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:
- The foods and herbs recommended to improve ovulation and fertility

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, or roughly two in every classroom, have food allergies 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 they need 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

Receive easy to follow, 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 at each stage of development, so you never have to worry about whether you're getting enough.

We include interviews with real moms who have been through it all and are here to share.
