In order for pregnant women and fetuses still get the nutrition intake, here are some suggestions that can be done:

* Do not leave an empty stomach. Try to eat small meals but often.

* Choose foods that are warm because it can make the stomach pain that feels like relaxation.

* If the mother often feel bloated, avoid foods that can trigger bloating include the usual peanut flavor present in ketoprak, gado-gado, satay, dumplings and his kind.

* Limit dishes from coconut milk, glutinous rice, jackfruit, vegetables jackfruit, tamarind vegetables, fruit or acid that can irritate the stomach.

* It is important to avoid smoking, vinegar, coffee because it would endanger the mother or fetus.

* Generally, pregnant women need more blood, to eat foods that contain iron, such as dark green vegetables, tempeh, tofu, green beans, red beans, eggs, fish, and meat. Do not forget to drink the blood booster medicine doctor recommended.

  1. If you drink milk allergy or illness during pregnancy , try replacing it with yogurt . Because yogurt contains protein , calcium , vitamin B and zinc . Calcium in yogurt tends to be higher than milk . If you do not like yogurt , you can add a piece of fruit bananas , berries , dates , or dried fruit . Mixed fruit yogurt are also good for making smoothies .

  2. Cows milk??? Isn’t that full of hormones n antibiotic? Our body don’t even have the right enzymes to break it down. Wouldn’t it make us sick??? How about those lactose intolerant ppl?! Drinking milk will cause diarrhea, bloating and food poisoning especially to pregnant women. I would suggest eating coconut based yogurt.
