Falling pregnant and being a new mom is a life changing moment. It is filled with joy, excitement and new experiences like being able to watch your baby and tummy grow and feeling your baby move for the first time. I am currently 22 weeks pregnant with baby number 3 and it is still such a major life changing experience.
During pregnancy your metabolism changes. Tissues change, and hormone levels rise and fall. As an expectant or breastfeeding mom you need extra support for the growth and development of your baby and to help maintain your own good health. Similac® Mom is a complete nutritional low-fat milk-based maternal supplement shake, containing 24 essential vitamins and minerals, protein, DHA (omega-3 fatty acid), and prebiotics. It is scientifically formulated to support your increased nutritional needs during pregnancy and breastfeeding without excess calories, per one to two servings per day.
- Low-fat, low calorie, helps manage weight during pregnancy and while breastfeeding
- Helps build your immune defenses
- Supports healthy digestion
- Helps reduce the risk of iron deficiency anaemia
- Vitamin D and FOS, a prebiotic, have been shown to improve calcium absorption from the gut in adults.
- Improved calcium absorption ensures sufficient calcium is available to support the development of your baby’s bones.
- Provides nutrients to support the development of your child’s brain
- Folic acid helps reduce the risk of neural tube defects
As an expectant or new mom, you have so many other things to focus on, such as getting the nursery ready or caring for your newborn, and nutrition should not be preventing you from enjoying this special time. Simply mix three level scoops of Similac® Mom into 150ml water, once or twice daily, knowing that your nutritional needs are met and you can just focus on being a mom.
Similac® Mom is available at all major pharmacy groups and selected retail outlets as well as online shopping.
