Limited to 12 participants, this intimate experience provides everything you need to know for nourishing your body and growing baby, preparing for labor, and optimizing postpartum healing.

 

Through these 16 interactive, 90-minute sessions, you'll learn, share, and grow along with others at the same stage of pregnancy. 

 

Equal parts education, community, and personal exploration, we developed the program we believe every birthing person deserves.  

Nutrition, Herbal Remedies

& Everyday Rituals

Facilitated by holistic nutritionist, chef, and momma Carly Wertheim MS, these sessions are nutrition education with a culinary twist. They're equal parts nutrition science and kitchen wisdom, with an emphasis on intuitive eating, natural remedies, and cultivating body awareness.

Taught by doula Melissa Tarras, these immersive, experiential classes take the unknown out of childbirth and leave you knowing what to expect. We cover everything from anatomy and contractions to pain management and comfort techniques.

Postpartum Support

Join your cohort and Pod facillitators for two postpartum sessions to share birth stories, have your questions answered, and find community and support during this exciting and challenging new time.

We know, it's not traditional to start a pregnancy program before 12 weeks...

Maybe you haven't even told your closest friends yet. While we completely respect what ever decision you've made about sharing the news with others, nutrition during your first trimester is vital. There are key nutrients you need to be getting for your baby's development and foods that may help prevent defects during this growth stage.

 

We want to be sure this essential information is in your hands. That's why you'll receive recordings of the first two classes immediately when you sign up for the Pregnancy Pod. These classes will cover Nutrition for Pregnancy 101 and Food Strategies, Herbal Remedies, and Lifestyle Medicine for Pregnancy that will help you in your first trimester. When pod registration has closed, we'll begin live classes. 

And because we know you can't control what happens in your pregnancy, we offer a 100% refund, no questions asked, anytime before registration closes. 

For those desiring a group program and individualized

support,we developed the DELUXE package.
