Whether you are trying to conceive or are already pregnant, a whole-food, plant-based is the healthiest way of eating for you and your baby. You can help prevent common diseases that occur during pregnancy that can be associated to improper nutrition such as gestational diabetes, high blood pressure, preeclampsia, anemia and hyperemesis gravidarum. By maintaining a healthy body weight before becoming pregnant and through pregnancy, you can also decrease the risks of needing an emergency cesarean section.
You can also prevent neural tube malformations, heart disease, obesity, diabetes mellitus (type 1 and 2) and some forms of congenital cancers in your baby by adopting a well-planned, plant-based diet. With my experience in gynecology and obstetrics in my general practice as well as plant-based medicine and nutrition, I can guide you through telemedicine consultations and provide you with personalized meal plans for every stage of your pregnancy to make sure that you and your baby get the proper nutrients, vitamins and minerals that you both require, help prepare for life after giving birth as well, educating you about breastfeeding and whether of not it is right for you and your family. I can also provide you with advice on how to exercise during pregnancy and whole to control the usual stress and anxiety of expecting a bundle of joy.
