A balanced vegetarian diet can provide all the nutrients you need for a healthy pregnancy. If you eat a vegetarian diet, pay special attention to getting enough protein, vitamin B12, calcium, vitamin D, zinc, and iron while you are pregnant and breast-feeding. These nutrients are vital to your fetus's cellular growth, brain and organ development, and weight gain.
Prenatal vitamins are very important for pregnant women who are on a vegan diet.
Talk to your doctor about how to get all the nutrients you need with a vegetarian or vegan diet.
