Helping women prepare for pregnancy and grow a healthy brainy baby

Online Preconception & Pregnancy Dietitian

Australia and Worldwide

Hi, I’m Marike!

I’m a Preconception and Pregnancy Dietitian and have a big-heart passion for helping women prepare for pregnancy and grow a healthy brainy baby!

Nutrition during the three months leading up to conception and throughout your pregnancy can set your baby up for a lifetime of success. This includes better health, higher IQ, and reduced chronic disease later in life.

Not to mention, better nutrition during this time can also help YOU, the beautiful Mama, to have the energy and support you need to enjoy the process, prevent common nutrient deficiencies, and reduce unwanted pregnancy complications.

You and your baby are so worth it, and it’s my greatest privilege to support you on this most exciting, crazy, and life-changing journey!

How I can help

When is the best time to start preparing your body for pregnancy?

Is it two years, one year, six months, or three months before? The short answer is – now.

The sooner you can start to nurture and care for yourself (and your future or growing baby), the better!

At least 3 months before can provide a great amount of time to prepare a strong foundation for pregnancy (I call this the Groundwork Trimester). If you’ve got pre-existing health conditions, a little longer may be required.

If you’re already pregnant, then this is ok too! Nutrition support during each trimester of your pregnancy journey can support you and your baby in a powerful way. It’s never too late to start!

My goal is to help you create a lifestyle, a way of eating, that is sustainable and makes you feel good and supported before and during your entire pregnancy journey.

My goal it to remove the guilt and overwhelm, and make nutrition during pregnancy fun!
