Paulien’s experience story – Pregnancy wish

Ervaringen en verhalen

Paulien came to me at the end of last year. Initially for help with losing weight. The underlying desire to lose weight was to increase the chance of pregnancy, but unfortunately this did not happen ‘by itself’.

In my advice, I have therefore also taken into account nutrition that contributes to pregnancy, because there is more to it than a healthy egg and (how do you get) a top-fit ​​seed! Ultimately with a beautiful result, read Paulien’s story below.

December 2022:

In December I was thinking about what I wanted to do with my body. I wanted to lose weight and we wanted to have children, but unfortunately that did not come naturally for us. Then I searched around on the internet and came across Nutrition Coach Karen Alferink. I thought that’s easy, pretty close, I’ll make an appointment there.

January 2023:

Once I made an appointment, my first impression was good. There was an immediate click. A spontaneous girl and I was well received. We discussed my wishes that I would like to lose weight because I also want to have children. It’s unbelievable what Karen knows about that. It’s not just nutrition that she can help you with! But just the whole human body. You will be amazed at what you learn about the body. And which vitamins and minerals are needed to get everything back in order. We opted to take a hormone test and have blood taken to see if everything is in order.

March 2023:

We received the results in March and it turned out that my thyroid gland is not working optimally and that my hormone (progesterone) was a bit on the low side.

What are we going to do about it?

Well, of course Karen has her answers ready for that. We sat down together and discussed what kind of supplements I can take for this. By eating healthy and taking these supplements, your body will change completely. You notice that you simply fell short on that part.

April 2023:

I started taking the right supplements in April and also started taking progesterone cream. After all, we also had a desire to have children and the research showed that I was a little short of that. By determining your cycle and applying the cream every day (a pea a day), you hope that you might get results. Because of course it remains a miracle if you are allowed and able to have a child.

May 2023:

Miracles are not yet out of the world.

Karen helped me so much with the nutrition, supplements and things I needed. That a positive pregnancy resulted! It’s all so wonderful. Because of all her good advice, we are so proud that we succeeded. Karen is someone who is always there for you. Really super nice. She is always accommodating with you.

Karen is willing to help you as best as possible so that you can avoid possible complications. I am now 13 weeks pregnant and everything is still going very well. You couldn’t be a happier person.

Do you want this too? Don’t hesitate to make an appointment with Karen. You’ll be amazed at what she can do for you. Not only nutrition, but she can do much more for you.

Lots of love, Paulien Thijen.

On January 20, 2024, Paulien and Sjon became proud parents of a beautiful, healthy daughter.
I really do my best to remain professional, but tears of joy, gratitude and happiness come to my eyes when I received the first birth announcement as a therapist. I’m only human…luckily! Lfs, Karen
