Starting a family is a very exciting time of life. Mom and baby’s health are very important prior to conception, during pregnancy and after your little ones arrival. Ensuring optimal health is the best way to ensure a healthy pregnancy and a healthy baby.
If you are already pregnant, it is never too late to take a look at your nutrition, and make some changes that can help make you and baby healthier.
Our Dietitians have worked with many client’s who have had infertility issues that were possibly related to nutrition. We specialize in gestational diabetes, PCOS, overweight and underweight issues relating to pregnancy. Susan (ALN owner) personally had gestational diabetes in both her two pregnancies, and successfully managed them without insulin.
Examples of some of the prenatal-postal areas that our nutrition experts educate on are:
Managing nutrition in the first trimester: nausea, vomiting and poor appetite
Nutrition through all 3 trimesters: vitamin and mineral recommendations
Fluid requirements throughout pregnancy
Managing healthy weight gain in pregnancy and weight loss after delivery
Managing food cravings and aversions.
