Are you an expectant parent navigating the challenges of gestational diabetes?

Do you feel lost and frustrated when well-meaning but often unsolicited advice comes your way?

Have you ever felt alone or overwhelmed in your gestational diabetes journey, wondering if anyone truly understands what you’re going through?

Do you wish you could manage your gestational diabetes without feeling restricted and consumed by food rules?

Are you searching for meal ideas, blood sugar management strategies, or simply a supportive community to lean on during this challenging time?

If you found yourself nodding along to any of these questions, you’re not alone. Many parents-to-be face the same emotions and struggles while managing gestational diabetes. However, I have some good news. There’s a powerful resource waiting for you: our Virtual Diabetes Support Group!

I’m excited to introduce you to something truly special, that will change the way you experience your gestational diabetes journey. As a Gestational Diabetes Intuitive Eating Dietitian and Doula, I understand the unique challenges and emotions that come with managing gestational diabetes.

Pregnancy is a remarkable journey, but it can also be filled with uncertainties, anxieties, and a plethora of unsolicited advice from well-meaning family and friends. The emotional rollercoaster of managing gestational diabetes can sometimes leave you feeling alone, overwhelmed, and in need of guidance. This support group is here to change that!

What is the Gestational Diabetes Support Group?

This support group is a 4-week program designed to provide you with a strong network of support during your gestational diabetes journey. We meet once a week, offering a safe, non-judgmental space for you to connect with other expectant parents facing similar challenges. PLUS you’ll gain access to a private group chat for support between calls. This will be a place to share wins, ask questions, make recommendations, and more!

Here’s what you can expect from our virtual support group:

1. Professional Expertise: As an intuitive eating registered dietitian specialized in gestational diabetes, I will provide you with the latest evidence-based information to help you manage your condition effectively. I’ll guide you on intuitive eating principles to nourish both you and your baby during this critical time.

2. Doula Support: I also have extensive experience as a doula, so we can discuss your birth plan, answer any questions you may have, and help you prepare for the beautiful moment when you meet your little one.

3. Community Connection: You’ll join a community of like-minded individuals who truly understand what you’re going through. You’ll be able to share your thoughts, concerns, and experiences without the fear of judgment.

4. Answers To Your Burning Questions: Do you have burning questions about gestational diabetes? Our support group is the perfect place to get them answered. Whether it’s about meal ideas, blood sugar monitoring, intuitive eating, or managing stress, we’ve got you covered.

5. Empowerment: I believe in empowering you with knowledge and support, so you can feel confident in managing your gestational diabetes. I will provide you with valuable resources and tips to make your journey as smooth as possible (without the side of judgment or diet talk that often comes with traditional gestational diabetes advice).

Why Join Our Gestational Diabetes Support Group?

You might be wondering why you should join this paid support group when there’s so much information available online. The answer is simple: the power of community and professional guidance.

When you’re dealing with gestational diabetes, having a group of supportive peers and an experienced dietitian-doula in your corner can make all the difference. This group is here to help you navigate the ups and downs, combat feelings of isolation, and replace self-blame with self-empowerment.

This gestational diabetes support group offers a cost-effective way to access specialized knowledge and build connections with folks who are in a similar place. My desire is for you to feel confident and in control during this pivotal time in your life, and know you aren’t alone in your journey. By meeting with others in a similar circumstance or season of life, you’ll be able to build connections and feel both seen and heard.

Looking For Additional Guidance or More Than Group Support?

This support group makes an excellent addition to my 1:1 nutrition counseling if you’re also interested in getting more personalized support. Inside 1:1 coaching we’ll be able to dive deeper into your specific experiences, relationship with food, and craft a custom plan in a more private setting. Ready to apply for 1:1? Not sure which option is best? Book a free, no-stress discovery call to review your options and learn more.
