Health is the greatest gift you can give your child

My Story

During my first pregnancy, I desperately wanted to know how I could have a healthy and happy pregnancy. I wanted to know how I could make healthier choices to improve my baby’s development, feel my best during pregnancy, and look my best after my baby was born.

You see, my journey towards a healthy pregnancy started when I was diagnosed with the autoimmune disease, PCOS. I had struggled with cystic acne for years. I was bloated all the time and I had irregular periods. I hadn’t had a period in three years and doctors told me I’d never fall pregnant naturally. 

My Story

I desperately wanted to know how I could have a healthy and happy pregnancy

Determined to change this, I had to change my relationship with food. I had to “undo” a lot of unhealthy habits including an addiction to sugar and processed food.

I cut out processed food and “cleaned” up my diet. I started working out, focused on reducing stress, and embraced a more positive outlook.

I instantly saw the power of healthier choices. Most importantly, my periods returned, and I was able to conceive both my children naturally.

My Story

mindful eating helped me transition into motherhood feeling my best

After seeing the power of healthy choices in my life, I was surprised there wasn’t any evidence-based information that speaks to the modern mother. The information on websites was outdated. At the best of times, it was confusing.

I know from first-hand experience that there are many ups and downs to pregnancy (nausea, fatigue, and moodiness to name a few). But I believe mindful eating and movement helped me have the pregnancies and births I dreamed of. And I’ve seen the power of healthier choices help give women their best pregnancy experience.

I became so passionate about sharing what I’ve learned, that I pivoted from a career at the United Nations to become a Certified Health Coach, with a focus on pregnancy health and wellness.

I believe every woman deserves the right to experience her best pregnancy – and every woman deserves to be a healthier, happier mama after her baby is born.

Bella Mama Co. is dedicated to you, mama, and I’m excited to do this pregnancy journey with you.
