Do you need a pregnancy nutritionist? In today’s day and age a woman is usually not guided in the most important moments of her life: her prenatal months. So nutritionist Mikayla Curti is here for you.
While you’re pregnant, your body has very unique nutritional needs. A pregnancy nutritionist can help you meet those needs. In my nutritionist practice, I work with many expecting mothers - it’s one of my specialties. Even if I won’t be able to predict whether the pregnancy will turn out successfully, with my expert guidance, you can be sure you will have all the tools necessary to have as nutritionally healthy 9 months as possible.
You can set up a pregnancy nutritionist appointment at your convenience by contacting me at Mikayla@raisinhealthinternational.com. We can set up an in office appointment if you live close to my Jupiter/Palm Beach Gardens office or, if not, I’m happy to work with you via Skype.
Prior to my setting up an individual pregnancy nutrition plan, I will require a comprehensive health check-up which may include:
● Medical and family case history,
● Anthropometrical measurements,
If we need further testing, I will let you know. After I collect all the data from your testing and history, we will begin working on your actual pregnancy nutrition needs, your customized weight gain needs and your eating plan. As a pregnancy nutritionist, I take your unique individual condition under huge consideration and I can help you provide your growing baby with the optimal nutrition he or she needs. Good pregnancy nutrition and outcome is one of the best gifts you can give your baby. Have a specific pregnancy nutrition plan and knowing exactly how you need to proceed in the 9 months prior is vitally important to you and your baby.
Protein is a major component of pregnancy nutrition. Most women need several ounces of protein daily for a healthy pregnancy. As a pregnancy nutritionist, I will help you decode what you need and to convert that into healthy, effective meal planning. Research has shown that eating adequate protein during pregnancy creates fewer complications such as preeclampsia. Some women report that during pregnancy they have reduced morning sickness symptoms when they consume proper amounts protein.
Getting adequate fat is often the biggest hurdle for pregnancy nutrition. Consuming enough fats helps your baby’s organ and brain development. Women should focus on healthy sources of fat like meat, butter, olive oil, coconut oil, eggs, and nuts. Gaining the right amount of weight helps ensure that all is done to prevent prematurity, and my approach is anything but “one size fits all”. I take the time to individually study the correct amount of weight that each of my clients should gain and keep on during a pregnancy.
I know many factors can cause complications during a pregnancy which are unrelated to pregnancy nutrition, however, preventing your body from the few causes of nutrition-related pregnancy problems is my goal. As your personal pregnancy nutritionist, I will recommend that you eat lots of fruits and vegetables. They have a variety of vitamins and minerals as well as fiber. These are all needed, especially during pregnancy. Eating a varied diet with lots of green, leafy vegetables helps the pool of Folic acid, which is so important for a healthy baby.
Proper water intake is also an important component of the pregnancy diet. A woman’s body has to supply fluids to replenish the amniotic fluid the baby resides in. By drinking at least a gallon of water a day, you can nourish your organs and the baby and prevent constipation.
With me as your pregnancy nutritionist, I will also ask you to stay away from caffeine in any form, soda, processed foods, processed vegetable oils, and unhealthy fats. We will make sure you consume adequate calories, but remember – you are not eating for two. I will also walk you through supplementation and tailor your pregnancy diet towards your personal needs. Contact me today to set up a consultation. I look forward to become your pregnancy nutritionist of choice. (put contact information here)
