I help women struggling with hormonal issues use nutrition to transition off birth control and have healthier periods

Do you suffer from menstrual cramps, PMS, or irregular periods? Unfortunately, these menstrual cycle issues are common, but they're not normal. If you're currently on or have ever been on birth control, you could probably benefit from nutrition support to assist your body in healing. I look at the menstrual cycle as a vital sign from the body that can tell us if your hormones, metabolism, digestion, etc. are functioning properly. Implementing dietary and lifestyle changes can often help to alleviate many of these symptoms so you can experience healthy periods.
Nutrition has been shown to have a positive influence on improving and/or enhancing fertility, in both males and females, especially when done proactively in the months leading up to conception. Whether you're planning to conceive in the future, are currently trying to conceive, or have been experiencing issues becoming or staying pregnant, I can help. I have specialized fertility nutrition training that allows me to support your unique fertility journey through appropriate nutrition and/or supplemental interventions.
So many amazing things are happening within your body during pregnancy. You're literally growing a new life! All of these metabolic changes require extra energy, vitamins, and minerals from the food you eat. Since your nutrient needs are increased, this also increases the risk of potential nutrient deficiencies. The best way to monitor if you are meeting your nutrient requirements is to work with a Prenatal Dietitian like myself. Giving your body adequate nutrition during pregnancy will increase the likelihood of a healthy baby, positive delivery experience, and optimal recovery during the postpartum period.
Nutrition is just as important after pregnancy. Your energy needs may be increased if you're breastfeeding and your nutrient needs remain high so your body can heal from pregnancy and childbirth. A Dietitian can help with determining the best foods to eat for postpartum recovery, providing meal ideas that are easy to prepare during the busy postpartum phase, and explaining realistic weight loss expectations.
