Why Mamas Maternal Health?

Updated: Sep 29, 2019

How can Mamas Maternal Health help you?

We know how important this period of time is for both you and your baby. Instead of saying 'eating for two' we prefer the term 'nutrition for two.' This is because as your nourish your body, you are also nourishing your future child.

As beautiful as this time is, it can also become incredibly challenging. Mamas Maternal Health is here to help for this exact reason.

We are two registered dietitians and lactation counselors that are passionate about maternal nutrition and breastfeeding. With both of these credentials, we are uniquely able to counsel and guide mothers to meet their health and wellness goals during pregnancy and breastfeeding.

Dietitians have knowledge on how to implement a healthy and balanced diet through many life stages---including pregnancy and lactation. With our complementary background in lactation counseling--- we can help you meet your breastfeeding goals through latching, milk transfer, encouragement, etc. during this time.

Just as your body changes during pregnancy, so does your nutrient and calorie needs. Through one on one counseling, Mamas Maternal Health will help ensure you are meeting your prenatal/postnatal nutritional recommendations through a balanced lifestyle and diet. That being said, each future Mama has individualized needs--- these of which will be recognized in each session.

Similarly, breastfeeding is unique to each mother and baby pair in every way. Each pair will have to decide how long they breastfeed for and if they breastfeed exclusively or not. There will certainly be ups and downs during breastfeeding and as lactation counselors, we will be there to help prevent as many issues as we can while supporting your duration and exclusivity goals.

To find out what else Mamas Maternal Health can do for you and your baby, check out our website as well as our 'about us' page!

We would love to hear from you and help you through your pregnancy and breastfeeding journey!

Until next time!
