Are you unsure about nutrition and exercise during pregnancy?

Bringing a new life into this world is an exciting experience and one which requires a close look at good nutrition for both you and your growing baby.

But it’s not always easy to know—or understand—what foods you should and shouldn’t be eating.

The same goes for exercise; it’s important to keep yourself healthy, but what exercises should and shouldn’t be done during pregnancy?
