Eating During Pregnancy eBook: pregnancy nutrition – how to master healthy eating during pregnancy. 

Credible, science backed information on what to eat during pregnancy, so that you can eat to give your baby the best start in life, while taking care of your own body.

In a recent study, 90% of women in early pregnancy (less than 12 weeks) were found to have incorrect knowledge about pregnancy nutrition.

With so much conflicting information available online about pregnancy nutrition, it can be difficult to sift the fact from fiction.

I studied medicine at the University of Cambridge and have over a decade of experience as a paediatric doctor. Additionally I have a PhD in genetics from University College London. I am a Registered Nutritionist with the Association for Nutrition and was commissioned to write the first degree of it’s kind combining culinary, nutrition and health.

As a mother myself, I wrote this book to help other mums-to-be to have easy access to all the information they need, without endless searching on the internet. 

If you are searching for credible information, look no further, as my book ‘Eating during pregnancy’ is just for you. 

The book is 55 pages of information based on the latest guidance and scientific evidence, with practical tips to help you eat for health during pregnancy. Imagine having the confidence that you are making the best possible choices to feed you and your baby. 

By the end of this book you will understand:

  • Healthy eating during pregnancy
  • About Gestational Diabetes with practical tips to reduce your blood sugar
  • Which supplements you need and those you don’t need to waste your money on
  • Which foods to safely enjoy and which to avoid

Foreword by NHS Obstetrician Dr Brooke Vandermolen, @theOBGYNmum.

“Knowing what is safe to eat and drink in pregnancy can be a complete minefield. Women are often given such over-cautious advice from well-meaning health professionals that it can be difficult to understand what you can actually enjoy whilst you are pregnant.

 Dr Harriet Holme has written a fantastic, and extremely comprehensive guide for anyone navigating pregnancy. She covers topics that often get confused, by giving up-to-date evidence to clear up myths around nutrition.

 I would love all my patients to get a chance to read this guide, which can empower parents-to-be to feel able to make positive choices rather than feeling restricted and misunderstood.”

    Why do we need this book?
    Much of the information given about foods I already knew, but how individual foods affect a pregnancy, I didn’t know. For example, I didn’t know that there’s a possible link between Vitamin D and a decrease in asthma, what the unsafe element is in liquorice and what is the optimum weight gain during pregnancy (and why that is important to know). But what interested me most was the chapter on foetal programming and how ‘foetal nutritional environment’ (p40) may affect your baby’s future health. In addition, I was not told nor knew that painkillers, such as paracetamol and ibuprofen (p45) has shown, in a study, to affect future fertility in a foetus.
    Written in a readable and using evidence-based facts, Dr Holme outlines research about existing nutritional facts to give us a rounded definition of what is safe and what to avoid during pregnancy.
    I wish I had had this when I was pregnant with my two sons.

    I’m so glad I was able to have this nutritional guide during my most recent pregnancy. Even though it was my second pregnancy, I needed a refresher course on what foods to eat, which to avoid, and why. I found this book an amazing resource that was easy to read and reference, as needed, throughout my pregnancy. There are so many pregnancy/expecting mother books out there that can confuse you by giving too much information. Harriet’s book gives you what you need, a confidence that it is scientifically and medically supported, without being overwhelming in an already overwhelming situation.

    Excellent evidence based information.

    Such a helpful book, easy to read and digest. I thought I already knew quite a bit about healthy eating in pregnancy, but I gained lots of new info from this book, and feel I could trust what I was reading as it’s evidence based. Highly Recommended.
