Since Melissa first announced her pregnancy in fall 2012, we’ve received a ton of questions about how to keep both mom and baby healthy and happy during pregnancy, post-delivery, and while breastfeeding. Over the last year, we’ve been compiling information based on the latest research and our own personal experience–and today we’re happy to announce a trial run of a new virtual seminar geared towards women who are newly pregnant, hoping to become pregnant, or recently gave birth.
Healthy Momma, Happy Babies
This virtual (online) seminar will be 2 hours in length, and limited to just 10 participants. We’ll cover a broad range of topics, and leave lots of time for personal attention and Q&A. Melissa will be offering specific recommendations and practical application ideas on nutrition, exercise, sleep, and stress management during pregnancy and after giving birth.
Topics of discussion include:
- Pregnancy nutrition, and dealing with food cravings and aversions
- Pregnancy supplementation: the three supplements you really should be taking, and why
- Exercise during pregnancy: the five exercises all pregnancy women can (and should) do
- Natural birthing options: midwives, doulas, hypnobirthing, and water births
- Natural techniques for turning a breech baby
- Group-B strep testing
- The benefits of chiropractic care during pregnancy
- Sleep during pregnancy: getting comfortable, and dealing with fatigue
- Planning for baby: the three discussions you must have with your partner before the baby comes
- Breastfeeding nutrition
- Breastfeeding supplementation
- Lactation consultants: who, what, and why
- Feeding on demand vs. scheduling
- Exercise post-baby
- Leaking urine post-baby: that ain’t normal
- Losing weight post-baby: how much is safe?
- Dealing with sleep deprivation post-baby
- Friends and family visits
- Baby stuff: how much do you really need?
