Prenatal care is important from before conception through the weeks following delivery. During pregnancy, many women become more aware of their own bodies and the need to take care of themselves is often heightened. This awareness can lead to healthier food choices for the whole family. However women who don’t take good care of themselves and their unborn babies during pregnancy are more likely to experience complications during pregnancy and delivery and can often be avoided through better nutrition and exercise.
Both Dr. Sears, and exercise physiologist Sean Foy together have 10 children which is why they created interactive workshops to help pregnant and nursing women and their families embrace four key areas of health: Lifestyle, Exercise, Attitude, and Nutrition. Dr. Sears’ L.E.A.N. workshops are simple and easy for participants to understand, from expectant and nursing moms, to parents and their children.
Dr. Sears’ L.E.A.N. Expectations is offered as three separate workshops with topics including preparing for pregnancy, eating well, prenatal exercise, and self-care–both during pregnancy and postpartum. The information in these workshops is designed for women who are considering becoming pregnant through the first few months following delivery.
This classfocuses on the lifestyle, exercise and attitude choices vital for a healthy pregnancy and covers what to avoid during pregnancy and what expectant mothers should start doing to prepare their body for a healthy birth. In addition, expectant mothers will learn about the importance of attitude (good mental health) throughout the pregnancy and strategies for coping with stress. The practical strategies taught during this class will assist expectant mothers throughout their pregnancy, and even beyond, as they create and maintain a healthy, satisfying lifestyle.
This class teaches how to incorporate healthy eating into everyday life, not only while pregnant, but also throughout the years ahead. Expectant mothers will learn what foods and nutrients they need to eat more of during pregnancy and while nursing. They will also learn what foods to avoid to feel better physically and provide their baby with all the nutrients needed for safe, complete development.
This class focuses on how to live a L.E.A.N. Lifestyle after the baby is born. Mothers will learn how to bond with their baby and how to parent with less tension and more ease. They will also learn about the importance of good nutrition and exercise in the months after giving birth, and about the need for intentional self-care as they grow into motherhood.
These classes are perfect for teaching at hospitals, doctors offices, WIC Programs, Mom’s groups, early Head Start programs and more!

“I wish I would have had access to these classes when I was pregnant. The fun, supportive atmosphere and a chance to connect with other expecting moms would have had a dramatic impact on improving my pregnancy!” – Lynette, mother of two.
