BetterBump -your maternal health and lactation bar, has been carefully developed by a prominent dietitian specialising in good maternal health before, during and after pregnancy, in conjunction with a leading food scientist. A prebiotic has been included because before and during pregnancy as well as whilst feeding good gut health is important for both mother and baby. This bar contains ingredients (including oats) that may support normal milk production (lactation) during feeding.
BetterBump is the perfect healthy, delicious and convenient snack for busy mothers, and is designed to supplement a healthy balanced diet, plenty of rest and fluid during this magical time in your life.
How does BetterBump work?
How does it work?
BetterBump contains the following active ingredients:
Work together with Probiotics to protect our body from harmful bacteria, keeping the digestive system working properly. Can also help with weight control, keeping cholesterol levels low and blood sugars in balance, speed up transit time of waste, and assisting with the prevention of Colon Cancer, and improving heart health.
Helps the body to produce and maintain new cells, keeping your blood healthy. Beginning folic acid supplementation before conception significantly reduces the incidence of birth defects known as neural tube defects such as spina bifida and anencephaly. Woman who consume Folic Acid have a reduced risk of developing high blood pressure and anemia.
Pregnant women should be taking Iodine supplements before during and after conception. Iodine helps your baby’s brain and nervous system develop. A lack of Iodine during pregnancy has been linked to miscarriage, preterm delivery and still birth.
When pregnant a woman’s body can absorb greater amounts of Calcium which becomes especially important during the final 20 weeks of pregnancy. As a fetus’s skeleton develops, it needs a great amount of calcium. Calcium during pregnancy helps mothers keep their own health strong while also shielding the health of their unborn babies.
During pregnancy, extra iron is needed for your growing baby and placenta, especially in the second and third trimester. When pregnant the amount of blood increases almost by 50% so you need more iron to produce more haemoglobin. An iron deficiency during pregnancy is associated with preterm delivery, low birth weight and infant mortality.
