Fresh Citrus Pregnancy Smoothie
This smoothie is not only refreshing, itâ€™s also a great way to get your daily dose of all-important Vitamin C!
Vitamin C, like that found in oranges and strawberries, is an important prenatal nutrient for both you and your baby. Your body needs it to make collagen, a protein that helps build cartilage, bones, and skin for you and your baby.
Vitamin C also helps your body absorbÂ iron. Studies show that adequate vitamin C intake during pregnancy can prevent the premature rupture of membranesÂ (PROM) and premature birth.
