Hi, I’m Haley Miskowiec- a registered dietitian nutritionist who was born and raised in Minnesota. I help expecting mamas have a healthy, feel good pregnancy by helping them eat confidently to grow a healthy baby & feel good in their pregnancy body.
After my dietetic internship, I began my career with the Women, Infant, and Children program which is where I fell in love helping expecting mamas achieve a healthy pregnancy. After seeing hundreds of expecting mamas, I started to see a pattern that they were coming into their appointments with me confused, scared, and misinformed about how to apply what they had been told at their doctor appointment to eating to achieve a healthy pregnancy along with how they could simply change what they were eating to help them manage the symptoms they were experiencing.
As a new mama myself, I know how hard it can be. I formally spent HOURS searching support groups, instagram, and google trying to figure out how to start my pregnancy journey shortly after my husband and I discussed when we were going to start our family. I figured with the knowledge I have gained with working with thousands of expecting moms preparing for this would be a breeze. Though to my surprise, my searches only led me to all kinds of conflicting and confusing information on preconception nutrition, when to stop my birth control, nutrients birth control depletes, how long it would take for us to get pregnant, etc. I began to worry that we should have started planning sooner. So, I acted and began using my research skills to compile the latest up to date information figuring out it didn’t need to be this complicated
I now simplify nutrition information to help expecting mamas understand how to eat to have a healthy baby. In addition, I help them manage morning sickness, nausea and avoid unnecessary weight gain to achieve a healthy, feel good pregnancy.
My food philosophy
Our diets are not just about the food we eat but our history with it, our culture, family, preferences, health, cost, access, etc. Therefore, I do not believe nutrition is a “one size fits all” My approach takes into consideration your individual needs along with your history with it. No fads or quick fixes here just evidenced-based, transparent guidance. I believe all foods fit and your prenatal nutrition shouldn’t be “perfect”, but it should be nourishing, balanced, and consistent.
