Pregnancy is a time of massive changes in the Pregnant Lady’s body, as well as that of the baby. Pregnant women undergo changes not just to accommodate their growing baby, but also to prepare for delivery & childbirth. All these transformations spread across trimesters means that the nutrient requirements of the mother also change – both to support her health and to ensure optimal growth & development of her baby. This makes the need for a Trimester-Wise Prenatal essential, that can provide customized nutrients for each trimester to the pregnant lady to meet her dynamic nutrient requirements.

To better visualize the changes & transformations that occur during pregnancy, let’s take this up trimester-wise.

Trimester 1

The first trimester of pregnancy involves the implantation of the fertilized egg in the uterine wall. Most women are unaware that this process is taking place and don’t realize they are pregnant until a few weeks later. The placenta begins to form. The face, eyes, nose, mouth, and all major organs are formed in this trimester and continue to develop during pregnancy.

During this trimester the baby’s internal structures form that grow and develop during pregnancy, and into the child’s adulthood.

The important nutrients to focus on during Trimester 1 are –

  • Folic Acid – Folic Acid is crucial for the baby’s neural tube formation during its 1st trimester. Trimacare 1 Prenatal Tablets contain L-Methyl Folate, a form of Folic Acid that is seven times more bioavailable and is absorbed even by people who have the MTHFR gene mutation.
  • Iodine – helps in the production of Maternal Thyroid Hormones & supports the development of the baby’s brain and nervous system.
  • Vitamin A – supports the development of baby’s vision & maintains maternal eye health. It also has a role to play in a baby’s organ development.
  • Vitamin B12 – Essential for baby’s Neural tube formation, brain and spine development and produces DNA & Red Blood Cells in conjugation with Folate. Also aids the mother’s metabolism to improve maternal mood, energy, and stress levels.
  • Vitamin D – Supports the absorption of calcium, required for the mother’s & baby’s bone health.
  • Vitamin C – Helps in collagen production which supports normal growth, healthy tissue & wound healing. It also increases immunity and the absorption of iron to prevent anemia.
  • Zinc – Supports wound healing, immunity & cell division. It also prevents preterm birth & low-birth weight.
  • Anti-Emetic & Vitamin B6 – Reduces the Nausea & Vomiting associated with the first trimester.

Trimacare 1 contains all these nutrients in the correct proportions, to help you meet the specific nutrients of the first trimester.

Trimester 2

In this trimester, the fetus doubles its size, and the movements of the fetus can be felt by the mother. Hearing also starts to develop during this trimester.

Trimester 2 also requires Iodine, Vitamin C, Vitamin D, and Zinc like the first trimester. The additional nutrients required in this trimester are –

  • Iron – Supports the formation of the baby’s blood supply. It is also essential for hemoglobin production, oxygen transport, and thereby reducing maternal fatigue. The unique Time-Release Iron in Trimacare 2 is great for excellent absorption without the gastrointestinal side effects of conventional iron tablets.
  • Omega-3 – It is essential for the baby’s brain and eyes development. The EPA supports the transportation of DHA into a baby’s cells and is important for mediating DHA concentration across the placenta. It also prevents Pre-Term Birth & Low-Birth Weight in the baby.
  • Calcium – Essential for the development of a baby’s bones & teeth and regulates muscle contraction & nerve function.

Trimacare 2 helps you get your required Iron Supplementation without the uncomfortable gastrointestinal side effect associated with conventional Iron Pills due to its Slow Release Iron formulation, making it an advanced prenatal supplement for Pregnant Women.

Trimester 3

The “Finer Details” of the baby develop in Trimester 3 . Eyelashes and taste buds develop during this trimester, and major development completes. The fetus gains about half a pound a week and the mother’s internal organs adjust to allow the baby to grow, and the baby turns heads down for delivery. The bones of the baby harden but the skull is flexible to allow squeezing through the birth canal during childbirth.

Along with Iron, Iodine, Zinc, Calcium, Vitamin C, Vitamin D, and Omega-3 as in the previous trimesters, demands for these specific nutrients peak –

  • Magnesium – It prevents growth retardation in the foetus & maternal hypertension. It also treats pregnancy-induced leg cramps in the mother.
  • Vitamin K – Supports labour by reducing the chances of bleeding.
  • Bowel Regulator – Helps effectively relieve maternal constipation.

The third trimester is full of anticipation for the newborn’s arrival, and the mother deserves to feel her best to bond with the baby. Magnesium & Bowel regulator in Trimacare 3 helps eliminate uncomfortable pregnancy symptoms of Trimester 3 so that the mother can enjoy this trimester.
