CAN YOU RELATE TO ANY OF THESE QUESTIONS?
HOW ABOUT ANY OF THESE QUESTIONS?
Let's face it....pregnancy isn't a walk in the park, even before the scary, unwelcome surprise of a GD diagnosis.
Replace panic with knowledge!
HI, I'M CRISTINA! I was a professional recipe developer for more than a decade. (My work appeared in the publications below, among others.) I'm also a mom who had gestational diabetes. Now, I guide women through their GD journeys (and beyond) with recipes, videos, fact sheets, researched-for-you resources, and more.
If you’re like me, you’ve googled everything from “How do I use a glucose meter!?” to “Does pricking my finger hurt?” When I searched, I found plenty of broad-stokes medical websites, but found NO resources written from the perspective of someone who’d actually experienced GD themselves.
After months of trial and error—the easiest way to prick my finger, the best way to record my numbers, how not to waste test strips—I set about creating a resource that combines research and science with the personal tone and experience of someone who’s walked in your shoes. I combined all the information I wish someone had offered me.
"CRISTINA MADE THIS JOURNEY SO MUCH EASIER FOR ME!"
"When I was first diagnosed with GD, I felt overwhelmed and didn't even know where to start or what to eat. Cristina made this journey so much easier for me! Not only she helped me understand the finger poking process but she gave me tons of useful tips and guidance that made GD feel such a breeze! Her recipes were amazing! I recommend Cristina 100%."
Replace the Panic. Empower yourself with knowledge. Feel Calm and Confident.
