To help mothers with gestational diabetes adjust to their new diet by minimizing the complexity.
This will be accomplished by providing relevant content, tools and tasty recipes to relieve mothers from overwhelming guesswork of how to balance this new lifestyle with everything else.
Because as mothers we take care of everyone and everything else, but I am here to serve you #CauseMamasGottaEatToo.
In the midst of what was the most hectic time in my life, I was diagnosed with gestational diabetes in my first pregnancy. It dropped like a bomb. The concern for her health was a hovering storm cloud, and trying to fathom a lifestyle change at that point was beyond overwhelming. Discouraged and confused after leaving the nutritionist’s office, I went home and googled ‘gestationaldiabetes.com’ and ‘gestationaldiabetesdiet.com’. To my surprise, neither site existed. Even more confused, I read a few of the results from a Google search but ended feeling no more informed than before searching.
Fast forward two years, after delivering a healthy baby, and another 13 months later without a gestational diabetes diagnosis, it occurred to me that other mothers go through the exact circumstances I faced. Those feelings of wanting to provide for and protect Baby, but feeling overwhelmed and defeated are emotions that probably every gestational diabetes mother undergoes. So, I created The Gestational Diabetic brand to serve the community. It started as an idea for a cookbook and very quickly morphed into a brand that is determined to establish familiarity and trust, address the needs of the community and relieve some of your stress.
All of this just started in April 2018, so I’m working (as much as these two toddlers will let me) to get you relevant content and recipes that look like what you eat every day. There’s a lot on the horizon, so stay tuned!
