During my first pregnancy, I wanted to know how I could take care of myself as I took care of my growing baby.
I wanted to step into motherhood feeling strong. I wanted to know how I could avoid postnatal depletion. I wanted to know how I could prepare for a better birth experience.
After seeing the power of taking care of my holistic health before I was pregnant, I was surprised there wasn’t any evidence-based advice on holistic pregnancy health that spoke to the modern mother.
The information I found on apps and blogs was very limited. Sometimes it was outdated. At other times, it was confusing.
There’s so much more to pregnancy health than what we’re told by our doctors or what we read on pregnancy apps.
I learnt that for women to step into motherhood feeling strong, healthy and confident, we need to take care of them during pregnancy. We need to make sure women get what their bodies – and their babies – need most during pregnancy, in the lead up to birth, and during the postpartum period.
I've seen the power of healthier choices help women step into motherhood feeling their best.
I know from first-hand experience that there are many ups and downs to pregnancy. Nausea, fatigue, and moodiness to name just 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 women step into motherhood feeling their best.
I became so passionate about sharing what I’ve learned, that I pivoted from a career at the United Nations to become a Certified Holistic 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.
