 Nutrition & Fitness

Good nutrition, proper hydration, stress reduction, and as necessary, holistic supplementation, are the foundation of a healthy pregnancy.

The Midwives Model of Care promotes a healthy mother and baby through quality nutrition and wellness counseling

We encourage pregnant & nursing women to eat a whole-food, omnivorous diet and we endorse the teachings of Dr. Tom Brewer (The Brewer Diet) who taught that a diet, high in protein and containing an adequate caloric intake, provides the best foundation for a healthy pregnancy and reduces the risk of pre-eclampsia and other malnutrition-related complications.

Physical fitness during pregnancy...

helps prepare the mother for the rigors of labor and
birth,  reduces the aches & pains of pregnancy, enables her to manage daily stress, lifts & supports her self-esteem, and balances brain and metabolic chemistry. All of this means that expectant mothers who exercise regularly are better prepared, physically and emotionally for giving birth and for nuturing a child. They have less depression and fewer medical problems. They see themselves in a more positive light and view their maternal role in a more satisfying perspective.
