In the long term, however, stress can take its toll on the body, causing everything from high blood pressure to sleep and digestive disorders.

From the moment you start trying for a baby, you have special nutritional needs that continue throughout your pregnancy and whilst you’re breastfeeding.

Especially during this time it is important to follow a varied and balanced diet and a healthy lifestyle. Pregnant women have increased requirements for some nutrients as they also need to supply their unborn baby during this period. Particular care should be taken to ensure an adequate supply of folate. Food supplements Femibion 1 and 2, to be used as a complement to a varied and balanced diet, provide you with folate together with other essential micronutrients for you and your baby.
