Prenatal & Postpartum Nutrition Consulting

A holistic approach to support your nutritional needs during every stage of pregnancy, postpartum & breastfeeding.

Pregnancy Nutrition

Pregnancy can be such an exciting time, but it can also be a time full of unknowns and uncertainty. You have many decisions to make over the course of your pregnancy. While you’re picking out baby names and organizing baby clothes, it’s important to make your nutrition a priority as well.

Proper nutrition is essential for both you and your baby, but figuring out what to eat during pregnancy can be very confusing. The nutrients that are supplied to your baby must come from the foods you eat, otherwise, they will be taken from your own body. This depletion of your reserves can have many unfortunate consequences on your own health. 

With the support of a Certified Nutrition Consultant, it’s possible to reduce your chances of “morning” sickness (more appropriately: all day, any time nausea!), fatigue, constipation, heartburn, mood swings, pre-eclampsia, anemia, gestational diabetes, postpartum depression, and more.

Nourishing your pregnancy will help your baby build solid bones, a strong immunity, healthy tissue and organs. It’s also possible to reduce their risk of birth defects, low birth weight, allergies, conditions such as eczema or asthma, and many potential health problems later in life.

Providing your body with the proper nutrition will help provide your baby with the best start possible.

Nutrition consulting will empower you with the knowledge and confidence that you are doing the best for your baby and your body.

Postpartum Nutrition

So much of a new mother’s attention is focused on her little babe in the beginning, but it’s really important that a new mother is taken care of as well! Her health must be made a priority as well so that she has the energy and clarity for her new role in motherhood. 

During pregnancy, your body is completely devoted to your baby, but taking the time to be mindful of your own nutrition once the baby arrives isn’t self-indulgent, it’s necessary.

You’re well aware that your new addition has robbed you of a full night’s sleep, but did you know that pregnancy and breastfeeding could also deplete your body’s nutrient stores? After pregnancy, you are more susceptible to anemia, osteopenia, fatigue, and depression. A practical and individualized nutrition plan can help you safely balance your body while replenishing your reserves so you can feel your best.

If you’re breastfeeding, what you eat can also directly affect the quality of your breast milk. Consuming a nutrient-dense diet will enrich your milk with the nutrients necessary to help your baby’s brain and body grow and develop.

I really love working with postpartum women! Being fully nourished is an essential component of a new mother’s health & happiness.
