Eating the right foods and maintaining a healthy diet during and after your pregnancy is very important! Not only for your own health, but also the health of your baby. Eating right will help your baby develop and give your body the proper nutrients it needs to fully recover. This could also potentially affect breastfeeding practices (which you may learn more about here)! To help you along the way we’ve put together this list of our top 5 books for eating right during your pregnancy – check them out below.

Eating for Pregnancy by Catherine Jones

This product was recommended by Linda Morgan from MotivationNook

This book is the ultimate nutrition guide and cookbook for expectant moms. While all pregnant women want to eat what’s best for their baby, not all feel that they have the time or energy to properly plan. In this book, the authors explain about the different stages of fetal development, body changes, and nutritional needs. They also include yummy recipes and meal ideas, even for vegans, vegetarians, and those on gluten-free diets.

Your Complete Vegan Pregnancy by Reed Mangels

This product was recommended by Stephanie Mantilla from Mommysaurus

The author has a PhD and is a registered dietician. For someone who wants to eat a healthy plant-based or vegan diet while pregnant, this book is a must. The author walks you through vegan nutrition and what foods to eat to get certain nutrients. The book also goes through the pregnancy trimesters to bring everything together. The included recipes in the later chapters take all the guessing out of what you should eat in a day.

Expecting Better By Emily Oster

This product was recommended by Lynell Ross from Zivadream

I am recommending this book as it brings new perspective that is data driven to long held beliefs about pregnancy. Emily Oster researched the accepted rules of pregnancy, and discovered that many are wrong. She addresses the issues of caffeine, alcohol and separated out fact from fiction. This is a meaningful guide that also covers all aspects of pregnancy. Updated in 2019, it covers what you need to know from a modern perspective.

Real Food For Pregnancy by Lily Nichols

This product was recommended by Stefanie Lesser from Hope & Love Radio

The author, in her research, discovered a wide gap between prenatal recommendations and what is required for optimal health during pregnancy as well as the baby’s development. In Real Food For Pregnancy, you will get clear answers on what to eat during pregnancy with research to back up every recommendation. This guide is comprehensive and is a well referenced resource. Real Food For Pregnancy, will give you the confidence you need when choosing the right diet for one’s pregnancy.

Eating for Pregnancy by Catherine Jones

This product was recommended by Sneha from SkateboardSeek

In this well-thought-out and comprehensive book, women are provided with a wealth of information about nutrition for pregnancy and much more! It was refreshing to see that the authors included information for several types of diets including those dealing with diabetes and people who follow a vegetarian or vegan way of eating. This is a great resource chock full of recipes and guidance for pregnant women.
