Praise for Healthy Mama, Happy Baby
“I am 7 weeks pregnant with my first baby and hungry for the best info out there. As I started my research, I was quickly overwhelmed with so many options and couldn’t figure out where to start. HMHB was the perfect solution to a well-organized, step-by-step guide. It provided so many wonderful resources but didn’t overwhelm me. I am forever grateful for Stephanie and Melissa’s efforts in creating this program. There is nothing like this out there. Excited for other moms to experience the sense of comfort and confidence I now have with the information I learned and am stilling learning from HMHB.”
“The HMHB virtual handbook is a wonderful resource for all mamas and mamas-to-be during such a crucial, confusing and hormonal period of life. Stephanie’s refreshing, evidence-based explanations are easy-to-digest and make all the confusion about the conflicting nutrition and pregnancy advice out there evaporate. Each lesson is also followed by very practical and easy-to-implement actionable steps. Her enthusiasm and passion make you want to hit the grocery store to stock up on healthy foods and get cooking right away! I sincerely believe that this virtual pregnancy handbook will help empower so many mamas to use the power of real food to reach optimal health and keep them, baby and the whole family happy.”
“HMHB virtual pregnancy handbook is an excellent resource for moms-to-be who are looking for incredible and reputable nutrition advice. Stephanie’s warm and balanced approach to explaining many of the questions women face during pregnancy creates a space where a mom can feel educated and empowered to make the best decision for her health and baby’s. Each video is packed full of valuable information in easy to digest segments with actionable items to get you implementing everything you’ve learned. The HMHB handbook can help you navigate through the endless information to understand how you can best serve your body.”
“The Healthy Mama program is the most comprehensive prenatal program I have seen during my time as a natural childbirth educator and birth advocate. Optimal nutrition in pregnancy is the foundation for a safe and satisfying birth experience, a healthy baby, and a physically and emotionally prepared mama. When expecting women have energy and are comfortable, they are less likely to choose interventions at the end of pregnancy that may increase risks to them and their baby. This program helps parents make healthy and informed decisions for themselves and their babies.”

“As a Certified Professional Midwife, I’m impressed to see all of this great information in one place! Everything you need to know about having a healthy pregnancy is in the Whole30 Healthy Mama, Happy Baby Program. Thank you for creating this amazing program. I’m excited to share it with my clients.”
“The information and support found in the Whole30 Healthy Mama, Happy Baby program will guide families through the profound transition of pregnancy, birth and postpartum. Our food and movement choices are the foundation to a healthy pregnancy. I spend many hours counseling families on nutrition and exercise, especially as our cultural understanding of pregnancy and birth is decidedly unhealthy (“You can eat for two!”). The information provided in the Healthy Mama, Happy Baby program is what I counsel my families on every day. Further, the program provides a good dose of common sense and encourages critical thinking and choice in your health and health care—one of the cornerstones of midwifery care. It is an excellent guide and companion through your healthy and hopefully, empowered pregnancy, birth and beyond!”
