So saturated fat is very nourishing to our bodies and it can be very healthy for the mom and the baby. A baby’s brain is going to be running on fat. You need fat to help develop a brain. So helping with proper development fat is going to be vitally important, especially saturated fat. Then the essential fats, which would be like the Omega-3’s and the Omega-6’s are going to be so important that you get that nutrition in your diet, whether you’re eating it or supplementing.
