Mamas, your body does not need to be fixed

This morning, I am trying my best to summarize all that I know about nutrition and pregnancy to present at tonight's Doula Association of Edmonton. Trying to sum up YEARS of knowledge into one hour is way harder than I thought...and for so many reasons.

When I first started my practice at the Lucina Centre here in #yeg, woman would seek me out for nutritional counselling during pregnancy. In a 90 minute session, I would totally bombard them with SO much information about nutritional requirements, charts, supplementation recommendations, prepping the body for birth.... these mamas would walk out of my office totally shell shocked, haha. It felt like they had to undue years of nutrition belief systems, and suddenly become Angela Liddon (@ohsheglows) overnight LOL. Needless to say, many of these clients I did not see again, or else they just hired me to do meal prep for them....
