Good nutrition is incredibly important during each stage of starting and raising a family – conception, pregnancy, post-partum and breastfeeding, and especially feeding your children and family for the long-run. Whether you are pregnant, hoping to be pregnant, or have just had a baby, my job is to help you make a fresh start at healthy eating during this wonderful time in your life.
I offer personalized nutrition therapy services to meet you and your family’s needs.
If you are having difficulty becoming pregnant, or a specific medical diagnosis of infertility is causing concern, a nutrition therapy program will help you to change your eating habits to promote pregnancy. Because many women don’t know if they are pregnant for several weeks after conception, embarking upon a nutrition program while you are “trying” will help provide baby with the nutrients that are essential during even the earliest phases of development.
Are you experiencing morning sickness, low energy, constipation or heartburn? Nutrition tips and diet modification can help you cope with these common problems so that your pregnancy is a more comfortable experience. Nutrition therapy can help you make dietary changes that will help you gain weight appropriately. Special concerns such as gestational diabetes, or pregnant with twins requires special attention to diet. Nutrition therapy helps mom and baby achieve a healthy delivery, and has lasting effects on health.
Do you have post-pregnancy pounds to lose? Feeling low energy? Experiencing difficulty with breastfeeding? Pregnancy, childbirth, and nursing take a lot of nutrients from the mother. Proper nutrition can help replenish vitality and prepare the mother for future pregnancies. Nutrition therapy will help you to follow an eating pattern that is nutrient dense to help you feel your very best again soon.
Are you wondering how to introduce your baby to his or her first foods? Are you feeling like making your own baby food is too intimidating? Do you have a child with special dietary concerns or allergies? Properly nourishing babies, toddlers and growing children is one of the most crucial steps in raising a healthy family. The food-related decisions you make now can help to establish healthy eating patterns and influence long-term health for you and your children.
