The 1st Month – Early Development

Congratulations - you’re pregnant! Whether you’re a first time mom or a seasoned parent, news about a new pregnancy will bring excitement and joy not only to you, but to your loved ones too.

Believe it or not, your little one starts to develop essential physical attributes and functions even as early as the first month. At the end of your first month of pregnancy, your baby will only be about ¼ inch long – a size of a grain! However, important functions have already started to develop.

Here are growth milestones you can expect during your first month as an expecting mom:

  • During this point, the placenta starts to develop. The placenta is an organ that transfers nutrients and oxygen to the baby, making it an essential part of your pregnancy journey.
  • The neural tube from which the brain, spinal cord and nerves will sprout, starts to develop.
  • As early as Day 28, baby’s brain cells and brain connections already start developing!

As early as the first month, it is important to ensure you’re getting the essential nutrients to aid in baby’s development. Anmum Materna contains the vitamins and nutrients of Folate, Vitamin B12, Zinc, and GA + SA which are important for this stage. So let Anmum Materna be your partner at the start of this wonderful journey!
