Not sure how you can plan for a successful postpartum?

Maybe you’re pregnant with your first child and unsure how you can plan for a successful postpartum period. Perhaps you are in that phase now with a newborn and feel like it’s not quite what you were expecting. I offer some simple tips and extra resources whether you are still pregnant or newly postpartum. This FREE PDF can be a great guide to get started. It is my goal to educate women as much as possible so they can tailor their expectations and create a more positive postpartum experience for themselves and their family.

what is nourishing mothers?

Nourishing Mothers is a platform where I will be sharing useful information via blog articles and social media posts on different aspects of nutrition and health related to women in the perinatal stages of their lives. I am hoping to inspire, lift up, and support mothers and mothers-to-be with simple, nutritional and wellness information.

Nourishing Mother’s website will eventually evolve to include free information products, and nutritional service packages (once I am a certified Holistic Nutritionist).

While I am studying, it will serve as a place where I can share new and relevant information (related to Nutrition, Yoga, and overall well-being) while staying connected with this beautiful community of Mamas.

i need some one-on-one attention now.

If you need more specified nutritional support right now, a few Nutritionists or Naturopahs I follow and feel confident sending others to for advice or consulting: Jillian Murphy (for Children and Women), Sweet Simple Nutrition, Erin Holt Health (for women), Meghan Garcia (for baby).


Is Lia a certified Nutritionist?

Lia is currently studying to complete her Diploma from a CANNP, IONC, NANP accredited Canadian school in Holistic Nutrition. Once she has graduated, she will be offering one-on-one consultations and more information products as a certified Holistic Nutritionist.

When will Lia be offering one-on-one consultations?

When she is a certified Holistic Nutritionist in late 2020 or early 2021. She will be specializing in Nutrition during Preconception, Prenatally, Postpartum and for Infants. Until then, she will be sharing loads of beneficial information and building a community. Stay tuned for the exciting evolution of Nourishing Mothers!
