Publisher's Summary

Prenatal nutrition can be confusing. A lot of the advice you have been given about what to eat (or what not to eat) is well-meaning, but frankly, outdated or not evidenced-based. In Real Food for Pregnancy, you will get clear answers on what to eat and why, with research to back up every recommendation. 

Author and specialist in prenatal nutrition Lily Nichols, RDN, CDE has taken a long and hard look at the science and discovered a wide gap between current prenatal nutrition recommendations and what foods are required for optimal health in pregnancy and for your baby's development. There has never been a more comprehensive and well-referenced resource on prenatal nutrition. With Real Food for Pregnancy as your guide, you can be confident your food and lifestyle choices support a smooth, healthy pregnancy.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Get this book

I just finished this audio book and only wish I had it prior to my first pregnancy. At least I feel better informed when trying to conceive #2 and feel much better about providing my growing children with the nourishment that they need. I think all Americans should read this book, not only women, and not only pregnant woman. I'm saying this because the "Standard American Diet" is pathetic. I have been a self-proclaimed foodie for over 20 years. I love ethnic foods and have a great respect for cultures that focus on fresh ingredients and actually cooking. I love that the book references other cultures and the foods they incorporated during conception and pregnancy. I think our culture has become one that relies on a quick pill to fix everything and a vitamin to nourish us. If you are someone that enjoys food and cooking and wants to provide the best for your body and your baby's body, read this book! My only regret is that I didn't buy the hard book as it would be a great resource to refer back to with future questions.

Best book for pregnancy

The book is very complete and understandable. There’s a lot of research and studies are cited. The author is a great narrator as well. Very worth listening! I highly recommend.

BEST book out there! A REAL guide.

Started listening pre pregnancy finished in the 2nd trimester, re-read certain chapters just to really memorize and cement the info. Was consistent with other well researched books on epigenetics. (The aluminum in the brain build up part isn't quite accurate with regards to Alzheimer's but it would have been TMI for the average reader and otherwise ALL the research is very good/well presented). I wrote the author and got and instant reply from her assistant! As it turns out here is how to access the PDF for the inserts : The pdf download is located in your Audible account.

Mandatory reading for pregnant women

Lily has outdone herself in her latest book. She doesn't just tell you what to eat during pregnancy, she presents an incredibly well researched basis for every recommendation she makes. She questions the current nutritional guidelines, while providing you with ample evidence to explain why. Lily goes beyond food to discuss numerous critical topics of importance in pregnancy from toxin exposure and exercise to postpartum nutrition and breastfeeding. This is the book I wish I had during my first pregnancy, and if you happen to find this book before or during pregnancy, you don't know how fortunate you are.
