Disclosure: This is a sponsored post but as always my post is my unbiased opinions.
I am a Mami of two beautiful boys but pregnancy was never easy for me. I do not mean just the all-day 9 month nausea or the two dehydrated induced hospital stays when I was finally pregnant but all the pregnancy disappointments before the birth of my two sons.
Eddy and I started trying to get pregnant at 25 and you would think it would be so easy for two 25 year olds to make a baby right?
Not really because there are just SO MANY factors when a woman is trying to get pregnant like are you getting all the nutrients your body needs, are you at a good pre-pregnancy weight, your environment and as simple as do you know when you are ovulating.
The terrifying part in the process is not knowing what is going on and doubting yourself and your partner the whole way.
Last week I attended an event by PregPreg in the beautiful Exhale Spa at the Gansevoort Hotel where I heard from Latham Thomas (Author and Founder of Mama Glow); Keri Glassman (Author and President of Nutritious Life); Kevin Jovanovic, MD; Lara Oboler, MD (Founder of PregPrep); and Robert McDonald (Director of Healing at Exhale Spa) on some of the biggest pregnancy misconceptions and lessons learned.
Check out my video of the panel of experts sharing their best advice on getting your body ready for pregnancy.
- De-stress your environment and life
- Cut nitrates and artificial coloring and flavors from your diet
- Yoga is a great way to keep in shape, distress and get your body ready for delivery
- Start taking prenatal vitamins the minute you start trying to give body extra boost of nutrients and vitamins
I WISH I knew more before all those stressful months!
I was so moved by Lara Oboler’s personal stories of pregnancy disappointments and victories. This motivated her to create a better option for women trying to conceive and PregPrep was born. PregPrep is a comprehensive program is based on three key medical principles that promote optimal reproductive health and conception: thinning of cervical mucus, elimination of free radicals, and proper nutrition to support ovulation, conception and overall reproductive health. Every ingredient in our products works to provide one or more of these important benefits. For more details on the product head over to www.pregprep.com.
