Episode 99 | Navigating the Third Trimester

Episode 99 Third Trimester.jpg

On today’s episode, we are talking about our different experiences within our third trimesters of pregnancy and what this trimester taught us outside of the first two. We wanted to share some encouragement and a few pieces that we found helped us make it through these last months and weeks of pregnancy.

We wanted to get into both the nutrition side as well as the emotional side because both play such a huge role within pregnancy and your postpartum journey. We’re sharing why persistence is key, a few of the top nutrients to focus on in this final stretch, some different aspects of preparing emotional for baby.

It’s so interesting to see the different perspectives from person to person and even from baby to baby and we hope that today’s episode will serve to encourage you as you continue to grow and nourish your little one and prepare to meet your precious baby.

If you missed our previous episodes on first and second trimester, definitely take a listen!

Episode 98 | Real Food for Pregnancy with Lily Nichols, RDN, CDE

Episode 98 Lily.jpg

Today’s episode is all about pregnancy and who better to dig into the topic with than the expert herself, Lily Nichols, RD. Lily is the author of Real Food for Pregnancy and Real Food for Gestational Diabetes and is so beautifully bridging the gap between the conventional medicine and functional medicine approaches to prenatal nutrition and wellness and empowering pregnant mamas with her evidence-based knowledge.

On today’s episode, Lily shares how she’s married a real food approach to nutrition with her conventional nutrition training and how this has helped her to begin to shift the prenatal wellness paradigm for the better. She also dives into what inspired her to write her second book, Real Food for Pregnancy,  as well as the topics we all have questions about–how to deal with nausea, vomiting and food aversions; food fears, her take on food safety and all those “no-no” pregnancy foods; and a bit on her recommendations for blood sugar testing.

We could have talked to Lily for hours and hours–her knowledge of prenatal nutrition and wellness is expansive, we highly recommend you snag her latest book to hear it all! You can also connect with Lily on Instagram or her brand new website!
