It?s such a cliché but I wish I had spent my pregnancy at the movies, travelling, and out painting the town red ? now it seems like years since I did any of those things.

Children: twins due in Dec 2008

Renata has been developing food and beverage products for 10 years and is currently the Senior Food Technologist at Agilex Flavors and Fragrances Inc. She was excited to get the Glow Mama project as she was around 7 months pregnant with twins at the time. ?I really tried to make Glow Mama refreshing, light and not too sweet ? it wasn?t an easy job with all those vitamins, minerals and fiber in there too. I?m very pleased with how it turned out.?

Best Pregnancy/New Motherhood Insider Tip: Eat as healthy as you can, you can decide what you eat but they can?t, so eat food that you enjoy and has benefits for your inside growing family.
