Choose to Sweat with Julie during your active pregnancy! Coach Julie appreciates that you trust her to help you navigate your physical activity during your pregnancy and into the postpartum period. Everyone’s experience is different, so let’s start out by accepting that this time is not about getting into better shape or losing body fat, but that the priority is your health and that of your baby. He or she is depending upon you for their development. The foods you eat are their building blocks, so good and adequate nutrition is very important. Dieting or restricting your caloric intake is not recommended for this reason – you and the little fetus within need that energy to grow together.
It’s amazing that you are dedicated to being as healthy as possible for your little one! It is proven that women who are active before and/or during their pregnancies have less complications and pain, and even experience easier deliveries.

Your Baby Needs You!
Maternal nutrition is incredibly important. Everyone’s experience is different, so let’s start out by accepting that this time is not about getting into better shape or losing body fat, but that the priority is your health and that of your baby. He or she is depending upon you for their development. The foods you eat are their building blocks, so good and adequate nutrition is very important. Dieting or restricting your caloric intake is not recommended for this reason – you and the little fetus within need that energy to grow together.
Coach Julie outlines how many extra calories you need and the vitamins that your baby craves during their stages of development. Your calories requirements change during each trimester, when breastfeeding and when you resume exercise after delivery! There are also foods to avoid and more key points that are covered.
Julie Germaine is an advocate of breastfeeding and loves to talk about it! Fed is best; not every mother chooses to breastfeed and that is totally fine! Breastfeeding can be a challenge, so if you need help or have questions, please reach out.
