Protiva is the only clinically-proven protein drink specifically developed for pregnant women and new moms. Clinical studies have shown pregnant women require 30-50% more protein during their pregnancy and while recovering from childbirth.
Many women have difficulty reaching these protein requirements through their normal diet. Protiva Protein Formulas are clinically proven and all natural. Available in two different formulations, Protiva Pregnancy and Protiva New Mom are both Non GMO, preservative, allergen, lactose, gluten and soy free. Moms finally have a choice for a great tasting and clinically proven formula for them and their baby.
We all know that diet affects pregnancy. Eating a balanced diet is so important for mom and baby. But there are some foods we need quite a bit more of. Here's a breakdown on how diet plays a role in your pregnancy and what you should eat a little more of!
You can buy lactation cookies, or you can make your own at home with Protiva. These Chocolate Chip lactation cookies are doing double duty by hitting the spot when you want something sweet, but also helping new moms boost their milk supply!
And did we mention they're dairy and grain free? Get the recipe here.
We all crave a a lot of different things when we're pregnant. Aside from the ice cream, olives - or whatever it is you crave, there are a few foods that are HUGE helpers and incredibly important to our health, from the beginning of pregnancy and beyond! READ MORE...
