Centre for Pregnancy Nutrition

Organisation name
Centre for Pregnancy Nutrition
The Centre for Pregnancy Nutrition provides information on nutrition during pregnancy to pregnant women and those planning pregnancy who have concerns about any aspects of their diet and possible effects on the outcome of their pregnancy. Its services are also available to others including health professionals and the media. It runs a helpline run by staff able to answer questions on the following:

Energy requirements in pregnancy.
Vitamin and mineral requirements in pregnancy.
Possible beneficial or harmful effects of all types of food for pregnant or breastfeeding mothers.
The Centre has also established a database of scientific papers related to nutrition in pregnancy. It is intended that any advice given over the telephone will be as up to date as possible but strictly based on valid completed scientific experiments rather than on speculation or theory. Staff at the Centre are happy to help with enquiries from the press, hospital dietetic departments, other dietary advisers and fellow members of the scientific community.
