What Expectant Moms are Saying:
Wealth of information
I have been looking forward to this class and was very happy to hear Jacqueline was coming back from maternity leave. As the class wasn’t available until the end of my second trimester, I bought a nutrition book early on in pregnancy and while it covered macro and micronutrients, Jacqueline’s personal knowledge highlighted so much more of what I wanted and needed to hear. I am thrilled with the wealth of information I walked away with.
An incredible amount of detail
An incredible amount of detail presented in an easy to process way. Was comforted to speak up about individual journeys where I normally wouldn’t have been open to talking about my own pregnancy journey.
I gained so much knowledge about prenatal nutrition, even with my third pregnancy! I especially feel that I benefitted from this class because I have not been taking the best supplements and vitamins and received great recommendations to help me through the rest of my pregnancy.
About the Class:
Nutrient–rich diets during pregnancy are shown to have many benefits, including improved fetal health, a decrease in pregnancy complications, and reduced postpartum depression.
We’ll share the best nutrient-dense, whole foods for pregnancy as well as which foods to avoid and why. You’ll learn about prenatal vitamins and what to look for when choosing a prenatal, as well as supplements, and when to consider them. We’ll even cover postpartum recommendations: nutrition, supplements and lifestyle, so you can plan ahead for a great postpartum experience. Last but not least, we’ll discuss how to avoid toxins in your environment, and how to know when buying “organic” actually matters.
This course is taught live and will be interactive – we encourage discussion and questions throughout!
