A healthy pregnancy is a happy pregnancy. Being healthy does not only have great benefits for both mother and child during the pregnancy, but also long term and can even cross generations. The right nutrition during pregnancy is not only essential for baby’s physiological development, but can also partly shape future (cognitive) behaviours and susceptibility to diseases later in life. For you as a mum-to-be the right nutrition will help you to feel energized and happy throughout this special time and bounce back into vitality and shape after you have given birth.
During an initial counseling session (1 to 1½ hour) we’ll look at your current lifestyle, possible improvements and how to tackle possible barriers you may experience to change your (dietary) habits. We’ll discuss any questions you or your partner may have around nutrition during pregnancy. Because knowledge alone does not always translate into action and often comes with emotional hurdles, follow up consultations (45 minutes) are often beneficial to guide you through change and achieve your goals. You may like to book in a follow up consult on a casual basis or invest in the 12 week accountability & guidance program during which your well being goals are addressed in a step-by-step manner. During these 12 weeks we’ll meet fortnightly in person or through video call for a follow up consultation (45 minutes, 6 times). This motivates to stick to your behaviour change and gives the opportunity to discuss unexpected barriers that you’ll need a strategy for to prevent relapse. In the weeks between our in person/video meetings we will schedule “check-in” consultations over the phone (circa 15 minutes) to keep you on track.
Being understood and supported by your direct environment is key in achieving your goals. Therefor you’re always encouraged to bring your partner or support person to consultations.
