When I was thinking about getting pregnant, my doctor mumbled something about folic acid, gave me a prescription for generic prenatal vitamins and sent me on my way.
Is that really all there is to it? What about someone getting off birth control? What about preparing for the ups and downs of trying to conceive? And isn’t folic acid available in real food, not just a pill?
Considering how many babies are born each year, it’s incredible to me how little information we get about our fertility cycles, the health of our bodies, and how to best care for ourselves as mothers-to-be.
Here’s what I learned: it’s not rocket science. In fact, some of the best ways to understand your body and properly prepare yourself for pregnancy have been around for centuries. But we typically don’t learn about them in health class or from our doctor. Why is that?
Upon hearing I was pregnant, many of you exclaimed, “What a lucky baby to have such a healthy mom!” Aw, shucks. Well, wouldn’t you like to be just as healthy for your baby too? Whether you’re on your first pregnancy – or your third, or fourth, or fifth – this is the program for you.
In fact, all of the information inside applies to 1st trimester as well – so if you’re already pregnant, congratulations! Start now giving your baby exactly what s/he needs in these early days.
From previous clients:
It was quite evident that Michelle loves what she does as a health counselor by her non-stop enthusiasm and positive outlook. She truly cares about her clients and puts a lot thought and creativity, not to mention, effort in everything she does. I feel more confident in my food choices, and I am armed with a better understanding and useful tools to meet my health and life goals. Thank you Michelle for all that you do. You’re the Best! – J.P.
Working with Michelle has helped bring together many aspects of my life–food, exercise, work, relationships–and remind me how they all connect. I’ve learned some new tools for healthy living and had old ones reinforced. Slowly but surely I am integrating new healthy habits into my daily life. All with strong support and guidance! -S.G.
