If you are pregnant or hoping to soon be pregnant, do you feel empowered to know what you should and shouldn’t be eating? Do you know how to look after yourself so that you have the best pregnancy for you? The answer is probably not. We certainly didn’t.
With 4 (and soon to be 5!) children between us, we found that pregnancy can be a time of information overload from what’s happening to you and your body, your growing baby, what to eat, what not to eat, what to buy for the nursery, baby names, baby clothes, maternity clothes…the list is endless! Doctors and midwives are focused on keeping you and your baby safe and well throughout pregnancy and delivery, however, they are time poor and don’t have the resources to help you implement healthy changes into your life. So you’re left to figure it out through the internet, books and well-meaning friends and relatives… Not ideal!
Having been frustrated by the lack of reliable and straight-talking information available on pregnancy, we went on a mission to consolidate nutrition and lifestyle information in one place. So, if you want a healthy, happy pregnancy that you feel in control of, then you’re in the right place. Using coaching tools for self-exploration and planning we make this course easy to follow and work in to your already-busy life. The course is flexible meaning you can do it whenever and wherever suits you and we bring our nutrition and lifestyle knowledge to you in a personal and relatable way.
What will I get at the end of the course?
• A tailored Master Plan designed specifically for you and by you
• Tools to enable the plan to work and keep you on track
• Knowledge to empower you to achieve your goals
• We will help you to tap into your inner motivation to make the plan work
On our website you can see a full breakdown of the Course Content:
• There is a downloadable Workbook for you to use throughout the course, covering areas including:
• Exploration – Self-discovery which, helps you to establish your goals
• Nutrition in pregnancy
• Applying Nutrition Learnings to 'My Master Plan'

• All culminating in your very own Master Plan
I’m a mum of three small children, and a have my own health coaching business so I know all about juggling real life when time is scarce. I have a passion for living a healthy and fulfilling life, spurred on by wanting the best for my family, particularly setting up my kids with a healthy understanding of balance when it comes to nutrition and lifestyle.
By drawing on my own experiences of pregnancy, particularly fending off so much conflicting information, I was adamant that the first course we roll out with was a consolidated, go-to place for pregnant women to be empowered with knowledge and the ability to implement this information into their own life to give them the happiest and healthiest pregnancy.
With an undergraduate degree in Management Science and Information Systems, and having worked for over 10 years in TV, film and commercials production, my stressful, hectic working lifestyle convinced me to make the switch to become a Nutrition, Health and Wellness Coach. Studying with the Institute of Health Sciences enabled me to coach clients to achieve their personal goals taking a very holistic approach and being lead by the individual’s own agenda.
By forming the WellNow Company with Jessie we feel we can positively impact the maximum amount of people.
I’m a Mum to one little girl with another baby on the way in August 2018 so working on our first course, Empowered Pregnancy has been hugely relevant for me and also meant I’ve got to road-test all of the course content.
Having worked in advertising for over 10 years in London and Dublin, I've gained a huge amount of experience both professionally and personally. The exciting world of adland meant I got to work with some incredibly talented people but my perspective and priorities shifted once I became a Mum.
I’ve always had a keen interest in nutrition and health and so, I followed my natural passion into this world by becoming a Nutrition, Health and Wellness Coach. I’ve seen first hand the value and importance of bringing health and balance into body and mind. I get a huge sense of satisfaction seeing clients flourish and making positive changes to their own lives and now, working with Suzanne I am so excited to be bringing this positive message out to a wider audience.
