Happy Mama Nutrition

Dr. Shawn Talbott (Ph.D., CNS, LDN, FACSM, FACN, FAIS) has gone from triathlon struggler to gut-brain guru! With a Ph.D. in Nutritional Biochemistry, he's on a mission to boost everyday human performance through the power of natural solutions and the gut-brain axis.

In our last “weekly webinar” for the Certified Mental Wellness Coach class, we had a good discussion about “what pregnant women should be eating” – both for them and for their developing babies.

We also discussed what moms should be eating AFTER delivery – to help them with their MOOD and help them get back to their “pre-pregnancy” selves (stress resilience, hormone balance, baby weight, etc).

Here is a little video that unpacks some of that and provides some specific supplement recommendations.

What should a pregnant woman eat – and how should she supplement – to maintain her mood, energy, and resilience during pregnancy and after?

~5-6 million pregnancies yearly

~1 million women suffer post-partum-depression (PPD) and post-partum-anxiety (PPA) yearly (this is how much is reported, so the true occurrence is actually higher)
