Please note that I have read through all other similar threads... questions, answers, and comments. But I want the info that is known and pertinent in July 2011 for this particular 'girl'.

What should girl eat and supplement while pregnant to form healthy babby?

Open to suggestions/criticisms/warnings/insight/reports/studies/recommendations/testimonials etc etc.

I second Sara. It would be a really bad idea to get your wife all stressed out worrying about food. There has to be a balance between having the right foods and accommodating a person going through a physical and hormonal roller-coaster. Happiness is just as important as diet.

Remo, welcome to PaleoHacks. Please read this regarding Vitamin A: http://www.westonaprice.org/fat-soluble-activators/vitamin-a-saga I eat grass-fed beef liver and take fermented cod liver oil. Unless you're eating liver from certain arctic animals, it's virtually impossible to overdose on Vitamin A from food sources.

Please watch the liver intake while pregnant. Excess Vitamin A can in crease the chance of a birth defect.

Sometimes I can be a bit "challenged". I just showed my wife this thread, and I was like "Look hun! Look at this chart gilliebean put up from WAP!" She took a 2 second glance and was said "Yah that's the chart we have on our fridge". ME--> "Who, us?" So I walk into our kitchen. Sure enough. There it is. She said it's been there for at least a month. I cook in our kitchen pretty much daily. Major face palm.

Forgive me any mis-wording, but I did not mean to imply she should eat whatever she wants. More so that one should not get overly obsessed and miss the forest through the trees. Some pregnant women can't keep food down. If you were one of those women, it's more important to feed yourself and your baby SOMETHING, rather than not eat and possibly risk both of your health simply because what you CAN keep down is healthier.

@Sara -- yes, obviously, if the only a pregnant woman can keep down is crackers, she has to eat as does her baby ---- that said, I vehemently disagree with what you appear to imply: "eat whatever you want since you are pregnant". This is the common nonsense and a total excuse for not even trying to eat healthy.

The very most important thing is that she eats something. IF THE ONLY THING SHE CAN KEEP DOWN IS CRACKERS THEN SHE SHOULD EAT SOME GODDAMN CRACKERS. I had two very healthy babies not eating Paleo. Paleo may help in some way, but don't stress it. Or anything. Stress is very bad during pregnancy. Foot rubs are good, as are hot baths. Go to every appointment you possibly can. The one my husband had to miss was the first heartbeat. Just thinking about it is causing me to tear. Congratulations, and let your instincts take over. We DO know how to do this.

Jack, I'd add some grass fed beef liver and some healthy fish eggs to that list and I think you're good to go.

I take my recommendations from this list by Chris Masterjohn, on the Weston Price website:

  • Cod Liver Oil to supply 20,000 IU vitamin A and 2000 IU vitamin D per day
  • 1 quart (or 32 ounces) whole milk daily, preferably raw and from pasture-fed cows
  • 4 tablespoons butter daily, preferably from pasture-fed cows
  • 2 or more eggs daily, preferably from pastured chickens
  • Additional egg yolks daily, added to smoothies, salad dressings, scrambled eggs, etc.
  • 3-4 ounces fresh liver, once or twice per week (If you have been told to avoid liver for fear of getting "too much Vitamin A," be sure to read Vitamin A Saga)
  • Fresh seafood, 2-4 times per week, particularly wild salmon, shellfish and fish eggs
  • Fresh beef or lamb daily, always consumed with the fat
  • Oily fish or lard daily, for vitamin D
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil daily, used in cooking or smoothies, etc.
  • Lacto-fermented condiments and beverages
  • Bone broths used in soups, stews and sauces
  • Soaked whole grains (omit)
  • Fresh vegetables and fruits

P.S. Update: I'm pregnant and due in April 2012!
