”While I was pregnant, I naturally had a strong desire to be extra healthy for my baby. Aside from eating a nutrient-rich diet of vegetables and complex carbohydrates, I tried to cut my sugar intake. I desperately needed to boost my immune system as I was struggling with sleep and trying to ward off infections. During my first trimester, I had UTI, but did not want to take antibiotics as it would disturb the balance of my gut flora, which I was certain would lead to candida flare-up.
Instead, I relied on my morning yogurt drinks and nightly jiggers of 3Cs, and my regular consumption of Feel Well’s delicious yogurts - in smoothies or eaten plain. And Feel Well’s bone broths are packed with minerals like calcium, magnesium, iron, zinc, potassium - all vital during pregnancy.
Not to put too fine a point on it, but caring for one’s gut is especially critical during pregnancy to help ensure optimal birth outcomes. So is taking care of one’s mental, emotional, and spiritual health. Thanks to all that, I am happy to share that I gave birth last June to a healthy and thriving baby boy, weighing a whopping 8.7 lbs!”
