Bananas , which help remedy morning sickness for pregnant women , are a good source of potassium , vitamin B-6, vitamin C and fibre .
The National Institutes of Health recommends for pregnant women to eat three to four servings of banana every day .
Here are some benefits of this delicious fruit for pregnant women :

200 grams of banana contains about 10 mg of natural calcium. Known for the development of bones and skeletal system at all ages , calcium is also helpful in speeding up the neurotransmitter in the process of muscle contraction in the development of the foetus in the womb .

Contains folic acid
The benefits of folic acid to a pregnant woman cannot be overemphasised as it plays a major role in the development of the nerve , brain and spine . Bananas help to prevent folic acid deficiency which causes a baby to be born prematurely, it also reduces the risk of birth defects .

Boosts energy

For mothers facing the last trimester and postpartum stages , bananas contain about 28 grams of sugar in each 225 gram . It also contains three natural sugars ( glucose, fructose and sucrose) which can boost the energy of pregnant women .

Reduces digestive disorders
Constipation has become increasingly common among pregnant women . Bananas help reduce abdominal bloating and can smoothen bowel movement. Pregnant women can increase the intake of banana as it contains fibre which helps improve bowel movements.
