Making a decision to conceive a child can be the beginning of one of the hardest and yet most rewarding journeys in life. For some people the decision is taken away from them, for others conception happens straight away while for others it can take a long time. Whatever your situation, The Food Nutritionist can help you on your way to a healthy, happy pregnancy and beyond my programmes will give you the support and know-how to succeed. Start your journey by following a programme that’s right for you.
Before you even try to conceive it’s worth preparing your body to except this new life. There are so many nutrients needed at this time. The advice is to have at least three menstrual cycles before you try to conceive. Irregular periods and having been on the conceptive pill can affect conception success, so it’s a good idea for you and your partner to nourish and cleanse your bodies before trying to conceive. Whatever your situation, nutrition can help so please contact me to find out more.
If you are already pregnant, then congratulations! Remember that good nutrition and lifestyle play a big part in the development of your baby. You can get ahead by learning about the current research around vitamin B3, vitamin B6 and iodine and their role in the health of baby. Not forgetting amino acids and fatty acids, which are essential for he development of a baby’s brain. My programmes are fit for every step along the way so whether you’re at six weeks or six months contact me to find out about the different ways I can support you through this process.
Whatever way you decide to feed your baby there is a programme for you and your family. This can be both a very challenging and a rewarding time, In days gone by we would have had our mothers, aunties and neighbours to help but increasingly more and more parents are finding themselves alone. My programmes are designed to help ease you into this process, if you are local, advice can be given in the comfort of your own home or via Skype. This programme also offers breastfeeding support. As a knowledgeable mother of three boys, who were all breastfed, there’s nothing like someone with hands on experience to support you. Even if you decide to bottle feed the support will be there for you and your baby.
My pregnancy packages offer a wide range of services and support from preconception to birth and beyond. Please contact me to find out which package is right for you.
We also offer baby weaning classes.
