Having completed the 6 week “Feed Your Pregnant Body” program, it taught me a variety of different things that I never knew or anticipated.
In general I am a healthy person, however this course taught me exactly what to eat to help my fetus grow healthily. It gave me key aspects of different foods to enjoy. Not just nutrition wise but it also taught me how to protect my baby from toxic exposures and managing my fatigue! Highly recommended course! Enjoyed every chapter! - Lana Daher, Dubai, UAE

I love that FYPB gives basic guidelines for a healthy pregnancy, but also dives into common pregnancy issues and how to address them via nutrition. There have been a few times that I’ve pulled up the workbook while experiencing an ailment (hello, heartburn) and was quickly able to address the issue.
For me personally, the information for supporting breastfeeding was a favorite. I struggled with low supply with my first child, but between FYPB and meeting early with my lactation consultant, I’m going into this newborn stage with confidence that I will have a successful breastfeeding relationship with my second child. I’ve already got a batch of the lactation cookies in my freezer ready to go! - Beth Martin, Seattle, WA
