supplements for pregnancy & motherhood

Just like our food, quality matters! These are my trusted recommendations for supplements formulated specifically to support a woman’s nutritional needs during pregnancy and replenish her stores after having a baby.

My nutrition guides can help you properly determine which supplements are best suited for your unique needs. Please refer to In The Glow during pregnancy and Hello, Motherhood for postpartum.
