Childbirth is known as the miracle of life, but when you’re pregnant it doesn’t always feel like such a miracle. Unfortunately, pregnant women don’t just have to deal with morning sickness, backaches, swollen ankles, cravings, and fatigue. Pregnancy can also lower your immune system, leaving you extra susceptible to ailments like the flu and the common cold.
The worry and the stress that surrounds all of us just now is mind-boggling. Now if you are pregnant we can imagine the additional stress of the unknown. Your diet and your lifestyle play a very important role in ensuring that your immunity doesn’t suffer at this point.
