Yeah, that seems really extreme. My midwives do have a policy about eating well, but they just ask about what I am eating and want to see that I am eating lots of fruits and veggies and trying not to overload on the sweets. One midwife did say that she had noticed that women who eat a pint of ice cream every night did tend to have bigger babies (I was craving ice cream)- but I am at about a pint every week or two so I think I am ok! I think that I would definitely meet with her again and ask if this diet is a requirement. Even though she wouldn't really ever know if you didn't follow it, i think that being so extreme in this area may make me feel uncomfortable overall having her as my midwife. I would be worried that my birth wouldn't be what i wanted either....
