Q. Is it okay to consume a food based prenatal vitamin during pregnancy while adhering to the Weston A Price pregnancy diet? (I am thinking particularly of the first trimester when morning sickness can drastically cut down on how much and what one is willing to eat.)
Q. Can I drink kombucha during pregnancy?
A. If you are used to drinking kombucha, you can drink it while pregnant. It would be a good thing to drink 4 to 6 ounces with meals. However, if you have not drunk kombucha before, don't start while you are pregnant because occasionally someone has an adverse reaction and we don't want that to happen while you are pregnant. Don't let kombucha be a substitute for your one quart of raw milk per day.
Q. I was told not to consume fermented foods and drinks or raw fish while pregnant.
A. Kefir is very safe for pregnant women, as is raw milk--we recommend 1 qt per day of raw milk for pregnant women.
Q. Is it okay to take a pea-sized frozen piece of cow's liver a day while pregnant? What is the age that one can start children on this?
Q. What to do for a young pregnant woman who wants to eat well but is having a lot of vomiting and aversion to the important foods?
Q. Do you have a suggestion regarding pre-natal vitamins? My doctor recommends me taking them; do I need to take them?
A. Rather than synthetic vitamins, we recommend getting the vitamins you need with a nutrient-dense diet, one that includes cod liver oil for vitamins A and D (cod liver oil is a food). For our recommended diet, see http://www.westonaprice.org/childrens-health/diet-for-pregnant-and-nursing-mothers
