I’ve been told that becoming a mom will change my life completely. Now I am living this change!
Motherhood comes with a great joy, a new love that grows every day but also with new responsibilities that at times might be overwhelming. While I find myself in doubt about certain baby-matters, I feel certain about my approach to nutrition. Nutrition has a huge influence on conceiving, pregnancy, new-borns and toddlers. Giving your baby a healthy start in life means giving your body optimum nutrition from the moment you decide to conceive, all through your pregnancy and lactation.
Realizing this, I was theoretically prepared for my own pregnancy and had the chance to test my own nutritional guidance on myself. Not only did I feel in great shape during the 9 months, but I was also able to give a completely natural birth and to be back to my old weight 3 month after delivery, without any diet and while still breastfeeding exclusively.
It is only natural that now I want to share this knowledge and experience with other moms-to-be and help them go smoothly through pregnancy, giving their babies an optimal start in life.
I already had the chance to make two public lectures on the subject and featured an article with nutritional advice and two recipes in the new issue of the Bulgarian magazine The Woman Today.
I will be happy to discuss pregnancy nutrition in personal consultations with future moms and their families and also plan to write more on this subject. It is only so important that more women realize that good nutrition means health and health is the first and best present that they can give to their future child! One that will stay with them for life!
