Pregnancy is a blessing and yes to many it comes after a lot of trial and prayers. So if you are pregnant , thank your stars. Now , this is a really big event of your life and trust me , no matter how much someone advises you , you will always be in for some surprises.
You would have perhaps followed a few sites that give you week by week updates, groups where pregnant women discuss , but more than reading it is important that women genuinely take care of themselves mentally and physically during this period.

You may be eating organic food , but have you made sure that you food is cooked on the right vessel? At right temperature?
Lots of women and men are now moving towards cooking in cast iron , primarily because of the goodness and the iron content that it adds to your food.
The average daily iron intake from foods and supplements is 13.7–15.1 mg/day in children aged 2–11 years, 16.3 mg/day in children and teens aged 12–19 years, and 19.3–20.5 mg/day in men and 17.0–18.9 mg/day in women older than 19. The median dietary iron intake in pregnant women is 14.7 mg/day. At Upciclo we believe that and many studies suggest same that living sustainably is all about making the right choices for yourself and for the environment. Most foods cooked of one cup size will gain about six to eight milligrams of iron after being cooked in cast iron cookware.
