Wellness Expert Jamie Hess Teams with One A Day® to Help Expectant Moms Support Their Pregnancy and Postpartum

Pregnancy is stressful already, and expectant mothers across the world are dealing with a host of new issues related to COVID-19. Recently, Wellness Expert Jamie Hess teamed with One A Day® and YourUpdateTV to discuss some tips to help expectant moms support their pregnancy and postpartum.

Some common issues expecting moms are facing include: Partners being banned from delivery rooms. The fear of contracting COVID-19 from the hospital or a doctor’s visit. Breastfeeding concerns, and alternatively, shortages of baby formula at retailers. Social distancing woes and heightened concerns keeping expectant mothers from engaging in prenatal fitness routines.

Supporting your pregnancy start to finish is crucial to giving your baby a healthy start. Choline plays a critical role during the prenatal period, yet less than 10% of US pregnant women are meeting the recommended intake. One A Day®, the #1 OB/GYN recommended prenatal vitamin brand, has recently introduced the One A Day® Prenatal Advanced Complete Multivitamin with Brain Support. It has three brain-essential nutrients that work together to support a baby’s healthy development: Choline, Folic Acid and DHA. Last but not least, it includes additional key nutrients to help support mom’s overall health, too!

In addition to being diligent about daily One a Day® vitamins, a healthy diet is the next best thing you can do to support a healthy pregnancy. Fresh fruits and veggies are crucial so for those nervous entering the grocery store because of social distancing, consider having fresh produce delivered. Brightly colored fruits are best for Vitamin C and dark leafy greens provide calcium and iron, both critical for good fetal health. Also look for good sources of protein along with healthy fats like nuts, and avocados. Finally, increased fiber intake and water are super important during pregnancy to keep the body regular and to keep moms comfortable!
