This week Kristen & Talia talk with Lily Nichols who is a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist & Gestational Diabetes Educator. She looks at the advice (or lack thereof) from our doctors when it comes to pregnancy and postpartum nutrition. She has two books Real Food For Pregnancy & Real Food For Gestational Diabetes where she dives into these subjects in a manageable way for the everyday consumer. The girls ask about Vitamin D transfer through breastmilk, how thyroid function is tested in pregnancy, and how to increase iron stores. They discuss how the current recommendations do not take into account the six weeks of bleeding from an internal wound after giving birth. This episode is so informative and every woman should hear it!
