About the event

Join Reproductive Health Doula Nicky Dawkins and Registered Dietitian Nutritionist Ashely Carter for an in-depth webinar on Nutrition for Pregnancy and Postpartum!

The mission of this online workshop is to provide both evidenced-based and experienced-based education and support for moms in the area of nutrition. This webinar will help you understand what food, drinks and herbs best for them through every stage of maternity, based on your diet and lifestyle preferences.

We seek to educate families how they can nourish their bodies with food that is accessible, affordable and culturally appropriate to improve overall health outcomes throughout their prenatal and postpartum journey.

This webinar will have a live Q&A portion, so please come ready with any questions you may have for the Nutritionist and the Doula!

THIS IS A SAFE SPACE TO SHARE AND LEARN ABOUT NUTRITION DURING PREGNANCY & POSTPARTUM NO MATTER YOUR DIET PREFERENCES. THIS IS A NO JUDGEMENT ZONE.

*This webinar will be a closed session and registration will be required for the privacy of our guests.
