How DNA affects our nutritional needs

When you find out you’re pregnant, it’s such an exciting and unbearable time. There are so many things to do and think about! It is normal for women to start questioning their lifestyle choices and the products they use. Maybe you want to start getting more active. Maybe you want to reduce the stress in your life. And you may want to rethink what you ate in your diet. We all know that nutrition during pregnancy is important, but it can be confusing. Many women are not sure what exactly to eat each trimester. And what one woman should eat during pregnancy is often different from another, especially when we look at our DNA.
