Nutrition for a healthy pregnancy

If you’re pregnant (or trying to get pregnant), this interview is absolutely necessary for you to hear.

I started working with pregnant and postpartum women in 2008. Lily Nichols shares rare pearls for having the best possible pregnancy in this interview.

Lily Nichols is a nutrition expert in prenatal health and diabetes. She passionately addresses these questions:

  1. What nutrients are critical, both before and during pregnancy

  2. How eating eggs will help your baby’s cognition and neurological development

  3. Why organ meats are good for you during pregnancy

  4. What foods can promote pre-eclampsia, premature delivery and other complications

  5. Why you need to eat fatty protein during pregnancy

  6. How you can healthfully address food cravings

  7.  Why too many carbohydrates aren’t helping your pregnancy, and how many carbs should you eat during each trimester

  8. What you should consider before getting pregnant

  9. One critical nutrient help regulate our genetics and where you can get it

  10. How to decrease common inflammation that can harm your baby

  11. How sleepiness can tell you about what you’re eating

  12.  The difference between Folic acid and Folate, and why this matters

This is an awesome, jam-packed interview. You’ll probably want to take notes, or plan to listen to it a couple of times (at least).

  • Oh how I miss being pregnant! I absolutely loved it and I feel it was because I was so VERY health conscious. Something about growing those babies brought out the health superhero in me! I was raised by a farm girl mama and much of what I grew up with and take for granted MOST people have never heard about. Thank you for this wonderful advice and for supporting mamas all over the Universe.
