Don’t be fooled by the name. “Nutritionist” is not a professional title. Only a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist (RDN) meets rigorous academic requirements with clinical training, holding a degree from an accredited university. Our RDNs stay informed of guidelines set by the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics to provide our patients with expert nutrition counseling for their fertility, pregnancy, and postpartum health.
Optimal nutrition during pregnancy (even preconception) is the most influencing, non-genetic, factor in maternal health and your baby’s development (including a child’s growth, cognitive development, and long-term risk of developing chronic diseases).
Even before the pandemic, we met with clients virtually. We use a HIPAA-compliant telehealth platform to ensure the utmost confidentiality. By attending to patients virtually, we can work around your unique schedule and needs, and time-zone.

Oils, fats, protein, dairy, Omega-3 fatty acids, folic acid, vegetables and fruits, vitamins B, C and D and more are all parts of a healthy diet, particularly while pregnant. Each trimester has different nutrient requirements. Your RDN will evaluate your current diet and eating behaviors to determine the best foods for you and your baby. Each diet plan is individualized, depending on your unique needs.
Absolutely. We wouldn’t do it any other way. Every body is unique. We work with women from all walks of life, honoring their food traditions and individual needs. Developing individualized diet plans to include necessary nutrients, supplement protocol, and more is what we do best!
No, though you do need extra calories – depending on which trimester you’re in as well as during breastfeeding. We’ll address your unique calorie and nutrient needs during our sessions.
It’s important to maintain a healthy weight. There is no one-number-for-all. It depends on your weight and health level pre-pregnancy. Now is not the time to diet, instead the time to develop a healthy diet plan and establish healthy eating behaviors to take you through your maternity and postpartum healing.
