Good nutrition begins in the womb. How well a mother-to-be eats and how she cares for herself makes a big difference in the quality of the nutrition her baby receives. Recent research reveals that what a woman eats during pregnancy can affect the child's propensity to develop heart disease, diabetes, and cancer later in life. Good nutrition and self-care during pregnancy help prevent pregnancy problems for mother and child and can make this exciting time a more joyful experience for you! Nutritional therapy can be used to address and prevent morning sickness, anemia, and other nutritional deficiencies, heartburn, and gestational diabetes.            

Pregnancy Care for Vegetarians and Vegans

A vegetarian diet can be healthy and safe when you are pregnant and provide proper nutrition for you and your growing baby. However, vegetarians have to plan their diet more carefully to ensure that important nutrients, proteins, vitamins, and minerals are consumed in adequate amounts.                                                                            The same can be true for vegan moms-to-be, but meeting all the nutritional needs is a more serious challenge and can be difficult since both meat and dairy are eliminated from the vegan diet.We offer support for both vegetarian and vegan moms-to-be to ensure proper nutrient intake.
