The Prenatal Dietitian: An Interview With Kristin Brown

Posted on in Uncategorized by Dr. Marie Battaglia

I fell in love with Kristin immediately after finding her on Instagram. I was totally like, “I need to meet this girl, we need to be friends!” 

We seemed to share the same health and family values, and I couldn’t help but “love” and comment on every one of her posts. After finally meeting in person, it solidified our IG bond. haha. 

I was super excited to interview her on the show and even the guys learned a whole bunch and had a great time, so don’t shy away from listening if “prenatal nutrition” isn’t your thing… it was really about so much more than that. 

Although we set out to talk about nutrition, our conversation lead us down some totally different (but related!) roads. 

Kristin is super passionate about removing toxins from your environment that are derived from cleaning products, personal care products, plastics, and even receipts. Whether you are trying to get pregnant, pregnant or non-pregnant, adult or child or baby, this matters! And not many people are talking about it! (By the way, her household product swap guide can be downloaded on her blog!)

Talk about an awesome instagram page, Kristin has a wicked social media presence. Her posts are filled with evidence based nutrition information tailored to women in the phases of fertility and pregnancy. BUT that doesn’t mean that you can’t benefit from her educational posts if this is not you. Like Dr. Graham mentions in the episode, he follows Kristin on IG and absorbs lots of valuable, beautifully packaged information from her when it comes to nutrition, and overall health and wellness.
