Maternal Diets before Pregnancy and Its Effects on Birth Outcomes and Child Health and Well-being
Maternal diet has a significant role in ensuring successful pregnancy outcomes for the mother and her newborn. Nutrition requirements are generally higher in pregnancy to maintain maternal adaptations and the delivery of nutrients to the fetus. In addition, preconception diet is also important for an ideal onset and development of pregnancy since early pregnancy is a critical period for placental and fetal tissue developments. Therefore, maternal diets before pregnancy could have a profound effect on birth and child outcomes.
