A lifestyle guide including what to eat, meal plans, and recipes to nourish yourself from conception to postpartum and into motherhood

  Enroll in Course

In this course we will provide you with knowledge, recipes and tools to help you become aware of what your body (or cravings and symptoms!) might be telling you and how to properly nourish your body for a healthy pregnancy. We understand that every woman and pregnancy is unique and together our aim is for you to feel your best throughout YOUR pregnancy and into motherhood.

We cover every stage - from pre-pregnancy preparations, gut health, hormone balancing and getting your body and mind ready for conception to all trimesters, labour, postpartum and navigating back into your regular life.


How the Program Works

This program is adaptable depending on how long you have to prepare your body for pregnancy. We give guidelines for each stage you will go through prior to and during pregnancy. If you are already pregnant, this course is also for you! Start from where you are at and educate yourself on how to live your best pregnancy NOW! Here is some of what you can expect:

How To Get Pregnant

Have you already been trying to conceive? Are you following any plan to help with conception? We are here to help! We give you the tools to do a gentle and safe cleanse prior to conceiving, tips and foods specific to hormone balancing, exercising and other lifestyle techniques to prepare your body and womb.

This chapter is all about optimizing your nutrition for fertility and pre-conception. We explore:

  1. The foods and herbs recommended to improve ovulation and fertility
  2. Getting off oral contraceptives and alternatives
  3. Balancing your hormones to prepare for conception
  4. A pre-conception cleanse to prepare your womb for baby
  5. How to support your pregnancy once you’ve conceived

It All Starts In The Gut

Did you know that your baby not only gets your genes but your gut bacteria as well? And did you also know that most children develop food allergies from inadequate gut bacteria? According to Food Allergy and Education, 1 in 13 children have food allergies, or roughly two in every classroom and about 30 percent of children with food allergies are allergic to more than one food.

Get educated! Learn the common reasons why gut bacteria doesn't develop healthfully and how you can be sure you give your baby what it needs to mitigate this issue. Start healing your gut and strengthen healthy bacteria BEFORE you get pregnant with our easy to follow recommendations.


Pregnancy Week by Week - Including Recipes and Meal Plans for Each Trimester

Proper nourishment for each trimester of your pregnancy is essential for the proper development of your growing baby! Ever heard the term 'eating for two?' We are here to debunk this myth and give you real tools to support your higher nutrient needs for you and baby. Receive easy to follow and delicious recipes and meal plans that you can adapt to your needs and that cover all your nutrient requirements. We also give specific food recommendations to have at each stage of development, so you never have to worry about getting enough. We also know that each stage of pregnancy changes what your palate craves and your digestion can handle so we've tailored the program to provide you with recipes that will help your feel your best in each trimester. We include interviews with real moms who have been through it all and are here to share it all.

Our Certified Nutritional Practitioner and Registered Nurse, Spencer Driedger, built a meal plan just for Pure Joy members that will help you succeed in having the healthiest pregnancy and baby possible with the right nutrients when they are most needed!

SHOULD I EAT ONLY ORGANIC DURING THIS PROGRAM?
We are very passionate about eating organic foods not only for our health but the health of our children, husbands, best friends, and our community! Foods containing pesticides are very harmful to us and the environment. But it’s not always possible to find organic produce where you live or depending on the time of year, certain foods are not available organic. That's why we give you a list of the most important foods to buy organic.
DO THE MEAL PLANS INCLUDE SNACKS?
Absolutely! Though I have a feeling you'll be surprised at your lack of hungry when 'snack time' rolls around. Many people on this program find that they are satiated longer and eat less frequently. But we always factor in a snack or 'sweet treat' option in each meal plan.
ARE PRIVATE SESSIONS AVAILABLE IF I NEED EXTRA GUIDEANCE?
Absolutely! Our experienced team is here for extra support. You can book a session directly with us by emailing katelyn@purejoyacademy.com or choosing the private session package option when checking out.
