Pregnancy Diet Planning & Coaching

pregnant woman with healthy foods

Jill Gibson, MD, serves the Covington, LA area with coaching women on how to have a healthy pregnancy diet while giving the knowledge needed to stay happy and healthy as a baby grows. The importance of nutrition during pregnancy cannot be overstated. Even if you already eat a healthy diet, knowing how to provide your body with the building blocks it needs for optimum health for you and your baby can make birth and breastfeeding easier, too.

Hormonal Changes And Nutrition During Pregnancy

The hormonal changes women experience during pregnancy and fertility treatment can be challenging. Everyone has different needs, and you may not be aware of how food can affect not only your body but also your moods. If you’re suffering from morning sickness, Jill Gibson, MD, can help you develop a pregnancy diet that’s easy on your stomach while making sure you’re getting proper nutrition.

Building A Pregnancy Diet Plan

It’s important to nourish your body with whole foods all the time, but it’s especially vital during pregnancy.  If your diet is low in important nutrients, vitamins or minerals, pregnancy can deplete these nutrients, which can make a huge difference in the quality of your pregnancy and the well-being of your child. Eating foods that are optimal for your specific needs will support you in feeling good and keeping your baby healthy all the way through birth.

Whether you’re concerned about gaining too much weight or not enough, it’s essential to make sure you enjoy your food and feel relaxed about eating. Jill Gibson, MD, can also advise you on the best foods to eat postpartum to help you recover quickly and make sure you’re getting enough nutrients while breastfeeding.

Be sure to keep a list of approved medications in mind alongside your diet.
