NEW AT UIRC: HEALTH COACHING!
Healthy living is not a "one size fits all." Find your fit with us.
Welcome to our new health coaching sessions with Sara Lambert- INHC! We are thrilled to bring this service to our community and help address overall wellbeing in relation to infertility. Whether or not you have worked with a Health Coach before, we are here to support you in achieving your goals!
Meet Your Coach:
Sara Lambert is a Certified Integrative Nutritional Health Coach who takes a holistic approach to health. She looks at the whole person and takes into account food, sleep, stress, movement and most importantly, what brings you joy.
As her client, you are in the driver’s seat. With support from her, you will decide what you want to focus on and then set achievable goals so that you will feel successful. She provides support and accountability to help you achieve your goals.
As your coach, here are some ways in which I can support you:
Prepare your body for conception and support you as you go through infertility treatments by reducing inflammation and nourishing your body with the correct nutrients to help support a healthy pregnancy
Utilize stress reducing techniques to help support your emotional health
Help you prioritize and create a restful and healing sleep routine
Incorporate gentle movement into your daily routine
Work on a gratitude practice to help you move through the difficult journey of infertility
Anything else you feel would be helpful in your infertility journey
I have never worked on my health before. Is this program for me? Yes! One of the many benefits of health coaching is I meet you exactly where you are. We will set small attainable goals and help you feel successful at your own pace. Your health coaching sessions will be a judgment free, safe space and everything we talk about in a session is confidential
Will you create a meal plan for me? No. My whole goal as your health coach is to get you to the point where you don’t need me anymore. I will teach you how to create your own meal plan so that you feel confident to do it on your own once we are done working together. This is not a detox or a 21 day challenge. We will create a plan that will be sustainable for you to implement for the rest of your life.
Do you diagnose or do any testing? I am not a nutritionist or a doctor so I cannot diagnose or conduct any testing. If appropriate, I can work alongside your health care professional and help you implement any lifestyle changes that they might suggest.
Will I lose weight? This program is not intended for weight loss. The goal is to work on supporting and preparing your body for a successful and healthy pregnancy. However, If nutrition is one of your goals, most clients will see some weight loss benefits as we tackle reducing refined sugar, processed foods, soda etc.
Can you recommend supplements? Because I am not a nutritionist, recommending supplements is out of my scope of practice. I can however educate you on what is available and you can then work with your health care provider on if a specific supplement is right for you.
What will the monthly group sessions look like? Once a month, we will gather on a Zoom call to talk about ideas, frustrations and celebrate your wins with other members of our coaching community. This is entirely optional but it is a great way to learn from and feel supported by others who may be going through a similar journey.
Why is the program 3 months long? It takes time to build healthy habits that are sustainable for life. I want to give you the time and space to create a plan that is tailored to your specific body and life. You need time to practice and implement what you are working on, learn how to jump back on the wagon when you fall off (because you will!), and to see and celebrate success (because you will!). I will be there every step of the way to hold you accountable and cheer you on.
What if I want to continue seeing you after the 12 weeks are done? We are able to extend your program! We will have an evaluation in the last week to determine what your updated needs are, adjust or add new goals, and set a new time frame for your individual coaching program.
