Whether you are just starting to think about getting pregnant, or actively trying to conceive, it’s time to think about your diet. The right diet can help you get pregnant and have the healthiest baby possible. It’s well documented that a mom’s diet has a direct impact on the health of her baby and there is a growing body of evidence that dad’s diet counts too.
Don’t wait until you are pregnant, think about preparing your body now. Did you know that you should be making changes to the way you eat at least three months before getting pregnant? It’s never too early to start planning.
An initial assessment is the first step in setting you up for optimal nutritional wellness for a healthy pregnancy. After the initial assessment we’ll discuss next steps for you.
If you have a lot of obstacles in your life that make it hard to eat well then we’ll work together until you feel you have the knowledge and skills to eat your best.
If you think you eat well but just want to check in with a professional, that’s okay too.
When you are trying to conceive, you want to eat a nutrient dense diet that:
- Promotes optimal hormonal balance
- Ensures adequate fats and protein for healthy hormone development.
- Provides you with ample dietary antioxidants
- Powers your reproductive system with the nutrients it needs for a healthy pregnancy such as folate, iron, B12, and calcium
Does this seem daunting to you? Don’t worry. It won’t be. We work together to tweak your diet to increase your fertility, and we talk about real food….like apples, crackers, rice, nuts….not science.
Each week we review your personalized plan, and make changes to it based on what works best for you. Each week you learn more about nutrition for a healthy pregnancy, and each week we practice the changes from the weeks before, and make a few new changes.
At the end of our time together, you will have changed the way you eat, and you will have all of the tools you need to eat an optimal diet that will balance your hormones, and support a healthy pregnancy.
Life gets hectic. If at any time you want to discontinue working with us, we will provide a full refund for the sessions you haven’t used.
