Blog #1 – Pregnant in a Pandemic (part 1)
Hello everyone. It’s been a while since I’ve written anything, but you’ll soon see why. I’m pregnant, but it doesn’t quite feel like celebration time with everything we have going on at the moment.
This blog has been a long time coming. I was previously planning to write about veganism and pregnancy, but unfortunately I had a couple of miscarriages, so although I was holding off publishing until after my dating scan, those blogs never got around to being made public.
This time, I’ve waited for my anomaly scan before I even wrote my first pregnancy blog but, wow, what a time we find ourselves in now. So my blog isn’t just going to be about the pregnancy journey whilst vegan, but also about getting through pregnancy during a pandemic! All of this means I’ll have even more to cover, but hopefully if you are also pregnant and on lockdown, it will give you something to read during those long days of isolation, and help you to feel that you are not alone in this.
I’m hoping to cover everything I was going to before the world went into meltdown – nutrition, vitamins, cravings, morning sickness and other considerations of pregnancy from a vegan perspective. But I’ll also share my experiences of being pregnant during the Coronavirus pandemic – being on lockdown, avoiding risks of infection and attending appointments. I’ll also try to keep you updated on the latest guidance.
If there are other topics that you are interested in, or if you would like to ask me a question, please feel free. I might not be able to cover everything, but with plenty of time on my hands, I’ll certainly try.
Thanks for reading,
The Vegan Doctor.
