if you are pouring from an empty cup, you are no good for anyone.
I got basic blood pathology done through my GP and I prescribed myself supplements I needed to replete myself again after having kids.
I created a nutrition plan that allowed me to eat the same way as my family and enjoy our meal times together
Found consistency. Some days it is a 50% effort, others days an 80% effort & that's ok!
I knew that Even amongst the chaos of life & motherhood it is possible to live a healthy life & feel well. I finally:
I can now honestly say that after having 3 kids, under 3 years old (crazy I know) I actually have a great amount of energy for the most part. I think I may even feel healthier than I did pre kids. I finally feel like I have my body back, and I don’t mean in the way I look. I mean in the way I feel. My kids are my motivation. They watch me move my body in a way that feels good. They watch me nourish myself and the best part is they copy my healthy behaviours.
This my Mumma, is what I want to teach you.
It's a common misconception that we will feel terrible after having children. Of course there will be times where we do. But this does not have to be your normal.
No matter what stage of your journey you are in, we are here to help you. It is possible to feel well. To feel nourished. To ditch the diets and raise your children knowing the importance of how to nourish themselves.
At Freedom Wellness we truly believe that this all starts with your preconception & pregnancy journey. How you nourish yourself during these phases, will play into how you feel going into, what will be the most important work you ever do... Motherhood.
You've got this Mumma. Grab my hand and let's do it together!
Right now... feeling like I am back in my own body after my pregnancies. I am pain free, healthy & happy.

“Having Shelley work with me during pregnancy to prevent ulcerative colitis flares ups has been a game changer which has relieved a lot of stress & anxiety. Wish I had her with my last pregnancy, I would have avoided a lot of uncomfortable medical intervention. She has worked wonders on my almost 2yo’s eczema. Can’t recommend enough!”
“I’ve loved working with Shelley, she is extremely thorough and generous in her experience and knowledge. Feel very supported by her and my health and wellbeing has most definitely improved since seeing her. Highly recommend her services.”
“Shelley is absolutely incredible- she guided me through my first pregnancy, with genuine care and made my first trimester so much more comfortable! She is a wealth of knowledge and creates practical and achievable plans for her clients.. Shelley is now helping me prep for my second pregnancy, and has helped heal my gut/ boosted my iron and energy levels!
I am so grateful for her warm caring approach, I can’t recommend her highly enough!”
“I absolutely loved my session with Shelley. I feel like I have a pretty good handle on my nutrition and health needs, but being pregnant and breastfeeding, I wanted to double check I was on the right track since there are two babies depending on me. Shelley gave me so much information and made me feel much more confident in mine and my families health moving forward. She has so much knowledge and has made me feel really confident and supported about my health in this pregnancy. It felt so nice to have a healthcare provider that actually wanted to dive deep, listen to me and cover so many areas of my health. I’m so looking forward to continuing to work with her through pregnancy and postpartum (and have already recommended her to another friend and my own mother!).”
