While conducting research during our own pregnancies, we realized that there simply wasn’t a program for women like us, who believe in whole food nutrition, nurturing self-care, and community connection, while understanding that balance is necessary, and perfection is not. We couldn’t find a single comprehensive resource that didn’t scare us, judge us, or bully us into believing that no matter what we did, we weren’t taking good enough care of ourselves or our babies. So, we created one.
Healthy Mama, Happy Baby program pairs a virtual pregnancy handbook with an exclusive online community. Please enjoy this free sample chapter from our HMHB handbook.

Pregnancy Diets: An Overview (Bonus Video)
Websites and Web Articles
- Review the pregnancy diets that are available and decide what sounds best for you. Note: the Whole30 inspired pregnancy diet can be very beneficial for those with gestational diabetes.
- Discuss your current diet or any diet changes with your provider and/or dietitian. Unfortunately, your diet often doesn’t get as much attention as it deserves from healthcare providers.
- Keep an open-mind about your diet during pregnancy as your preferences may change from trimester to trimester.
“I wanted to start learning about healthy, natural pregnancy before I got pregnant, and I wanted a one-stop shop. There is so much information out there, and I like that the HMHB program is packaged for me to avoid information fatigue! The information in the HMHB Handbook is thorough and helpful. Linking to other sources of research and information makes the viewpoints of the program seem well-researched and grounded.” – Jane T.
“I worked with Steph doing private coaching during my first pregnancy. I joined HMHB during my first #twoweekwait while trying again for baby number two. I felt like I needed some guidance, rules, and info to read to distract me from worrying about all the bad things I know can happen. The support from Steph and the group plus proper nutrition and sleep have relieved a lot of my stress from TTC. With info from the HMHB program and the supportive ladies in the Facebook group, I have set myself up for success for when I do get pregnant again.” – Luciana F.
