What you will walk away with
Most birth professionals have a solid base of understanding about prenatal nutrition. You have your recommendations and preferences on what you would ideally like clients to eat. However, the science and studies in this field are constantly changing. What was recommended 5 years ago is now outdated! Lily’s recommendation offer grounded information that keeps up with the changing times. You will walk away with:
- A deeper understanding of a nutrient-dense, real food diet for optional prenatal health (and how this differs from conventional prenatal nutrition guidelines).
- The role of mindful eating in making sustainable changes to eating habits.
- Counseling strategies to support clients through dietary changes, specifically how to talk to clients so they feel supported and motivated, rather than judged.
