Frequently Asked Questions:

Who is this program for?

Women currently pregnant, women planning to start a family, and moms of littles aged 0-4 years who...

🪴 are discovering or rediscovering Intuitive Eating;

🪴 want support from a like-minded mom group + dietitian;

🪴 want to stop dieting forever, but don't know how;

🪴 are overly worried about the healthiness of foods; and/or

🪴 want to make peace with their food, mind, and body to be a good role model for their little ones.

What if my kids are 5+ years old? Can I still join?

This program is set for those in the prenatal-to-postpartum season of life so that participants are in a similar phase of motherhood and their kids are meeting similar developmental milestones around eating.

For moms of older children (and anyone else), our group Intuitive Eating for Beginners or Family Nutrition Counseling might be a better fit for your needs.

I'm very intrigued! How does it work?

This group program will run in seven 60-minute sessions, over the course of 12 weeks. You'll receive education, affirmation, journal prompts, reflection questions, socialization, meal planning guidance, recipe ideas, and more, all while being in a moderated non-diet space with a dietitian (a mom-to-be herself!) and your new mom friends. You'll have access to a chat through What's App to keep in touch between sessions. You'll be able to share wins and talk through challenges with other blossoming intuitive eaters.

Cool, so what materials come with the program?

You will receive many resources to guide us through this  journey, which you will utilize over the course of our time together and beyond.

1. Gentle Nutrition for the basics of intuitive eating and gentle nutrition

2. Empower Your Plate for 12 weeks of food planning and preparation

3. Intuitive Eating for Every Day for affirmations and mindful inspiration

Why should I join this program over others that are similar? 

This program is set up to provide moms and moms-to-be with the basics of Intuitive Eating plus how to use gentle nutrition to plan meals to feed yourself and your family.  You will be guided by Cristina Luibil, Certified Intuitive Eating Counselor and Registered Dietitian, who has also worked in prenatal, infant, and child feeding and nutrition for over 12 years.

Cool! Is there anything else I should expect?

We expect all program participants to be under the routine care of a physician.

A mental health provider, such as a therapist or counselor, is also a beneficial addition to a health care team. We encourage program participants to have an open mind if they feel they want or need to talk with mental health professional. 

NOTE: if you are currently suffering from and/or are in early recovery from an eating disorder, please consult with your treatment team (therapist, RD, MD) before joining, as participants may be reflecting on their own lived experience during the group sessions.

Got it! So, if I join, does that mean I can talk to Cristina about personalized nutrition issues?

No, joining Gentle Nutrition for Moms and Moms-to-be only means that you are joining this group program. It does not mean you have an individualized nutrition counseling contract with Aterra Nutrition or Cristina Luibil. Complete details are outlined in the Terms of Use.

What I love about Intuitive Eating is how adaptable it is. Once you learn and can apply it, you can take what you need in the moment and leave the rest. It is not a set of rules.
I feel confident with my toolbox of skills to reject diet culture and treat myself kindly when it comes to my food and body relationship.
