Prenatal Nutrition

Eating a healthy, balanced diet during pregnancy is incredibly important for both mother and child. 

However, ingrained habits and an overabundance of information can make it hard for New York mothers to maintain proper nutrition. 

Award-winning registered dietitian Allison Schulman can help you eat the healthiest diet possible to protect your child. 

The Importance of Prenatal Nutrition

A healthy lifestyle and diet during the prenatal period is incredibly important. Unfortunately, American mothers are often hurt during pregnancy by existing bad diets and nutrition myths. The truth is, the key is to eat a varied diet rich in nutrients – a principle registered dietitian Allison Schulman impresses upon her patients. 

According to research published in the peer-reviewed journal American Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology, the majority of women do not meet optimal nutrition and health before or during pregnancy. Research shows that both excess and insufficient weight can harm pregnancy and a baby's health, leading to fertility and conception complications, fetus development issues, and more.

Poor Prenatal Nutrition Can Harm Your Baby For Life

Our prenatal nutritionist cannot overstate the importance of a patient's diet and lifestyle before and during pregnancy. 

Research proves that a baby that is inadequately nourished in the womb has an increased risk of diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease, and other conditions in adulthood.

Choose Our Dietitian To Achieve Optimal Nutrition

Our nutritionist prides herself on helping women who are pregnant. New York patients come to her both to learn what to eat and what to avoid. She is here to alleviate some of the stress of being pregnant by picking which supplements you should take, selecting the foods that will set your baby up for a healthy life, and clarifying which items should be minimized in a healthy prenatal diet.
"Allison was great. Very patient, nice and smart! She sat with me for over an hour to discuss my eating habits and came up with a personalized meal plan. I did not have to wait and the 8AM appointment is hard to find and perfect for my work schedule."
