During this information packed course, students will learn about the foods best suited for each trimester to support the developmental stages of the growing fetus. An overview of helpful supplements will also be addressed in addition to foods and environmental chemicals to avoid. Time will also be dedicated to nutritional solutions for conditions/problems that are somewhat common during pregnancy, i.e. fatigue, blood sugar balance, and constipation.

A healthy pregnancy sets the stage for the long term well-being of the baby and learning the right nutrition and lifestyle strategies will also make for a healthy and comfortable 40 weeks!
