Most women take for granted that with pregnancy comes morning sickness, swelling, bloating and food cravings and other related ills. And then, the dreaded painful childbirth is expected. It is a wonder anyone volunteers for the job!
One Texas mom has found the way to beat the baby birthing blues, and now she is spreading the good news! You can learn how to have a carefree, pain free pregnancy and childbirth. Sound too good to be true? Read on.
After her first child, Kristin Michaelis began researching natural health, diet and nutrition. Through her voracious reading on the subject, this Texas mom made an amazing discovery. If a woman properly nourishes herself with food, she can not only make childbirth pleasurable, but good nutrition will create a wonderfully healthy baby.
Kristin’s last two children were born with 100% pain free, natural childbirths. No drugs, no stress, no pain.
Today, Kristin in addition to being a wife, homeschooling mom, is author of Food Renegade, one of the top food blogs on the internet. As a successful realfoodmedia.com blogger, Kristin now coaches her readers on cooking, making the transition to a whole foods lifestyle. Kristin is developing training materials for moms and teens to help them learn more about nutrition and cooking.
Her journey into health and wellness began when a friend showed her a documentary film, The Future of Food, which exposed Kristin for the first time to the politics of food and the dangers of genetically modified food. Another friend told her about Nourishing Traditions cookbook, which she says, “blew me away.” Kristen began experimenting with the recipes and loved them. She then began teaching others about what she was learning.
Kristin is an avid researcher, and has what her husband calls a “near photographic” memory. A former copywriter, Kristin is taking her considerable skills into the natural health arena, and helping other women learn vital nutrition information that is not currently common knowledge.
Her latest endeavor is a Healthy Babies e-course. So far, over 200 people have enrolled in her 12 part series of lessons. The course covers the hazards of our industrial food system, and the importance of building your body with good nutrition well before you try to conceive. From breast feeding, all the way to babies first foods, Kristin is sharing her hard won wisdom on everything mothers need to know about producing a healthy, happy child.
Each lesson includes videos, downloadable text and articles and will take anywhere from 1-4 hours to complete. It is an entertaining, self paced course that you can fit into your schedule when you are able to do so, during kids nap time, late at night, or doctors office waiting room.
Kristin will help you get over the intimidation factor in making dietary changes. She takes you through one incremental change at a time, until you are confidently moving toward a healthier eating style. She firmly believes that many pregnancy maladies can be totally avoided if you eat a certain way for 6 months prior to conception, to build your nutrient stores.
For example, Kristin explained to me, “Women are not getting protein from good enough sources, like eggs, red meat. Eating sufficient protein can help avoid swelling and varicose veins so common in pregnancy today.”
If you want to have a smooth pregnancy and enjoyable childbirth, (not to mention a beautiful, healthy child), I highly recommend spending time with Kristen in her new e-course. Click here to sign up or for more details.
