Hi, I'm Joanna from Nannini Nutrition.
I specialise in supporting you through your pregnancy and beyond.
As a mum-to-be, you have a lot on your mind and thinking about healthy nutrition that supports you and your baby is something I can give you confidence with!
This might look like:
- Food approaches that work with you as your energy levels change each trimester
- Handling challenges such as gestational diabetes and low iron
- What else will help you and your baby's development (e.g. folic acid supplementation can be just the beginning!)
We can help you adapt to your body changes and knowing that you're giving your baby the best start to a healthy life, which is all we really want for our little ones!
Once your baby arrives, you may start to think about weaning your child and handling a different family set-up around meals and diet.
As a mother of a 17-month-old, I am in the depths of sleep deprivation as I write this! This plays havoc with your thoughts around food and it's all too easy to reach for comfort snacks and drinks.
Instead, we can set you up for success with practical steps and support so that you can get on with being a parent and nurturing your baby.
Why work with me?
Do you notice how, during pregnancy, a lot of your thoughts centre around giving birth? This is natural, of course, but as a mum myself, I also wish I had spent a bit more time preparing to be a parent!
Nutrition can be a natural and supportive way of starting family life and something that will sustain you during the more difficult moments with sleepless nights, less focus on yourself and later on, juggling work again.
“Joanna has been an incredible help throughout my first year of motherhood. She is very knowledgeable about items for both me and my baby; where she doesn’t know, she researches the topic. She was very happy to share her own experiences, whether they were positive or negative. I would highly recommend her services.” (Veronika)
An initial consultation takes place after you have completed a questionnaire to help me find out more about you and your wellbeing needs.
Follow-up consultations are then to discuss how you have been feeling since and whether the suggested actions have helped you.
At each session, we will discuss your overall wellbeing and make sure we come up with recommendations that are suitable and achievable for you.
“Joanna has supported me through late pregnancy and the first year post-partum with sound advice. Her responses to my queries were always careful, considered, and clearly well-researched. She also was on hand to share insight from her own experience as a first-time mother on all matters from breastfeeding to weaning, suggesting delicious, nutritious baby recipes. This was very reassuring as I found weaning a far more emotional and anxiety-ridden transition than I had anticipated. Time and again she has proved to be a very perceptive, knowledgeable and professional companion on my journey into motherhood and I highly recommend her.” (Celine)
If you're ready to feel supported with your pregnancy journey and feeling healthy through it, book your first session today.
