The Nurtured Mama:
Pregnancy nutrition Online group course
Nourish your Body and your baby’s during pregnancy.
Nutrition during pregnancy should feel simple. Not complicated. Not frustrating.
- Worried about what foods you can and can’t eat.
- Confused about which supplements you need to take.
- Exhausted and stressed out trying to plan your meals and snacks accordingly.
- Confused and overwhelmed with what pregnancy nutrition advice is actually best for you and your baby
Then you’re in the right place.
As a mom of two, I know first-hand how it feels to want to do everything right, while simultaneously being afraid to do everything wrong. I feel you mama!
When it comes to your diet and pregnancy nutrition, you should:
✔️ Feel confident with your food choices,
✔️ Still enjoy the foods you love,
✔️ Feel energized throughout your pregnancy.
… all while nourishing your body in the best way possible for both you and your baby!
As a prenatal dietitian and fellow mama, I’m here to help.
Trying to conceive or currently expecting?
Maybe you’re a first-time mom feeling overwhelmed after Googling pregnancy diet plans and finding conflicting information about nutrition.
Or, maybe it’s been a while since your last pregnancy, and you’re confused about current recommendations.
Or, you might be struggling with pregnancy symptoms, and having a hard time figuring out how to get through the day plus get the nutrients you and your baby need.
Pregnancy can create a lot of change and uncertainty. But you shouldn’t have to feel unsure about what to eat.
You shouldn’t have to worry about every bite of food.
Or be fearful that you’re eating or drinking the wrong thing. Or stress about whether you’re getting in the right nutrients for building a healthy baby.

Each and every mama (and baby!) can benefit from individualized nutrition advice.
You’re here because you want answers.
Because you’ve already read the generic advice that you can find on a pamphlet or in a blog post.
There’s an abundance of pregnancy and infant nutrition information out there. But, you’ve got questions that the generic info can’t answer.
Am I eating/supplementing enough iron to make sure my baby has all the nutrition they need to develop during pregnancy?
How exactly do I alter my diet to make sure my body is properly nourished while we try to conceive?
Are there things in my diet that I’m eating or drinking that I shouldn’t be?
Is my infant getting enough nutrition and growing as expected?
A prenatal dietitian can help you navigate these questions and more.
And you don’t want to get these answers from just anyone. You want to get them from a credible source – from someone you trust.
Getting clear, science-based, and individualized nutrition advice from a Registered Dietitian can provide you the clarity and relief you’re looking for.
And it’s much more convenient to get your specific questions answered from an expert, rather than spending hours sifting through all the conflicting information on Google.
Individualized Coaching with a Registered Dietitian
Whether it’s to ensure you’re both meeting your nutrient needs or to receive support with a specific health concern, a dietitian can give you the best answers.
Individualized counselling is especially recommended for you if…
- You’re worried you’re not getting enough nutrition during pregnancy
- You have food allergies, intolerances, or dietary restrictions (vegetarian, vegan, etc.).
- You want a very specific, individualized approach to optimizing your prenatal nutrition
- You struggle to eat enough while experiencing pregnancy symptoms
- You have a specific health concern (such as Type 2 or gestational diabetes, IBD, etc.)
- You have a history of disordered eating
- You’re looking for nutrition support to heal your body postpartum
- You have a history of, or are currently experiencing a vitamin or mineral deficiency
- You’re worried your baby isn’t growing as expected
- Your baby has a Cow’s Milk Protein Allergy (CMPA)
- Your baby has food allergies (or is at high risk of developing them) or Food Protein-Induced Enterocolitis Syndrome (FPIES)
- You’re concerned that your baby has a vitamin or mineral deficiency
No two experiences are the same; and nutritional needs will differ between each mama and baby. But, there’s no need to try to figure it all out on your own.
