Pregnancy Nutrition Tips

Last year when I took the Bradley Natural Childbirth Instructor training in Florida, I was already committed to this method due to our own personal experiences 9 and 5 years ago.  However, being in the room with Marjie and Jay Hathaway was pretty fun.  These two may well be the world’s biggest renegades for natural birth.

Yesterday I perused my handwritten notes to see if there was something I could share with you , and lo and behold there are a few pearls you might want to know.  Keep in mind these notes are hugely paraphrased but so worth seeing.

 

#1-In over 27 years and 13,000 babies, Dr. Bradley noted ZERO preeclampsia while consuming 100 grams of proteins, gaining all the weight you want on Dr. Brewer’s suggested lifestyle diet noting it’s not the quantity but the quality of food that matters.
#2-Salt (the pink stuff!) is greatest contribution to man….or, my new favorite Herbamare.
#3-This might be by far my favorite:  “Prevention is far better than any treatment alone”
#4- MD’s receive no training in nutrition
#5-Eliminate refined sugars from your diets.  Try raw honey!
#6-Dr. Tom Brewer’s take on nutrition:  “OB’s are taken in by the drug industry, Bradley parents have a point of view about lifestyle which results in a strong, healthy baby.  This lifestyle begins before conception and especially in last half pregnancy.  Prenatal care is what mom and families  do about their health maintenance every day between visits.”
Take a peek at my video with the above tips:
