Have you recently been diagnosed with Gestational Diabetes?

Not sure where to start?

Hi!  My name is Alexa and I am a Registered Dietitian and Certified Diabetes Educator.  I have worked for over a decade with women who have Gestational Diabetes.  The one thing that comes up, time and time, is the feeling of having to wait until you see a Dietitian or a Diabetes Educator to find out what to do!  It can be scary and frustrating to have to wait!  

Why not get started now?!  I have created this course to give you the basics of nutrition, and beyond, to control your blood sugars and stay healthy in pregnancy!  

I have included information based on questions and concerns I have heard from women over the years.  This isn't just a generic meal plan to follow...  these modules include tips and tricks that have worked for my clients over the years, that I now want to share with you!
