Quick Reference

Pregnant women have slightly increased energy and protein requirements compared with their needs before pregnancy, although there are metabolic adaptations in early pregnancy which result in laying down increased reserves for the metabolic stress of the last trimester, and high requirements for iron and calcium. These increased needs are reflected in the increased reference intakes for pregnancy.
