Pregnancy Must-Haves From a First Time Fit Mom



I started my health and fitness journey over 10 years now.


From the moment we decided it was the right time for us to get pregnant, I was committed to sharing just how possible it is to continue being fit and healthy throughout pregnancy.


It's been a wonderful privilege.


I'm sure you can relate when I say I feel an undeniable duty to care for my vessel as best I can at this special stage -- to do everything I can to make sure my body is at its best in order to continue incubating at its best.


My passion lies in empowering women in their health and fitness. I especially love researching high-quality nutrition and fitness tools for you. I put in the work to make your life easier.


So to help, I have rounded up some of my favorite products to support your own fit pregnancy journey.


I am by no means a doctor, nutritionist, or expert so please, take this list with a grain of salt and consult your Dr./Midwife before trying anything new.

Ultimate Power Greens

My coach shop, $54.95

A combination of 6 powerful greens, including kale, matcha, cucumber, celery, spinach and chlorella.


The 1st trimester was no fun. Power greens kept me nourished when all I felt like eating were crappy no nutrition refined carbs. I had major food aversions the first few weeks and I imagined it would only get worse if I didn't nourish myself and baby properly. I ended up ordering a box of these ( 30 packets) and it was an absolute game changer! I would either pour a packet into a glass of water with salt and lemon or pour them into a banana shake. I felt a lot better knowing I was still nourishing my body even though I wasn't eating nearly enough greens.

The most nourishing way to get a good night’s sleep. Feels like a dream. It’s the best way to leave your stress behind and feel great the next day. I started off my pregnancy averaging 4 trips to the RR and tossing and turning for hours. This tea has been so good to me.

Ease magnesium spray helps you get better sleep. Magnesium is an effective, natural remedy for relaxing muscles and preventing the cramps, spasms, leg pain, and restless legs syndrome that may keep us awake during pregnancy.

If your goal is healthier a healthier bowel movement...

I personally have so much faith in ACV for MANY things. In this case, 1 tsp of ACV before each meal will help your digestion and help reduce that pesky indigestion that appears during pregnancy. * note: It must read unfiltered "with the mother"
