Combat Lifestyle & Social Issues

Newborn Baby
  • Obesity

  • High Blood Pressure & High Cholesterol

  • Endometriosis & impaired fertility

  • Diabetes Type 2, Pre-diabetes & Gestational Diabetes

  • Socio-economic status and limited access to compassionate care

The maternal death rate is on the rise (especially in western nations like the US) and studies reveal that birthworker support, a healthy patient, and attentive postpartum care can help reduce the risk of death, premature babies and complications related to pregnancy. 

The prevelance of lifestyle disease among pregnant women is proportional to their internal and external stressors.  Women who are able to get control of and improve their health before delivery improve their chances of having a full-term baby, and a safe birth with minimal medical intervention.

As a trained Nutritional Doula, you'll not only be able to assist women in preparing their bodies for pregnancy and reduce physical and emotional stress, but you'll also be able to provide crucial postpartum support once they return home with their newborn. Your training will be crucial to mothers who may otherwise face life-threatening outcomes.
