a week to keep lev­els topped up and keep back aches in check.
