Welcome to the Peaceful Power Podcast today I chat with Alex Shepp on the pre/postpartum nutrition.

Introduction

I have known Alex for the past 4 years now. She is a dietitian at the gym I rent space at for my clients. Alex has such a wonderful approach to nutrition that I think you will find enjoyable, easy to follow and tips on pre/postpartum nutrition tips. She gives advice to parents on how to get dinner on the table every evening in a pinch, her pantry staples and how to approach your nutrition before, during & after pregnancy.
