Yes, both pregnancies were meat free vegetarian since I've been vegetarian for over 10 years now. My son's pregnancy what much healthier than my daughter's and much more whole. My daughter's wasn't bad but I had more time to focus on being healthy and eating healthy when I was preggo with my guy.

My OBGYN was only as supportive as an uneducated person can be when it comes to understanding you can get protein from sources other than meat. I hate having to educate doctors about things.

I was meatfree and had a very healthy pregnancy. My midwives were supportive, one was a little concerned about my iron levels, but my levels tested fine.

I was meat free for both and had good pregnancies. My ob had no issue what so ever but his office is in a high veg area.

I was meatfree with all 5 of my pregnancies, never had a doctor who commented on it really.

I am trying. Had a bad week of eating chicken though... But tomorrow I'm back to buying my own groceries (we have a friend staying here and she'll just have to deal with what I cook cause I cant do this no more!) and back to veg we go!
