A Mother’s Instinct, with Laura Milano

Your life changes when you have children, but just how much? This week’s episode features Laura Milano, a half-spanish half-Italian mum of two, who went from a career in marketing to becoming a naturopathic coach.

Laura tells us about how her life has changed since becoming a mother. Her career and purpose in life has shifted thanks to the struggles she faced dealing with her postpartum self after her first born, and then battling with the health system to understand and improve her second child’s health condition.

Here is a beautiful example of how something that was labelled as ‘’bad luck’’ then ended up being a blessing in disguise. What I loved most about this conversation is the number of times she followed her instinct, and just fought and figured out a way to make her children’s life better, and consequently her own life better.

Laura now supports people’s health and wellbeing through nutrition and coaching helping them to identify the cause of their issues and taking control over their own health to make changes that will last for life.

Listen in to hear Laura explain what it’s like to be a naturopathic coach, why it’s different than just giving different diets to people. Laura also gives us some practical tips on what works when you’re feeling tired and low on energy (yes, we talk about coffee and cake in this episode!).

Laura is also going to be hosting the first workshop in my brand new Calm & Confident Yoga Membership, where she’ll be deep diving into Holistic Nutrition during Pregnancy. Join us on 15th December to learn about this!
