Healthy You, Healthy Baby: Preconception & Prenatal Series
Your health and habits effect your baby before you even conceive. Egg health is formed roughly 90 days before conception so the choices you make today do make a difference in your fertility. Once you are expecting, there are a whole new host of nutritional, mental, and physical decisions to be made to keep you and your baby as healthy as can be. Google has a lot of answers, but many conflict or aren’t from trustworthy sources which gets completely overwhelming!
I focus my Health Coaching for these women to bridge the gap between their 20 minute monthly doctor visit and what they do each and every day. Your doctor may tell you, “take it a bit easier with exercise”, and, “be sure to get enough protein”, but figuring out exactly what “take it easier” means to you specifically, or how much protein you need and how to fit it into your daily diet takes work!
Working one-on-one with clients is the majority of my business, but I wanted to reach more women who want this information, but may not be ready for one-on-one coaching. I teamed up with Kira of Comfy Fitness to create a 4 part series and am excited to kick off on September 16th!
Our goal is to cut through the overwhelm and give you holistic tactics in a practical manner filled with hands-on instruction and actionable tips to take home. Here is a breakdown of each session:
September 16th 1-2:30pm
Exercise for Fertility and Throughout Pregnancy
Your weight can affect your chances of conceiving, but how? Exercising while pregnant is recommended, but what kind? Learn what weight range and body fat percentage is ideal for conception with recommendations for how much is enough and how much is too much when it comes to your fertility.
Exercise is a crucial part of not only feeling great during pregnancy, but can help labor feel easier and be shorter, not to mention the positive effects on your baby. Discover exercises to avoid, and those to incorporate into your routine for each trimester, along with an in-session mini-workout!
September 23rd 1-2:30pm
Preconception and Prenatal Nutrition Basics
Learn the elements of a fertility diet along with types of foods that boost your fertility and how to easily incorporate them into your diet.
Google will overload you with opinions on what’s safe to eat and what’s not during pregnancy. This session will give you the facts in a straightforward manner, also going over how many extra calories you really need each trimester (spoiler alert: it’s not as many as you think).
Enjoy homemade No-Bake Lactation Balls (we swear they taste better than they sound!) and go home with the recipe and an easy Safe/Not Safe food guide.
October 7th 1-2:30pm
Stress and Mindest Management Techniques for Pregnancy
Isn’t it ironic that during one of the most stress inducing transitions in life, you’re constantly told by doctors how bad stress is? This session looks at how stress impacts your fertility and the health of both you and your baby, but more importantly we will cover practical stress management and mindset techniques.
Enjoy a rejuvenating mini prenatal yoga session led by a certified prenatal yoga instructor during class! Everyone will go home with poses, mantras, and a list of local recommended holistic practitioners to help keep stress in check.
October 14th 1-2:30pm
Essential Oils for Pregnancy
Essential oils can be a powerful natural remedy to many pregnancy symptoms, but it’s easy to be overwhelmed with which ones to use and how to use them.
Discover which oils are safe to use throughout pregnancy – as well as which to avoid – and many ways to use them from diffusers to roller balls. During this session we will all make an oil blend of your choice to take home and use!
You can sign up for individual sessions at $30, or whole series for $110.
