    I noticed that you do not have any information about health and nutrition during pregnancy. I realize that pregnant students/staff are not as common in the university setting as in some others, but we do exist. I am a graduate student, and am about to begin my second trimester. It would be great to see some health and nutrition information available for expectant parents. Thanks!
