Most women experience similar challenges on their journey into motherhood: They feel an intense pressure to get pregnant easily, be a good mom, “bounce back” as soon as baby’s born, and often feel alone in their struggle.
Yes, it’s hard work, but it doesn’t have to be isolating too.
Lying awake at night worrying if you’re doing everything you can to create a safe and nourishing space for your baby to grow. You don’t have to feel so alone.
Struggling with symptoms that no one warned you about, wondering why it has to be this hard for you when your friends had seemingly easy pregnancies. You deserve answers.
Feeling totally overwhelmed with a new baby, breastfeeding, and regaining your energy postpartum; Wishing for your old body and life to come back. You can feel good again.
I’ll never give you a recommendation that isn’t backed by science and tailored to fit your needs because this process requires more than the latest woo woo diet trending on Instagram.
It’s not about patch jobs or forcing a square peg into a round hole, but understanding that different things work for different people. I don’t follow diet dogma or trends, but search for context in the bigger picture to create harmony in your body and optimize your health.
Together, we analyze your current lifestyle and seek out small, actionable changes to your nutrition that you can make today. Tiny habits that when stacked, shift your overall well being for the better—for you and your baby.
Because you don't need to sacrifice who you are to succeed.
"Janine is a dream to work with. She has a gentle and compassionate manner and asks great questions in a thoughtful and non-judgmental way. She pushes me to make meaningful changes incrementally without overwhelming me. She also knows her stuff - plain and simple! I'm FINALLY beginning to look and feel like myself again! I've lost close to 40 lbs. I feel proud of all the changes I've made and I am eternally grateful to Janine for that."
Preconception to postpartum—regardless of where you’re at in the journey, I offer personalized 1:1 support. Here’s what that could look like for you…
My experience working with Janine is nothing short of amazing. Janine is a real person, which is hard to find in this industry and with medical professionals. She has a gentle approach that makes you feel like you have someone guiding and supporting you through the process and helps you find ways to adapt the changes she is suggesting.
You want to be the healthiest version of yourself prior to getting pregnant… and maybe your definition of healthy has shifted recently too. Rather than being the most fit on the outside, you see that it’s a different kind of work to nourish your mind and body as you prepare for growing a baby.
This next step can feel all kinds of scary, overwhelming, and uncertain, especially if you cope with health conditions like PCOS or irregular cycles. It’s my job to guide you through.
You can quit Googling. I’ll meet you where you’re at, but preferably we get started at least 3-6 months prior to your desired conception.
When my husband and I were ready to conceive, we were able to do so immediately. I am confident that this occurred due to working with Janine for a year and following her advice. From food, clean products, and fitness, I was able to turn around my health and she always kept me on track. Janine has helped me through conceiving, being pregnant, and I am confident and excited for my postpartum health journey when the time comes!
Our priority at this stage: Ensure that you are meeting the changing nutritional demands of the first, second, and third trimesters, as well as labor and delivery when it’s time. Sometimes additional challenges like gestational diabetes may come up, but we work through it together.
In pregnancy and birth, your body supports exponential growth then is further tested through the marathon of labor. It’s normal if you don’t always feel your best, but we can manage many of the related symptoms through changes in nutrition, supplements, and lifestyle.
Remember: It’s okay if your journey looks different than your friends. Lean on me to get the answers and remedies you need.
Pregnancy was hard, postpartum was harder. I needed to take care of myself and for the first time in my life it wasn't about the scale or newest diet trend. After gaining 50lbs in pregnancy I needed some guidance and support and I'm forever thankful I found Janine!
The juggle is real. If you’re having a hard time taking care of yourself in addition to your baby… this is for you. You may be emerging from that blissful (but exhausting) newborn haze, or you may be 6 or 12 months down the line, but you’re ready for more energy, balance, and pants that zip. It’s okay if you look or feel different, you are forever changed, you are a mother. My goal is to help you feel confident as the new you, so you can show up as your best self for your family, career, and most of all, for yourself.
Together, we’ll create an action plan of small changes so you can consistently develop habits that help you juggle it all. As an added bonus, as the matriarch of the family, your positive choices filter down from you, so not only will you nourish yourself, but you’ll lay the groundwork for positive changes in your whole family.
Pregnancy, delivery, and nursing are incredibly taxing on even the most robust body. An individualized dietary and supplement plan that helps you save time and energy instead of adding to your stress and responsibilities, can make all the difference in feeling like yourself again. And because you just might be crazy enough to do it all over again, we need to take advantage of this time to really replenish and restore your body with a solid nutrition plan.
