Pregnancy & Protein: Fact vs. Myth

You want to do what's best for your baby. That includes getting the protein your body needs, and the protein your baby needs for every growing cell.

Myth

If I take prenatal vitamins and eat a healthy diet, I’ll get enough protein for myself and my baby.

Fact

Prenatal vitamins DO NOT contain protein, and while food gives some protein it also gives you extra fat and carbs you don’t need right now. Pregnant and breast feeding women need 25 extra grams of protein per day, 50 extra grams if expecting multiples.

Myth

“Eating for two” means it’s OK to double my typical meal portions, or eat twice as much food throughout the day.

Fact

Protein is key. Pregnant moms mostly need more protein. Adding double doses of extra sugars, fats, and carbs can contribute to unnecessary and unwanted weight gain. Your baby needs nutrients and protein for healthy development. Consuming double your daily portions or eating two of everything packs on extra pounds that aren’t healthy for you (and will be harder to loose post-pregnancy).

Myth

Being pregnant with twins (or multiples) means I should eat more because I’m eating for two (or more).

Fact

Women having multiples need even higher amounts of protein. On average, the recommendation from NAS/IOM (National Academy of Sciences, Institute of Medicine) is an additional 25 grams of protein, and double that if you are expecting multiples. Of course, each mom is unique, so consult with your dietitian.

Myth

Protein supplements taste awful.

Fact

Often that isn’t a myth. In fact, many supplements do taste awful. UNJURY® is the exact opposite. UNJURY® has a clean, fresh taste. There’s no grittiness or aftertaste. UNJURY® comes in 7 delicious flavors – all very low in sugar. And you’ll find several recipes and videos of how to mix UNJURY® into your favorite foods and drinks.

Myth

There’s nothing you can do for morning sickness.

Fact

Maybe you have heard that saltines can help. That’s true, but newer research says that protein can help with morning sickness. UNJURY® Chicken Soup flavor is particularly helpful. It’s a comforting savory alternative that lots of moms choose when they have trouble tolerating other foods and liquids. One serving delivers the same amount of protein as 3 eggs.

Myth

Is UNJURY® good for my baby? I thought I was supposed to eat fruits and vegetables?

Fact

Fruits and vegetables are good. But they aren’t good sources of protein, and your baby needs protein for every cell as it grows and develops. The protein in UNJURY® is whey protein isolate that comes from cows milk, and it is trusted and recommended at America’s Top Hospitals. UNJURY® is medical quality protein™. In fact, an experienced Registered Dietitian originally developed it for cancer patients, so we understand the importance of pure, high quality ingredients and provide ONLY the best for you and your baby.

Beating Morning Sickness

When you are experiencing Morning Sickness, you’re facing two problems:

  1. Morning Sickness makes you feel ill
  2. Morning Sickness can keep you from getting the protein you and your baby need

What’s the solution?

Protein can help you FEEL BETTER:

70% of expecting mothers experience morning sickness. The three most common symptoms of Morning Sickness are nausea, vomiting, and changes in appetite.

Battling morning sickness is more than just avoiding foods that seem to make you feel queasy or nauseous. Pregnant moms not only need protein, but it can help beat the symptoms of morning sickness.

When pregnant moms battling morning sickness are struggling to find your appetite, and have a hard time keeping anything down, they use UNJURY.

Expecting moms tell us UNJURY® Chicken Soup flavor works well during difficult times of pregnancy, such as morning sickness. In addition, UNJURY® Unflavored can be used in a wide variety of foods and beverages.

Beat Morning Sickness for you and your baby with PROTEIN:

Pregnant and breastfeeding women need 25 extra grams of protein per day, 50 extra is expecting multiples. One serving of UNJURY® provides 20 grams of protein per serving - as much as 3 eggs - without the fat and cholesterol.

Protein for Twins & Multiples

Pregnant women and breast-feeding moms need an additional 25 grams of protein each day. If you’re expecting multiples, you need an additional 50 grams of protein each day, according to NAS/IOM (National Academy of Sciences, Institute of Medicine).

Pre-natal Protein

For most moms who are expecting, your daily protein intake should be 100-130 grams. Moms expecting twins or multiples should be getting an additional 25 grams (125-155 total grams) of protein every day.

If you’re expecting multiples, follow this simple math to determine the recommend amount of protein you need:

75-105 grams daily recommended protein for women
+ 25 grams of protein for Baby 1
+ 25 grams of protein for Baby 2+
= 125- grams of protein DAILY

Of course, each mom is unique, so consult with your dietitian or call 800-517-5111 to speak with one of UNJURY’s Registered Dietitians.

Protein for Breastfeeding Moms

Protein is an important nutrient for moms and their babies during the breastfeeding period. Mothers who choose to breastfeed continue to need the additional 25 grams of protein daily.

While breastfeeding, women need more protein and essential nutrients to meet the needs of her baby’s early growth and development. Breast-feeding mothers have higher requirements for most nutrients because many nutrients including vitamins and minerals are used to produce breast milk. Lactating women need around 75-105 grams of protein per day.

How Much Protein is Enough?

Most women need approximately 75-100 grams of protein every day.

Pregnant women and breast-feeding moms need an additional 25 grams of protein, which means your daily protein intake should be 100-130 grams.

If you’re expecting multiples, you need an additional 50 grams of protein each day, according to NAS/IOM (National Academy of Sciences, Institute of Medicine).

Of course, each mom is unique, so consult with your dietitian or call 1-800-517-5111 to speak with one of UNJURY's Registered Dietitians.

Daily Recommended Protein Amount (grams)

If you’re expecting twins or breastfeeding for two or more, your daily protein intake should be 125-155 grams.

Are You Really Eating for Two?

During pregnancy, you may feel like you should be “eating for two” (or three, or more). This doesn’t mean doubling up on portions, or eating more meals throughout the day. It’s important for you and the health of your baby that you pay attention to the PROTEIN.

Eating twice or doubling your portions is just adding double doses of extra sugars, fats, and carbs that contribute to unnecessary weight gain. Your baby needs nutrients and protein for healthy development.

Instead of consuming double your daily portions or eating two of everything can pack on extra pounds that aren’t healthy for you (and will be harder to loose post-pregnancy), find ways to add protein.

Protein For Baby

Know the Pros of PROTEIN for You and Your Baby

Growing babies need protein. This nutrient is found in every cell in your baby’s body. Protein is important to your baby’s growth and development – from their bones, brain, skin, muscles, fingers and toes, to their digestive, respiratory, and nervous systems and sensory (eyes, ears, smell, touch) systems.

During pregnancy, expecting mothers need an additional 25 grams of protein, per day, per baby. Post-pregnancy, research shows breast-feeding moms need around 100-130 grams of protein daily.

Your bundle of joy is growing and developing at a rapid pace. Protein is crucial for your baby’s growth, especially during the second and third trimesters.

Protein for Mom of Twins or Multiples

During pregnancy, you are supporting the growth and development of every cell of your baby. Moms of multiples have double, triple, or multiple times the responsibility to make sure their babies are getting the protein they need for healthy development for every bone, tissue, muscle, etc.

Moms of multiples often experience one or all of these issues during pregnancy:

Feeling Full on Less Food:

There’s not enough room for a full stomach because the growing babies take up too much space….especially during the last trimester. Protein is a Priority!! When eating a meal or large snack is uncomfortable, you have options. Instead of avoiding food, or sacrificing nutrition, moms can enjoy protein dense foods. These include: UNJURY’s Strawberry Lemonade Crystal Light (Just one drink contains 20 grams of protein) and UNJURY’s Protein’d JELLO pops (10 grams of protein per popsicle).

Weight Gain caused by Eating for Two (or more)

During pregnancy, you may feel like you should be “eating for two” (or three, or more). This doesn’t mean doubling up on portions, or eating more meals throughout the day. It’s important for you and the health of your baby that you pay attention to the PROTEIN.

Instead of consuming double your daily portions or eating two of everything can pack on extra unnecessary and unwanted pounds that aren’t healthy for you (and will be harder to loose post-pregnancy), find ways to add protein.

Constantly Hungry

You’re going to be hungry. Moms of multiples need to keep their body strong AND provide enough protein to their growing babies. Research shows that protein satisfies hunger longer, plus reaching for a protein-rich snack is a much healthier option than temporarily satisfying a growling stomach with foods that are high in sugar, carbohydrates, and fat. Snack smarter.

Weight Management

It’s essential to get adequate PROTEIN post-pregnancy, especially for mothers who want to manage their weight.

Pack in the PROTEIN. Don’t Pack on the Pounds!

For post-pregnancy weight management and weight loss, protein will give your body what it needs and will help you feel full and satisfied more than less healthy food choices.

New moms, especially breast-feeding mothers, should avoid restrictive weight loss diets. Losing 2-4 pounds a month usually will not negatively affect the milk supply for your baby. However, losing more than 4-5 pounds a month is not recommended.

The First UNJURY® Baby

The First UNJURY® Baby

A friend found out she was expecting, with the baby due about 24 months after her first baby.

During this second pregnancy, she used UNJURY® regularly, and it turns out that the second baby was quite a bit larger at birth than the first.

The dad began referring to the second baby as “The UNJURY® baby”.

The UNJURY® Baby StorySlide 3 of 6

The Second UNJURY® Baby

A health professional we know was expecting twins, and started using UNJURY® Chicken Soup during the early months of the pregnancy, to help with morning sickness.

During the pregnancy, a problem developed where one of the babies was not growing as fast—it was smaller, and the problem was serious.

One of the ways to try to address the problem was to increase protein intake a lot. The mom did that, using UNJURY. In the end, the twins were not only both fine, but they were both unusually large for twins – about 7 pounds each.
The Second UNJURY® Baby One of the benefits of being larger than average twins is that it helps them avoid the NICU (Neonatal Intensive Care Unit). According to one federal study, about 30 percent of all twins end up in a neonatal intensive care unit.

The UNJURY® Baby StorySlide 4 of 6

The Third UNJURY® Baby

As we told the stories of the first UNJURY® Babies, we heard of more.

Another mom expecting twins used UNJURY® and her babies were unusually large.

These twins didn’t need to go to the NICU either.

Use UNJURY® and see (the dietitian) and you'll have bigger babies.

The UNJURY® Baby StorySlide 5 of 6

The Fourth UNJURY® Baby

We heard of a fourth mom who started using UNJURY® early on in her pregnancy, for morning sickness, and throughout the pregnancy.

The obstetrician commented on the large size of the baby…

“Use UNJURY® and see (the dietitian) and you’ll have bigger babies.”
We shared these stories with a Registered Dietitian we know, one who works with a physician who is a perinatologist – an obstetrician who works with multiple pregnancies and other high risk pregnancies. We asked if she had observed anything like them.

She replied, “oh yes, the perinatologist tells the patients, “Use UNJURY® and see (the dietitian) and you’ll have bigger babies”.*

* This is the specific advice of one perinatologist to her own patients. Consult your own doctor for advice specific to your own needs.
