Captured on December 22, 2014, in Gunung Kidul Regency, in the southeastern region of Yogyakarta, Indonesia, this image depicts a mother holding her 23-year-old child who was born physically and mentally disabled. The Gunung Kidul district has a high prevalence of disabled people, numbering 9,274 in 2012. The disability prevalence in Gunung has a strong linear correlation with anemia in pregnancy, low birth weight, malnourishment and poverty.
Additional Information:
For a woman, eating healthy foods during pregnancy is much more important. She needs more protein, iron, calcium, and folic acid than she did before her pregnancy. She also needs to consume more calories, but "eating for two" doesn't mean eating twice as much. Rather, it means that the foods she eats are the main source of nutrients for both her, and her baby. Sensible, balanced meals combined with regular physical fitness is still the best recipe for good health during her pregnancy.
