Episode 66 - Gestational Diabetes and Pregnancy Nutrition with Lily Nichols RDN The Ultimate Birth Partner Podcast

    • How To

In this episode I am chatting with Lily Nichols RDN who shares with us why it's useful to know more about the foods you eat and how they can affect your blood sugar levels. We spoke in detail about the different screening methods for Gestational Diabetes and why it's important to understand what each test is for - so you will know if you want to accept or decline.  Lily also gave tips on how to improve your diet and lessen the chances of being diagnosed with gestational diabetes in general or other complications of pregnancy like high or low fluids, pre eclampsia. We also covered what to eat when on a budget and what you might like to consider if you are a vegan and want to increase certain nutrients in your diet.
