Nutritional Counseling

A strong, healthy mother grows a strong, healthy baby! Good nutrition is vital during your pregnancy — and beyond — to ensure that you are absorbing the proper types and amounts of protein, vitamins and minerals.

You will learn how to develop and maintain healthy eating habits that will provide important iron-rich blood during pregnancy. First, your midwife will review your current nutritional habits and offer sound advice on simple (and tasty) ways to improve them.

You will discover the importance of eating protein- and iron-rich foods, vegetables, and ‘good’ carbohydrates (whole grains, fresh fruits and more) and the positive effects it will have on your growing baby. You also will receive information on vitamins and nutritional supplements.

We believe that balance and consistency is key, and will continue to monitor and refine your nutritional goals throughout your pregnancy.
