Show Notes

In today's episode I chat with Nutritionist and Natropath Shelley McKenzie of Freedom Wellness.

I personally worked with Shelley during my pregnancy with River and she was a huge help for me to optimise my nutrition, prepare for birth and labor and boost my iron levels without a transfusion.

A woman's nutritional needs change during pregnancy and continue to change per trimester as baby grows. We are diving into the general nutritional needs of a women per trimester based on how baby is growing and how you can use food and supplements to insure you are getting everything you need to not only grow a healthy baby but keep you strong and vital as you head into the postpartum period.

This is an absolute must listen for all pregnant mumma's or those planning on becoming pregnant.

One huge aspect of a healthy pregnancy is movement and stress management. I highly recommend taking up a prenatal yoga practice to help manage stress and anxiety whilst moving in a way that's safe and supportive to a pregnant body.
