Meet Your Coach and Prenatal Dietitian

Hi, I'm Rahaf Al Bochi, a Registered Dietitian, diabetes educator and mama to my toddler girl. As a new mama I know how important it is to have a healthy pregnancy and baby. Pregnancy can feel lonely, and having to think about blood sugars or a diagnosis of gestational diabetes is overwhelming and stressful. I've seen time and time again how nutrition and lifestyle can help women lower blood sugars and grow a healthy baby. Whether you have diabetes, PCOS, gestational diabetes or are at risk for gestational diabetes, I've helped women just like you lower blood sugars and have a healthy pregnancy through my proven framework that I teach in my program.

A Client Success Story

"The information we received really gave me accessible tools to manage my blood sugar. Learning the plate method and trying to transition into a more Mediterranean diet felt easier than I thought it would be. Also being more forgiving with myself and celebrating smaller wins has helped with stress and made my pregnancy more enjoyable. If you are feeling overwhelmed by the idea of GDM and navigating how to manage your blood sugars this course will give you so many tools to help. They are all fairly simple. Rahaf is so encouraging and supportive throughout the whole program so you don't feel alone and you feel empowered to take control of your GDM!"

Are YOU at risk for GDM?

Up to 18% of pregnancies can develop gestational diabetes. If any of the following applies to you, you're at risk!

You are 25 years or older

You have a history of GDM in a previous pregnancy 

You have PCOS

You have Prediabetes

You live a sedentary lifestyle (not physically active)

You belong to a high risk ethnicity (African American, Latin American, Native American, Asian American, Pacific Islander)

You have a history of diabetes in the family (immediate family)

You previously delivered a baby weighing more than 9 lbs (4.1 kg)

WHY should you balance blood sugars in pregnancy?

BLOOD SUGARS AFFECT BOTH MOM AND BABY!

  • High blood sugars affect fetal development and growth

  • High blood sugars can lead to birth injury, NICU hospitalizations, and a predisposition for baby to be overweight in later years

  • High blood sugars may cause early or term C-sections and preeclampsia

  • High blood sugars can increase risk for type 2 diabetes for mom and recurring GDM in the future

  • Balanced blood sugars result in less food cravings and mood swings= no more sugar cravings

  • Balanced blood sugars helps with reducing nausea, heartburn and fatigue

FAQ

  • What is your nutrition coaching philosophy? What makes you different?

    I practice from a non-diet, weight neutral approach. The focus is on developing healthy behaviors that are supportive of balancing/lowering blood sugars instead of focusing on a number on the scale or restrictive diets. I love helping mamas discover a positive nutrition, Mediterranean lifestyle approach where food is meant to be enjoyed without guilt. Nutrition is personalized as each pregnant women has unique nutrient requirements and carb thresholds.

    The zoom video coaching calls will be bi-weekly- a poll will be sent out to students to determine the best time for everyone.
