Supporting mother and child during pregnancy with functional nutrition
- 1 hr1 hour
- Virtual Consultation
As a mother to be, you are trying to do everything in your power to do what’s best for your baby. Most people do the bare minimum as it relates to nutrition like avoiding raw fish, caffeine, and alcohol. But what many people may not know, is you can go MUCH further. The earliest form of intervention possible is addressing the gut health of the mother. Functional nutrition can support the health of the microbiome and the brain-gut axis, that supports both mother and baby. When pregnant, your gut microbiome is extremely sensitive to changes in your environment and that can directly effect fetal development. If gut microbiota interference is not addressed, it can cause a higher risk for intestinal disorders for both mother and baby, lead to neuropsychiatric disorders, and can significantly lower the immune system. By tackling the health of the mothers gut, we can reduce systemic inflammation, decrease the stress and toxic load on the mother, balance hormones throughout pregnancy (including thyroid) and allow for full nourishment of the body of both mother and baby. Whether you are looking for nourishment through fertility, pregnancy, childbirth outcomes, postpartum, or lactation, Functional Nutrition is the missing piece of the puzzle you’ve been looking for.
