Why is nutrition so important?
Proper nutrition is essential for both mama and baby. After years of working as a birth doula I realized that despite the growing scientific research around nutritional needs in pregnancy, very few pregnant women receive nutritional support from their doctors. I believe that food is medicine, and our first defense in warding off complications and promoting a healthy journey.
HOW NUTRITION CONSULTING CAN HELP
With the support of a Certified Nutrition Consultant, it’s possible to reduce your chances of "morning" sickness (more appropriately: all day, any time nausea!), fatigue, constipation, heartburn, mood swings, pre-eclampsia, anemia, gestational diabetes, postpartum depression, and more.
Providing your body with the proper nutrition will help provide your baby with the best start possible. Nutrition consulting will empower you with the knowledge and confidence that you are doing the best for your baby and your body. These tools can be used for a lifetime of good health.

I grew up in a Jewish family where meals were a central part of our life and connection to one another.
I believe food is medicine and that a healthy relationship to food is more than just what is on our plates.
When I was eighteen years old I was diagnosed with an autoimmune condition that sent me on a path of self healing through nutrition and lifestyle changes. Over the past decade I have seen first hand how diet plays a role in my own well being in reducing allergies, skin conditions, balancing hormones, eliminating fatigue and so much more. My own positive pregnancy and postpartum experience were undoubted shaped by the way in which I nourished myself.
My approach is based on ancestral wisdom and currrent research. I am passionate about supporting women to create lasting habits that fit their individual needs.
