In this episode, which we recorded as a live event in our free Facebook community, I sat down with Coach Dana (Planos dietitian and mom of 3) to explain how to prioritize yourself and your health as you go through the major life change of pregnancy! We discussed nutrition considerations and actionable tips for moms before, during, and after pregnancy, and addressed many common questions women have about food and their bodies while they’re pregnancy. Dana also covered body changes during pregnancy and mindset shifts to change how you view your post-pregnancy body.
