Traditions for Mothers



Monday, September 23rd  /  6:00 to 7:30PM


Ellwood’s Community Classroom


Lauren McCorey

Lauren is a Richmond native who recently gave birth to her first son in December.  She has worked closely with local farms, midwives, pediatricians, dietitians, the Weston A. Price Richmond Chapter, as well as Nourishing Traditions to help her navigate the complicated decisions that face women today from pregnancy to first foods to overall more proactive, healthier lifestyle choices.  Her passion is helping others develop their own improved ways of living and wants to share with moms some information to help them make more informed decisions.  Lauren recently graduated with her Master’s degree in Sport Leadership from VCU, works as a swim coach for NOVA of Virginia Aquatics, and is a birth/postpartum doula.


No other culture is as thoughtless about preparation for pregnancy and babies as our own.  This class hopes to help inform pregnant women, moms and moms-to-be on special nutrient-dense foods, their timing and preparation during pregnancy, lactation and child growth.
