Nutrition & Wellness

A healthy diet during pregnancy is vitally important. Balanced nutritional health nourishes both mother and baby and facilitates proper fetal development. Nutritionists offer guidance regarding appropriate food choices for general pregnancy needs, as well as special medical considerations such as gestational diabetes. They can also offer advice about post part recovery. Especially when it comes to children, the choices we make about the products we use are very important. Here are some local resources.

Laura Denman, MS, RD, CPH, HHC

Life and Wellness Coach

My coaching practice has evolved into one that focuses heavily on self-love and self-care, with a dash of nutrition thrown in and a sprinkle of broad-based spirituality. My mission is to help men and women actually LOVE their lives and to find joy as opposed to feeling as though they are living the movie Groundhog Day.

Pure Haven

My mission is to enable families to live the healthiest lifestyle possible. Did you know that there are over 1,300 chemicals banned in Europe but only 11 in the US? I can teach you how to read labels and look for toxic chemicals in everyday products while providing a safe alternative. I began my non-toxic journey when I was pregnant with my first born over three years ago. Many people know to steer clear of eating raw fish and soft cheeses, but many don’t know chemicals in every day products may be putting babies at risk. Now a family of five, I’m sharing the message and helping other families begin their non-toxic journey too.
