Why is protein important in my prenatal diet?

Dietary protein plays an important role in the growth and development of the baby, meeting the mother’s daily needs, as well as in producing the extra blood necessary for carrying nutrients during the pregnancy. It is recommended an extra 10 grams of protein per day (for single baby being carried) than normal. This approximately comes up to a total of 60 grams per day. Women who are more active may call for slightly higher amounts of protein, which can be decided between you and your practitioner.

Adequate protein may also play a role in preventing pregnancy induced hypertension (PIH) or preeclampsia.
