Not surpisingly, healthy eating and nutrition are topics which often come up on First Time Mum’s Chat and I’ve interviewed a number of wonderful ladies on these topics.
My observation is that the focus is often mainly on weight and of course for new moms ensuring that their intake is beneficial to breastfeeding. However, something that I feel is often neglected when eating regimes are being revised and planned is the topic of brain health. Too often, this takes a back seat and you’ll hear from today’s guest, holistic nutritionist and Brain Health Coach, Julie Gervais about why an intake of brain healthy foods is so important.
After all, by feeding our brains healthy nutrient dense foods, we are providing it what it needs to help us live fuller and richer lives.

About Julie Gervais
A 2017 graduate of the Canadian School of Natural Nutrition, Julie holds the title of Registered Holistic Nutritionist (R.H.N.). She is also an active member of the Canadian Association of Holistic Nutrition Professionals (CAHN-Pro).
Prior to her studies in nutrition, Julie obtained an undergraduate degree in Psychology and a Master’s degree in Theology. She has worked numerous years in the mental health field within a multidisciplinary environment, where she learned that each person is a complex system with mental, physical and spiritual needs that need to be addressed in order to reach fulfillment and happiness. Little did she know that her experience in the mental health field in combination with her interest for spiritual matters would lead her to nutrition, where she would finally combine all three interests, that is mind, body and spirit, as a holistic nutritionist.
Julie is also certified as a Brain Health Coach through Amen University.
