Soothing Smoothie for the Mom-to-be

Nourishment during pregnancy is obviously what your, and your baby’s body, needs to grow and thrive. Postpartum nourishment is also so important, as our body is trying to heal, produce milk, balance hormones, and function through “mommy brain” episodes. The struggle is real!

This soothing smoothie is wonderful during pregnancy because it’s easy to digest, it is full of electrolytes to prevent dehydration during morning sickness, and it’s full of protein and healthy fats to nourish your and baby’s brain.

Stay tuned for our upcoming Guide to Nourishing Your Brain and Body After Childbirth. Often, as new mothers, we put ourselves aside to care for our growing baby. And, righfully so!  I am here to remind and inspire you to care for yourself, because you cannot fully care for someone else if you are not healthy.

Here’s to motherhood!
