Take care of you and your baby

Is there a baby in your future? Then there is no more important time than now to give extra attention to diet and self care.

Your obstetrician, midwife, or reproductive specialist most likely have provided you with basic information about what to eat for a successful pregnancy, along with a prescription or recommendation for a prenatal vitamin.

Basic information can be useful, but to optimize your nutritional intake, there is more to know. One resource for learning more is: http://www.westonaprice.org/childrens-health/vitamins-for-fetal-development-conception-to-birth/. This is a scientifically-supported article that I recommend all future moms-to-be read.

Sometimes you need more help in understanding what dietary changes are really important during pregnancy and pre-conception. That is when you can benefit from making an appointment with me. I will walk you through where your diet can be improved, and equally as important, how you can implement those improvements. We will discuss your health history, recent labs and other tests, and even how you can reduce your risk for complications such as gestational diabetes.

Your baby’s and your health are the most important priority for you. As a mother myself, I know how that feels and want to help you on your journey to motherhood.
