Expert in Veganism & Plant Based Nutrition
Give your baby the best possible start in life
There’s no such thing as a perfect pregnancy.
Whether this is your first time or your fourth, there will be surprises, challenges, and bumps along the way!
When I started supporting vegan women in pregnancy, I noticed very little information out there. Most pregnancy advice talked about animal and meat products.
Health professionals are often hesitant to advise on veganism or plant-based diets during pregnancy, which can result in mums feeling confused and questioning whether they need to eat animal products for a healthy pregnancy.
This is not true, and I’m here to support and empower you.
If you’re currently pregnant, or planning pregnancy, following advice from an expert in vegan pregnancy and plant based nutrition during this all-important time can help to ensure nutritional balance for you and your baby.

Supporting you throughout your pregnancy
From my own experience of pregnancy, I understand how overwhelming it can be when you’re bombarded with advice from friends, family, pregnancy books, and the internet. I’ve also experienced the mum-to-be guilt of wondering if I’m eating the right things for myself and my baby.
I understand how people can be quick to question if you are vegan or following a plant based diet in pregnancy.
The truth is, there’s no one-size-fits-all approach. It really depends on your lifestyle, body type, and dietary requirements. Through an in-depth consultation, I can offer practical and tailored dietary advice to put your mind at ease, and answer any questions you might have, such as:
“How much weight gain is normal during pregnancy?”
“Do I need to take a vegan B12 supplement while pregnant?”
“Can I meet my iodine levels through vegan food?”
“What’s the best plant based milk?”
“Where can I get a vegan omega 3 supplement?”
“The smell of food makes me feel awful, is this normal?”
“I have pregnancy sickness and just can’t eat a balanced diet. What do I do?”
As a registered dietitian and an expert in vegan prenatal nutrition, I only provide evidence-based advice, backed up by the latest research. You can trust me to support you throughout your pregnancy, and my advice is simple and easy to follow.
S Sh ShockWhy work with a dietitian during pregnancy?
Pregnancy is a huge change for your body to go through, and as I’ve experienced, health professionals can be scared of women following veganism or a plant based diet in pregnancy. I have also heard of mums being told that eating meat is the only way to have a healthy pregnancy.
I’m here to dispel that myth and give you expert support at this important time.
Working with an expert in vegan pre-natal nutrition can help to ease any anxieties you might and empower you with the knowledge of how to support the nutritional needs of yourself and your baby.
