La Doula Lori Bregman says when she prepares a client for pregnancy the first thing she will do is pull unhealthy things out of the diet. After detoxifying them she begins adding healthy things back in. A gardener always gets the soil as healthy and nourished as it can be before planting precious seeds and plants, the healthier the soil , the more healthy and vibrant those seed and plants will grow. Our bodies are like as well, the healthier our bodies are before pregnancy the better the environment is to maintain a healthy pregnancy as well as to support a flourishing child.
Something Lori has all of her clients drink pre pregnancy is my fertility smoothie. Not only does it taste AMAZING but also it does so many awesome things to enrich your body by getting it ready for pregnancy. Everyday millions old cells die and millions are new cells are born the anti oxidants and greens in this smoothie help feed the new cells that being birthed.
The added supplements are to support fertility. Knowing that it can be annoying and time consuming to take a ton of vitamins and supplements everyday. Lori’s simple smoothie, you throw it all together in a blender and you are good to go.
