You may also have questions about the truth behind nutrition
information you obtain from other resources, such as magazines and
television. Dietitians can provide you with research-based
information to help you separate fact from fiction and have a
healthy, worry-free pregnancy. Of course, questions about nutrition
do not stop after pregnancy and dietitians are also a great
resource for information regarding breastfeeding and other topics
related to infant and childhood nutrition.
