What is a Pregnancy Health Coach?

September 20, 2017

 A Pregnancy Health Coach is a certified professional who acts as a supportive mentor, equipping expectant mothers with the necessary information and tools that cultivate positive and appropriate health and lifestyle choices.

 

A Pregnancy Health Coach is your personal advocate for living a healthy, energized life during pregnancy and beyond.  Pregnancy is often a period of great motivation for change and transformation. A healthy pregnancy to ensure a healthy baby is always the ultimate goal. Pregnancy is a natural time to learn a healthy lifestyle that will continue to impact you and your family for generations. The Health Coach academy will accompany you on this journey. 

 

Are you ready to cultivate healthy lifestyle habits for a healthy pregnancy? 

 

By working with a Pregnancy Health Coach, you will discover the nutrition, activities and other lifestyle choices that best support you during gestation.  Making gradual changes during pregnancy empowers current and future health goals. The focus is on lifestyle goals and finding ways to help you organize your life around what is most important to you. Pregnancy is not the time for a diet, but it is the time for healthy eating and healthy living. 

 

  Once you are pregnant, almost everything regarding the baby's physical attributes has already been decided; from eye colour to how their toes will look.  You have very little influence once DNA has done its job. 

However, nutrition and adequate health promoting lifestyle is how a woman ensures a healthier pregnancy and thus, a healthier baby. 

 

With a Pregnancy Health Coach, you will explore the foods you and your family enjoy, try new ones, experience different recipes and discuss the link between what you eat and a healthy baby.  A big part of Pregnancy Health Coaching are  the aspects of life that nourish but that are not food.  You will be guided and encouraged to spend time on improving all aspects of your health, not just nutrition; through conversations that are entirely focused on your health goals and priorities. 

 

Imagine what your life would be like with optimal health!
