One of the requirements as a second-year student at the Nutrition Therapy Institute is to complete 50 hours of internship work. Since I love to work with anything related to fertility, pregnancy, and kids, I decided to reach out to Belly Bliss to see if they needed an intern. Belly Bliss is a resource for moms and moms-to-be in the Denver area, providing education and services for fertility, pregnancy, and beyond. They hold workshops and classes on important subjects that many women don’t know enough about, such as cloth diapering vs. disposable, vaccines for your kids, childbirth methods, and breastfeeding. Anyway, it’s a really great resource and even though they’ve only been around for a couple of years, they are doing really well.
The nutritionist at Belly Bliss happened to go to NTI as well, so she and I share similar views on how nutrition should be approached. Her name is Sara Peternell, and you can read more about her here.
Sara is holding a workshop one week from today, on Monday, October 25th at Belly Bliss in Cherry Creek (300 Josephine Street, Denver, 80206), from 7:00 – 8:00 pm. The workshop is called Pregnancy Nutrition: A Trimester-by-Trimester Roadmap to Healthy Baby and Mom. She will talk about the importance of good nutrition for conception and then throughout pregnancy, for both baby and mom. She will also address the changing nutritional needs during each trimester of pregnancy. The class is only $15 and I promise you will learn some very valuable information, whether you are currently pregnant or would like to be pregnant sometime soon. I think many women do not realize that good nutrition is just as important for conceiving a baby as it is for carrying a baby, so starting early is the best route to take.
If you are interested in signing up for Sara’s class, go here to register. Scroll down to where it says "Newly Added Workshops..." and then "Click Here to Read More". Click and find the nutrition class (they are organized by date). Pre-registration is required, and it can all be done very easily online. Also, please forward this to anyone else who may be interested! Thanks, and see you there!
