pregnancy nutrition

A nutritious, well-balanced diet is one of the greatest gifts you can give your developing little one.

When you’re pregnant, eating healthy foods is more important than ever. Pregnancy nutrition is essential to a healthy baby. You need more protein, iron, calcium, and folic acid than you did before pregnancy to ensure baby’s optimal growth and development.

Supplying your own body with a tasty blend of nutritious foods can improve your fertility, keep you feeling healthy during pregnancy, and pave the way for an easier labor.

The nurse-midwives at Birthwell Los Angeles strive to keep their mothers healthy and low-risk by focusing on optimal nutrition throughout their pregnancy.

Each woman as part of her prenatal care has a thorough functional nutritional analysis with wellness expert Leona West.

Close attention and follow-up to the nutritional needs of the woman are fundamental to the Birthwell philosophy, as studies show that good nutrition in pregnancy leads to healthier babies and decreases birth complications.


Leona is a family practitioner who treats many conditions and whole families through functional medicine nutrition. Additionally over the last 10 years Leona has also specialized in the particular areas of autoimmune conditions, digestive conditions and fertility.

Leona is considered a fertility expert, helping many couples overcome months or years of fertility challenges and go on to conceive and deliver healthy babies.
