By definition, to nourish means to provide with the food or other substances necessary for growth, health, and good condition.
As mothers, we often think of this term in relation to how we care and provide for our children. I find that doing the same for ourselves is of equal importance, especially during critical periods in life when how we care for ourselves can have a direct impact on the health of our children.
At Nourished Mothers you will find credible nutrition and lifestyle advice to help you nourish your own body as well as that of your baby’s, whether prior to conception, during your pregnancy, or after your delivery.
If you are breastfeeding, you will find support and coaching to overcome challenges and be successful as you provide your new baby with the best possible source of nourishment available to them.
As a dietitian, lactation consultant, and peer, I wish to share with you what I have learned from the research as well as through my own attempts at this whole motherhood thing. It’s not always perfect, contrary to how some women portray motherhood to be on social media, but you already knew that, didn’t you?
You will never find me promoting Fad Diets, or really any diet for that matter. I am what some might call a Non-Diet Dietitian. I preach INTUITIVE EATING. I preach REAL FOODS. I preach BALANCE. And I preach NOURISHMENT. This is the lifestyle you’ll live when you become a Nourished Mother.
From one Mother to another,
