First comes baby…but now what? Embracing motherhood is an exciting time, but it can be just as frightening. In order to optimize the health of you and your new baby, it’s important to know how to include good sources of energy, vitamins, and important nutrients, especially during the few weeks after birth. With my experience as a postpartum dietitian, I’ll create a customized, science-based nutrition and lifestyle plan designed to nourish your body, mind, and baby as you embark on your incredible new journey!
Breast milk is the gold standard of nutrition for your baby, containing vital antibodies that help your baby fight off viruses and bacteria, and lower the risk of asthma and allergies. As an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC), I can help you maximize your breast milk’s amazing baby-boosting power through a highly effective, science-based nutrition plan.
75% of women struggle with post-pregnancy weight – and if you’re like most new moms, you’re eager to put away the maternity clothes and slip into your old jeans. I’ll fully support you through your journey with evidence-based nutrition strategies and realistic goals to help you lose even the most stubborn weight so you can reclaim your body and take on parenthood as your best you!
Nutrients are naturally passed on from mommy to baby throughout pregnancy and during breastfeeding, and even mothers who choose not to breastfeed will require a nutrient-filled body boost while recovering from childbirth. Especially for women who plan to have more children, repleting nutrient stores is crucial to ensure optimal pregnancy outcomes.
