Hello, I’m Iona! I am a certified Eco-Maternity Consultant and Greenproofer.
Each and every day, we are exposed to hundreds of chemicals – through the food we eat, to the air we breathe, and the products we put on our skin. These chemicals are often toxic and are linked to illnesses such as:
- Allergies and asthma
- Developmental disabilities
- Birth defects
- Infertility issues and reproductive disorders
It’s overwhelming just thinking about it. And with all of the information, opinions, and options out there, it’s hard to know what we should focus on to protect our families and ourselves. To top it off, we lead hectic lives! So despite our best intentions to make positive changes, it’s often just easier to keep doing what we’re doing. That’s where A Healthy Beginning comes in! Let me show you how simple, small changes can add up to a big impact!
I coach and support people through one-on-one consultations, workshops, and online mentoring sessions to help them find simple, effective and affordable customized solutions that will create a greener and healthier future for their family. I also make natural, organic home and body care products for people want to make the switch but don’t have the time to make their own. In addition, I am a writer, and I share many of my tips and resources on this website, and through my monthly e-newsletter and social media.
Ways I Can Help You:
- Assess your home and/or workplace and create a personalized guide to help you reduce your exposure to toxins
- Teach you what to look for in body care and other household products
- Coach and support you on food and nutrition
- Support you in having a healthier and greener pregnancy, and postpartum and newborn care
