What Is a Health Coach?

The short answer is that as a health coach, I am here to empower you to make changes and meet your health and wellness goals.

I’m Margaret, I’m a health coach and a new mom. Through my journey into motherhood I have experienced how transformative this time is. Our bodies, minds, and hearts are in constant transition through this journey of becoming a mother.  This time of change and transition is HARD. It can be easy to allow your needs as a mom, woman, and human to take a back seat.  However, self-care is paramount for women, especially during pregnancy and postpartum. Self-care allows us to truly know and be in tune with who we are and what we need.  It allows us to approach life from a space that is more balanced, and in turn provide the best care for our families.  This is why I’m so passionate about helping moms during this transformational period.   

A health coach is on your side to offer guidance, support, and accountability on your journey of personal growth and development.  A coach will not tell you what to do or how to meet your goals, but rather will work with you to find solutions that are right for you in your life.  

During a coaching program we will look at your life holistically, touching on areas of diet, exercise, relationships, career, and spirituality – to name a few.  These sessions are tailored just for you and are all about what YOU need.  Some examples of specific topics that could be addressed include:

  • - Diet & nutrition
  • - Exercise and movement routines, including to return to activity postpartum
  • - Stress Management
  • - Self-Care
  • - Fears surrounding life changes (such as pregnancy, labor and birth, and transitioning to parenthood)
  • - Body image and body changes
  • - Work/Life Balance
  •   And More

Programs can be 100% customized to meet your needs.  I offer FREE introductory sessions.  This is a 45-minute session dedicated to getting to know you and learning about your individual goals.  After we determine what your specific needs are we will create a program just for you.  

If you have further questions feel free to contact me at coach@margaretachu.com,  or you may schedule an introductory session through Blooma’s Wellness page.
