Why WHNA?

Women’s Health Nutrition Academy all started with a conversation. Lily and Ayla were venting about their frustrations surrounding the lack of quality—and engaging—continuing education opportunities in women’s health. Those that were available were in-person conferences that required expensive travel and time away from business and life. Essentially, we wanted to create learning opportunities that would be a) evidence-based b) affordable and c) easy-to-access, especially for working mamas and business owners.

Women’s Health Nutrition Academy would address all these issues—and allow us to address the endless stream of questions we get from fellow dietitians who take a functional nutrition and real food approach to nutrition practice.

Who our courses are for: Our in-depth and evidence-based courses are targeted to healthcare professionals — dietitians/nutritionists, midwives, doulas, and any other healthcare practitioners that offer services for women’s health (such as fertility and preconception planning, prenatal care, postpartum support, and beyond). Reference lists for presentations, if applicable, are provided.

That said, ALL are welcome to attend our webinars—whether or not you’re a healthcare provider.

Nutrition for Breastfeeding

Many health professionals and public health campaigns cite that “breast milk is the perfect food” for infants. Yet, even with all of its well-documented benefits, a growing body of research indicates that the nutritional content of breast milk is not fixed, but rather is impacted by a mother’s diet and nutrient stores. This webinar will take a closer look at the research on the nutritional variation in breast milk, nutrients that are affected by maternal intake, and strategies to boost the nutritional value to ensure breastfed infants receive adequate intake.

Postpartum Recovery & Nutrient Repletion

The miracle of growing and birthing a human being is arguably the most “nutritionally expensive” task in a woman’s lifetime. With so much attention placed on prenatal nutrition, there’s surprisingly little discussion of postpartum nutrient needs. This webinar will explore the rationale for postpartum nutrient repletion and tie together what we know from both modern research and the postpartum practices of traditional cultures.
