As meat and meat products are good source of protein and iron. If you can't digest them you can replace them by other dietary sources like beans lentils chickpeas. For proper diet plan book your appointment. Thank you.

protein help you build your muscle & fight infection.
gestational patient need adequate amount of protein to meet RDA
However ,you can have tofu as alternative.
protein requirements can be meet through plant base too but you need animal source for better absorption
