NUTRITIONIST FROM AUCKLAND, NEW ZEALAND, WORKING WITH NEW MOTHERS
Jillian receives £500 for her video: “What makes an ideal pregnancy?
Too often, the burden for ensuring the future health of a child falls upon the mother when, in reality, there are many environmental factors and structural barriers that influence early development.
Women feel a lot of pressure to get things “right”, and my aim for this video is to reduce some of that stress (and elevated cortisol!) by showing that a healthy pregnancy is not always that simple.
I encourage women to look after their own mental health by accepting that the “perfect mother” ideal is unattainable and there are always trade-offs to be made.
AND CONGRATULATIONS TO OUR RUNNERS-UP
