Calling all mums 2B! We’re excited to announce the arrival of 2B Pregnant!
Now you’ll have the tools you need to help you eat delicious, satisfying food, with a positive mindset and the confidence that you’re doing the very best for your health and your growing baby.
What Is 2B Pregnant?
Registered Dietitian Ilana Muhlstein, M.S., R.D.N., created 2B Pregnant to help you navigate the challenges of eating during pregnancy while creating a lifetime of healthy habits for you and your family.
Even if you already follow a healthy eating plan, a positive pregnancy test can throw your good intentions out of the window. After all, you’re eating for two, right?
In reality, “eating for two” doesn’t give you a free pass to indulge all your cravings or eat crazy amounts of food. But emotions are high and the cravings are real, so now more than ever you need great nutrition support.
Ilana designed 2B Pregnant to help you thrive during your pregnancy and after the baby arrives.
You’ll focus on all the delicious food you CAN have while helping optimise your nutrition for each trimester to support your baby’s growth and development.
Ilana will share her most effective strategies for overcoming obstacles like cravings, emotional eating, managing weight gain, nausea, indigestion, constipation, and exhaustion.
And she’ll help you reframe your mindset so you can stay positive throughout your pregnancy.
Why Do I Need 2B Pregnant?
2B Pregnant is designed to help expectant mums eat well for a healthier, happier pregnancy.
Trimester-specific nutrition suggestions will support you through all stages of your pregnancy.
