Powerful Nutritional Management
During Preconception and Pregnancy

If you knew there was a way to decrease the risk of chronic disease in your baby, would you make the changes during pregnancy? The proper energy and nutrition that passes through you and into your baby as they grow will create an environment with the potential to decrease the risk of asthma, allergies, cardiometabolic disease, autism spectrum disorders, obesity, and metabolic syndrome. Did you know that by approaching pregnancy the GrowBaby Way you dramatically decrease the risk of gestational diabetes, pregnancy induced hypertension, and small and large for gestational age babies? GrowBaby will help teach you that your decisions are powerful. The foods you choose will change the way that your body responds to pregnancy and improve your health outcomes and those of your child.

"GrowBaby completely changed how I think about food. It helped keep me and my baby healthy while I was pregnant and breastfeeding, and helped me get a jump start on eating healthy and losing my "baby weight" when it came time to do that. Love, love this product. I wish everyone in the world had access to it!"

"Today I had vegetable soup for lunch! I've come a long way with my eating habits! Growbaby classes helped me learn the importance of meals like this one. My daughter is two and to this day she's never had any bug, ear infection, cold, she's never been on any antibiotics, the list goes on. My son is five months old and he is on the same good track. It's great to see how food can affect your family in such positive ways!"

"I love this app. GrowBaby Pro gives your prenatal and postnatal patients the guidance to feel comfortable that they are feeding themselves and their baby sufficiently. The day–to-day feedback on nutrients and calories is so valuable. In the process of tracking their food intake, it is teaching your patient about the power of nutrition."

GrowBaby Mom® is an individualized nutrition program responsive to all three trimesters of pregnancy, including breastfeeding. It is readily adaptable to preconception nutrition, healthy baby weight management, and stress management. The focus is on what you can do, not what you can't do. Don't worry about tracking calories, we've already done that for you. Know that your GrowBaby plan will track the nutrient density of your foods. Nutrient density is far more important than caloric density, but don't worry, we've got you covered there too. The nutrition lifestyle that you adopt while pregnant will have an impact on many generations of your family, not just the baby that's growing inside of you. This lifestyle can be learned in 9 months with the right tools and the right support. Our tools may seem simple, but that's because we've calculated your needs based on you as an individual. We've done it all for you so you don't have to worry about anything else. All you have to do it eat and grow your baby. Learn more about validated evidence and scientific support for GrowBaby®.
