Congratulations on your pregnancy!
It’s one of the most exciting times in life. And - real talk - also one of the most chaotic. Somehow the excitement and overwhelm doesn’t change whether this is your first go around, or you’re a mom of many. Pregnancy is a time for harnessing courage and strength and being empowered - after all, you are literally creating life.
You probably have a lot of questions about what to eat, what to avoid and how to manage nausea or constipation. “Is fish good or bad?" Will the benefits of the omega-3s outweigh the risks of the mercury?” Or maybe you’re dealing with new restrictions or aversions, or appetite changes.
Girl, I’ve been there.
Stop Googling all your questions. If the onslaught of information has only served to erode your confidence, we should talk. If you’re looking for someone to help you find a happy healthy weight, make peace with your body and overall feel better, you’ve come to the right place. Together we will work on setting goals, skill-building, and problem solving for long-term success. We’ll work together to help you prioritize your own nutrition and activity goals so that you can get back to the rest of your life.
