GestFeed - Mobile App for Nutrition Counseling for Pregnant Women

gestfeediconPregnancy is a time to make healthy food choices in order to gain only the necessary weight for the mother and the baby's development, not a time to make restricted diets or think about losing weight. On the other hand, it also does not mean overeating or "eating for two."
During the nine months, pregnant women need to follow nutritional advice so that they have a balanced diet at each moment of their gestation, evaluating and controlling the effects, one of which we will make available through the application to be developed.
Nutritional status in pregnancy is critical to the physical well-being of the expectant mother and to the growth of the baby in the uterus. It is very important that the expectant mother clarifies the doubts with her doctor regarding nutrition and weight gain that is more appropriate to her condition.
Recommendations for weight gain during pregnancy vary according to the weight of the woman before becoming pregnant and should seek a balance between as many health benefits as possible for the mother and the baby.
