6-Week Course starting October 10th.
Optimal prenatal nutrition has as its main goals the building of a healthy baby and the nourishing of a healthy mother. It also provides a strong foundation for healthy nutrition for the whole family.
Eating for two: how and why does prenatal nutrition matter?
For many couples, a positive pregnancy test feels like a destination. It is, and it’s also the start of another journey, whose destination is the birth of your baby. And birth is the start of yet another journey! If you worked hard pre-conception to nourish your body with healthy, fertility-supporting foods, you have built a great tool kit to carry you forward. If you conceived your baby on the typical Western diet, you have all the more reason to introduce nutrient-dense foods at this time.
Here’s why nutrient-dense foods are important during pregnancy. If you’re like a lot of women, pregnancy may seem like an entitlement to eat whatever you like to your heart’s content. Our Western culture has a lot to say about pregnancy cravings and aversions, and often promotes the stereotype of indiscriminate indulgence during pregnancy. Of course, you should nourish yourself and your baby with joy and lightheartedness. And this program invites you to do so with nutrient-dense foods.
