Congrats Lindsay!!  Glad all is going well.

Nikita, it is wonderful to be vegan while expecting, sooo many benefits.  I started when I was 4 months along with my baby, best pregnancy yet with the least amount of "problems".  There was very little detox for me and it would be better when baby's still inside rather than when he's out.  Babies heal incredibly fast in the womb, so now would be the best time.  I really wish I had been vegan with all my other pregnancies, would have saved many aches and pains.  

All the best to you both!

Hi everybody, just an update... 3 weeks ago I gave birth naturally (and easily) to a healthy baby girl, isabelle, weighing 7 pounds 15 ounces. She has been wonderful, very easy to settle and sleeping through most nights. I'm very careful with my diet as I'm breast feeding and find my mostly raw vegan diet suits her perfectly. The few times I've cheated has resulted in giving her tummy aches and blemishes which proves to me that a healthy vegan diet is the way to go.

Help! I want to dive into the 80-10-10 diet, but would it be safe to start while 25 weeks pregnant? will I go into detox and hurt my baby?

Hi, I got pregnant while eating only fruit for health reasons, did not expect to get pregnant, where told that I couldn't conceive by doctors after trying for 10 years. This is my fruity baby! I really believe that fruit made all the difference! Currently B-feeding and eating vegan.

Hello all...Zoe was born 5 days early (none of the others were early) on Tuesday the 11th at 11p.m. after 26 MINUTES of labor!  Nearly painfree...just crampy like menstrual cramps and in 3 painless pushes she was in my hand!  Hubby was a little late running across the house, it was about as autonomous as I will probably every be!  We're all doing great and still in shock at how fast labor was!  HCLF Vegan is the best way to go for an awesome pregnancy, labor and delivery!

Hello everyone. I'm about 7-8 weeks along with my third bubba, and this one really wants me to go all the way HCRV. I still have cooked vegan meals most evenings, but am finding them completely unsatisfying. Craving watermelon at the moment, and can't wait for mango season! I had bloods done recently and discovered my calcium and fat levels are a little low, so I am eating more oranges and OJ for calcium, but really not feeling like any fats other than a bit of avocado here and there. Does anyone else worry about micronutrients?  I should mention I am also breastfeeding bub #2 and that looks like it will continue for a long while yet.

Hi e'erbody,

New to this group. Though I'm not preg or breastfeeding at the moment, I am a doula. So I'm interested in this group not only as a future mother, but also professionally. I offer full spectrum, birth and postpartum support so I have a pretty wide range of knowledge of before, during and after baby is born. (Also abortion, hysterectomy, and general vagina support)

So I guess I'm offering my small wealth of knowledge in this area since there seems to be quite a few questions here. Feel free to message me if you don't want it public. I'll try to get back to you as soon as I can.

Much love,

AP

P.S. Anyone living in the NYC area? Holla!

I'm going to be introducing solids to my baby soon. Anyone have suggestions for first fruits? Is Mango too sugary? I've already let her suck on a mango once and she went bonkers for it and started crying immediately when I took it away. I think with my other two kids I started with banana, avocado and steamed veggies. I am not going to do any cooked food this time. Thanks for any suggestions!

Hi raw mama goddesses!

Anyone pregnant at the moment in the South East Queensland Area? I live on north Stradbroke Island with my partner and 5yr old and we have been high carb raw vegan for nearly 5 years. Love to connect with some others on this journey. Im 8 weeks and feeling good. Although ive slipped in a few potatoes here and there ;) Bliss and blueberries xo Kath

Going to Thailand in a couple of months with my baby, he'll be 6 months old by then.  Does anyone know if it's acceptable to breastfeed in public?  I'm very discreet, but still, don't want to offend anyone...
