What Happened During My Fruitarian Vegan Pregnancy (With Photos)

What Happened During My Fruitarian Vegan Pregnancy (With Photos)

What happens to you if you’re a vegan and go through a vegan pregnancy?

The 40 weeks of pregnancy brings along with it profound changes in the body.

Most women find themselves experiencing uncomfortable symptoms, and just some of them include:

• Swelling

• Bloating

• Morning sickness

• Heavy weight gain

• Constipation

• Stretch marks

• Back ache, etc.

My raw food vegan pregnancy

Prior to my vegan pregnancy, I was already following a high-carbohydrate/fruit-based raw vegan diet for 4 years. This means that I lived on a diet of fruits, vegetables and some nuts and seeds.

This diet has helped me heal my body and overcome fertility issues without taking any drugs.

Throughout my whole pregnancy, I stayed on a fruit-based and raw based vegan diet and led a very healthy and fit lifestyle. I ate raw foods on most days, and also added some occasional cooked vegetables to my mostly raw vegan menu.

How has this changed the flow of my pregnancy?

Well, my seemingly “protein deficient” raw vegan diet (which is a myth, of course) has allowed me to experience a completely different pregnancy.

No swelling, morning sickness, back ache, unhealthy weight gain, stretch marks and bloating was experienced during my raw-based, vegan pregnancy.

I engaged in a lot of exercise during my pregnancy, which included cycling and running up to 38 weeks, swimming up to the date I delivered my baby, weight lifting, yoga, pilates and aerobics.

So watch this video to discover more detail about my raw food diet pregnancy, as well as see my photos at different stages of my unique journey.

    hi there

  •   divinemissm28  |   

    How very wonderful, Yulia!

  •   Habitat for Herbivores  |   

    You look great! Thank you for sharing! I would love to know more about your experience with the natural birth itself. I am hoping in a couple of years to have a vegan, natural pregnancy and any insight you can share would be great! Also, how much you were eating in a typical day throughout your pregnancy to make sure you got enough nutrients…did you track what you ate or just ate until you felt full?

  •   neptuniannymph  |   

    It’s clear that you didn’t want a baby, why can’t you just be honest? You seem so uncomfortable with the whole experience. “Fulfilling your evolutionary mission on planet earth”, that’s a way to put it…

  •   Naomi Mordi  |   

    Thanks for sharing. I wonder what you have to say about pain during delivery.

    hello, Julia! are you breastfeeding?

  •   Lesley SirensWaters  |   

    You look amazing! Do you plan on raising your daughter fruitarian so early in this stage?

  •   Owen fox  |   

    Pretty awesome whats possible on what believe is our natural inherited physiological diet, – fruits primilary and hugely. Crazy positive stories of fitness, endurance, health, recovery and vitality, as well as being in brilliant physical shape!… Did u know vegan pregnancies tend to be shorter and easier, and raw vegan pregnancies I’ve heard are basically effortless and much faster labor, with weight loss afterbirth much faster and body going back to normal way without all stretch marks and unlosable flab etc. Either did I a year ago….

  •   Happyland  |   

    Awesome! Congrats on the little one. Being a parent is a true blessing.

  •   Amanda Carlson  |   

    I love this!! You’re beautiful by the way! question, you said you did not know you were pregnant for the first 5 months. I’ve experienced the loss my period since going vegan and changing my diet to a mostly raw, whole foods. ive heard this is common in many vegan women, especially raw vegans. did you experience this as well? since you said you didnt even know you were pregnant, i am assuming you did not bleed monthly? because my Gynocologist cannot explain to me why i am not menstruating. all my hormones and glandular functions are completely normal, and structurally, everything is fine and functional as well.

  •   Greenmama's Garden  |   

    I wish I had this information before I had my kids! Congrats to you. How are your iron levels doing? Also, I have known several women who have gone through what you went through as far as only testing positive for pregnancy into the 2nd trimester, and they were not raw vegans.

  •   Karolina Cutler  |   

    Hi thanks for the videos, I find them inspiring. Very reassuring and unsurprising to see you can eat lfrv and have such a healthy pregnancy. I’m pregnant with my 2nd child and planning to stick with my low fat mainly raw diet. Last time I was eating a standard diet and had bad nausea and vomiting. So far im feeling good, but its early days. A few questions: did you take any supplements or change anything about your diet once you found out? How much fat do you eat in an average week (it seems to me you eat a lot of avocados- more fat than 80-10-10 recommends?), and how much leafy greens did you eat (and how important do you think greens are for pregnancy?). One more: did you have any cooked food cravings? Thanks and congratulations!

  •   Lorra Fae  |   

    sooo stunning 🙂

  •   Scarlett Lindner  |   

    You are truly an inspiration yulia! How many extra calories did you have to consume while pregnant, if any? Also I know you said you had a natural birth. Can you explain a little bit more on your experience with that? Thanks yulia!

  •   TheStreeser1  |   

    who cares ?

  •   Rain Florence  |   

    Hi great video. I would like to know if your period stopped while you were pregnant? Also what birth control did you use during your 4 years raw? Was your labor painful?

  •   Rain Florence  |   

    Also did you have a doctor and did you do ultrasound?

  •   Sarah Stapleton  |   

    Hello, I really enjoy your videos. I would like to what supplements you took while pregnant? Did you eat green vegetables in addition to fruit?

  •   Tallie Allen  |   

    Thank you for sharing!Wow. So inspiring :)Did you do any gardening?I did not because of the risk of toxoplasmosis. Cats or other animals can carry that and poop in the garden. Toxoplasmosis can cause birth defects especially in first trimester. At least that’s what I’ve read. What are your thoughts on gardening during pregnancy?

  •   Christina Haftman  |   

    Are you in touch with Leija?

  •   sanne.und.die.jungs  |   

    Hey Yulia, thank you for sharing your experiences of your pregnancy and congratulations of course for delivering your first child. I wonder whether switching from a SAD or a high fat cooked vegan diet to lfrv during pregnancy or breast feeding period is possible? I would be concerned of the detox effects that might have and that could be passed on to the baby. What are your thoughts on that? Thank you for taking the time.

  •   Marcella Smith  |   

    Have you had any post-delivery lab work? I think it is awesome that you were a vegan thru pregnancy and raw, what a healthy normal human way to have a child!! 🙂

  •   JediMindTrikkz  |   

    4 month pregnancy lmao… congratulations to you two well done!!

  •   Katie Prebble  |   

    At 8:17 that is such a magical photo 🙂

  •   Brianna Lee  |   

    You talk about having to make life changes and adjustments for Elaina (sorry if my spelling is incorrect); what are these adjustments? And how are you able to afford feeding your whole family fullyraw? Thanks!

  •   FitterFasterUK  |   

    Look very good for it, well done 🙂

  •   ladyplantenergy  |   

    Yulia you say that you were 20 weeks before you found out that you were pregnant did you not feel the baby move? I’ve had 4 girls and I only had small babies 5lb my smallest and 6lb 8oz my largest but I felt them move by 14 weeks. I was thin too.I know larger ladies can be pregnant and not know they are pregnant, I’m only assuming that it is the fat that they didnt know they were they were pregnant and thought they had back ache or wind.

  •   IWillStabYou WithAFork  |   

    if your planning to adopt a child what would you feed it since you don’t have breast milk?

  •   sofiacpinto  |   

    I would like to congratulate you for giving the world such a precious life 🙂 My question to you is: what was the most difficult part of the whole process? Even though I’m way too young to start worrying about that, the child-birth really scares me. I know that women have been delivering babies without any drugs for thousands of years but having the chance to have it done easier I’m not sure if I would do it the natural way. Also, I would like to know how was your recovery? Wish you the best of luck for you and your family and hope you all know that you are an inspiration to me 🙂

  •   lowfat rawvegan  |   

    You are so blessed! Well done! Great video. I do not have any questions, just wanted to congratulate you both again!!! We have 5 children and feel so blessed that I too could deliver all 5 of them naturally. Our 5th child I was pregnant with while transitioning to the raw lifestyle and it went fantastic! I was 41 years old!!! My weight literally melted off me in weeks like your situation and it was with him that I had zero problems breastfeeding. The other 4, I always had clogged milk ducts or something happen but when I was breastfeeding a baby on the raw lifestyle it was amazing!!! He also breastfed the longest of all of them. Past 2 yrs oldPeace & Raw Health,Elizabeth

  •   Meredith Billington  |   

    My mom’s pregnancy with me was not visible until she was about to give birth. My mom had toxemia and lost weight. I ended up being born via C-Section because mom, after 8 or so hours, couldn’t birth me naturally. My sister was the same, but by appointment. Our Mom also had Epilepsy, though she hadn’t had a seizure in almost 10 years or so.

  •   Ilze Fridrihsone  |   

    How much weight do You gain true Your pregnancy?

  •   Veggie V  |   

    How old are you? Curious if you are older and had a later-in-life child.

  •   McPega  |   

    Congrats 🙂 Whaqt is your view on vaccination?

  •   Sarah R  |   

    Thanks so much for the video! I have a question unrelated to your pregnancy, but I would really like your opinion when you get a chance. There seem to be a lot of individuals within both the high and low carbohydrate diet camps saying that fructose is bad for you – that it will raise your triglycerides and uric acid levels as well as potentially cause fatty liver disease because it is metabolized differently than glucose. I have read info saying to limit fructose intake to <75g per day or even <25g per day. When following a low fat raw vegan diet with most of our calories coming from fruit we probably get more than this amount and I am not sure whether I should be worried about this. Any thoughts?

  •   sleepyfish  |   

    Yulia, you are amazing! thank you for sharing your story so candidly. do you know why you tested false so many times? I’m wishing you the best in your new journey 🙂

  •   Gayle J. Lang  |   

    Congrats to you and Paul!

  •   Brandi Franzman  |   

    Hi, there. Thanks so much for all of the wonderful information you and Paul share! I am curious how long your labor was. I keep hearing about short labors from women on raw food diets and wonder if you had the same experience. Thanks again for your inspiring videos, etc.!

  •   Berta Mestres  |   

    Thanks for sharing! Is your daughter also a fully raw vegan as you two? Do you feed her more fats?

  •   savvybee19  |   

    Thank you for sharing and Happy Mother’s Day!

  •   Misiaq  |   

    Hi, First I wanted to share that my pregnancy test also didn’t show for up to 2 months into the pregnancy. It was clearly a test brand issue – I bought two tests and one of them came positive… I sort of knew I am pregnant when I dreamed of dipping my banana in chili sauce 😀 Haven’t felt the kicking also until 18th week, and I recognized kicking only because I knew I was pregnant and waiting for it. I am in 20th week and now the kicks are more natural. This Tuesday I am going for my ultrasound no 2 (excited to see if everythign is right with the baby). The question from me is about iodine and B12. I was informed that pregnant women should supplement iodine on this lifestyle. The issue presented by nutritionists suggests that too little iodine can damage brain development and too much of a dose can cause goitris or cancer in children, so for example a sea weed which is a good source in normal case for vegans is not advised for pregnant females. I have also found an information that B12 for baby is absorbed from freshly consumed sources, not from existing reserves in female body. And since I live in the cold region, D vitamin is suggested to be supplemented. Have you been supplementing the two (I am assuming D is not an issue when you spend so much time out) and how? I have found a pill compiling both but it also has a bit more of other B vitamins which make me feel like overdosed on energy drink, so obviously more natural sources would be of interest to me.

  •   Ines Machado  |   

    what birth control did you use before pregnancy? when pregnant did you felt tired, taking naps on the afternoon? you made any blood exams? how was your labor? much love!

  •   Alejandra  |   

    Hi Yulia, what a beautiful story! I have many many questions i would love you can talk/answered in your coming videos regarding pregnancy and raising raw/vegan/ fruitarians babies:
    1.- Did you have ultrasound scans after you knew about your pregnancy?
    2.- Did you have a lotus birth/water birth? Did you leave the umbilical cord uncut?
    3.- Did you have the help of a Doula to assist you or were just you and Paul in that precious moment?
    4.- Did you take any supplements?
    5.- Will you be practicing un-schooling/homeschooling with baby Elanie?
    6.- Is it the father’s diet/lifestyle as important as the mother involved during pregnancy, and the health of the baby to be?

    Thanks in advanced,
    Alejandra

  •   Alejandra  |   

    Another question Yulia 🙂
    7.- Did you continue to have your menstrual periods during those 5 months?

  •   Anjee Beltowsky  |   

    beautiful story! we want to see the bebe!!

  •   bree doxey  |   

    You are so RAWESOME!! I have 3 babies but have had several health problems since switching 7 weeks ago to fully raw all of my liver and kidney functions have gone back to normal! My question is about fertility we have 3 boys and want one more hopefully a girl. I’ve heard other say there period stops on raw I’m wondering about your experience? Thanks

  •   Jennifer Mistsoftime  |   

    Growing foetuses require all the different sort of fats that nature has given us. Personally I would regard denying a growing foetus a balanced nutrition a very risky business.

  •   Sam E'Joe Show  |   

    Your story is absolutely inspiring. Congrats on your new addition to your family 🙂

  •   Elisabeth  |   

    Oh my goodness! If I saw your video before or when I was pregnant with my
    now 9 months old girl, I’d have more motivation to keep the raw eating
    habbit! My sister is pregnant to give birth in august. She’s eating the
    normal healthy norwegian diet. The attitude is that one may eat anything,
    but have to restrain and hold back from eating to much. This is the normal
    attitude amongst meat-eaters in Norway. Do you have any advice? And con
    gratulations! Kind regards, Elisabeth.

  •   Marina Grubic  |   

    Bless you! Thank you both (the three of you now) for shinning in this world
    and making it a better place. Yulia, you just empowered so many women I
    believe. <3

  •   Melanie Xu  |   

    thank you for sharing this video. If I ever get pregnant, I will be sure to
    continue to eat 801010!

  •   Spazztica Fantazztica  |   

    Wow you look great. Pregnancy RUINED my body (or more so I did by doing it
    wrong) and now me and my partner don’t even sleep in the same bed anymore.
    I won’t let him touch me because I just look so hideous. I have gone all
    saggy and I have stretch marks and separated stomach muscles. I am vegan
    myself and am still breastfeeding my daughter at 18 months. This might
    sound really negative but my body is in such a mess I am just not motivated
    to switch to an even healthier diet. I know it’s supposed to be about more
    than that but still… No one is ever going to see me with my clothes off
    again and I certainly don’t want more kids. I honestly wish I had thought
    about eating low fat before I turned myself into a blob. This is an
    official warning to pregnant women not to eat whole jars of peanut butter.

  •   emilieclarke  |   

    I asked my doctor if I needed to eat animal protein while pregnant and she
    said no. So I’m pretty optimistic about it.

  •   snj prl  |   

    my belly also didn’t show until 5 months into the pregnancy – and i also
    experienced NONE of those bad symptoms others complain about. my all
    natural breech birth only took 6 hours – no tearing, no interventions
    needed. everything was fine. eating raw, following a vegan diet and
    exercising really helped me not only to stay in shape and be prepared for
    the physical work during birth but it also kept me happy and my thinking
    positive. congrats on your pregnancy experience again!

  •   Meserete Uzondu  |   

    Were you seeing your period during that 5 months of not knowing you were
    pregnant?

  •   fruityful day  |

  •   Lina Strindlund  |   

    WOW, this is interesting! 🙂 Great to get a link to info on rawfood for
    kids, because muy sister has a 1 year old girl and I want to give her raw
    smoothies and stuff! 😀 You are so beautiful!

  •   Lina Strindlund  |   

    wow no morning sickness! 😀 maybe I could go through a pregnancy after all
    😉 I have never wanted to give birth, and haven´t , but now I´m on the
    rawfood journey, (not 100% but about 50-70 % ) so…maybe… 🙂

  •   Lina Strindlund  |   

    Q: How was your birth? painful? It´s hard to compare with others, but do
    you think yours was easier? Did you take an painkillers? Meaning the shot
    most women get when giving birth. I´ve heard that the problem most women
    have is that tha baby´s head is too big for the vagina, that our heads used
    to be smaller back in history, and thats why we have so mich problems
    now…?

  •   victoria arnstein  |   

    WOW!!! Congratulations..I had no idea you were pregnant! SO happy for
    you..you look fantastic!!!!

  •   Ivona B  |   

    How about your periods? Have they stopped when you fell pregnant ?

  •   daniellegloveskeanu  |   

    Does raw or vegan cause you to NOT be able to get preggers or is it better
    for trying to get preggers? want to get pregnant and I am just vegan for a
    few weeks now. 🙂

  •   Daphne R  |   

    Congrats! What a blessing! I sometimes get questions in regards to
    breastfeeding on this lifestyle. Please share your experience. How long do
    you plan to breastfeed… I started this life style this February while
    nursing my now 2 year old, that I still nurse. I believe in gentle
    weaning… Our children before the 2 year old all naturally weaned between
    3-4, except for my oldest. The oldest I was forced to abruptly stop because
    in learned I was pregnant while nursing and was threatening to……

  •   Daphne R  |   

    Threatening to miscarry. So I had to stop. But funny thing is I got
    pregnant with the others while nursing, and was able to nurse the entire
    time thru each pregnancy there after. All healthy pregnancies healthy
    children… I just wished I had learned of and been on this lifestyle while
    pregnant with them all. I struggle for my family to eat raw with me.

  •   Cherissa Adams  |   

    How did you not know you were pregnant? were you not having a menstrual
    cycle? Didn’t that alarm you or were you used to not having a menstrual
    cycle from lack of nutrients on the raw vegan lifestyle? CRAZY!!!! (obvi
    you were not having your menstrual cycle) so sad.

  •   Angela Valcarcel  |   

    You look great!

  •   al karg  |   

    hey Yulia, this video would be a good follow up to your “libido” video u &
    yer hubby made last yr (?) or yrs ago, and should be paired up to it on
    YTube page. Just my 2 cents. peace.

  •   Josyn Keith  |   

    o my gosh i love you!! you are so calm and thoughtful..

  •   Punavi Naik  |   

    Amazing and so inspiring ! I am trying to loose weight the natural way too.

  •   Anwar Uhuru  |   

    So with testing the various stages did you go to a Doctor or using a home
    pregnancy test?

  •   Tara Nixon O'Neill  |   

    do you think it is safe to go raw at 4 months pregnant ? I have been raw
    before for 9 months but have been eating cooked vegan foods and not the
    healthiest , i must confess , Im wondering because some say it is bad as it
    causes detox ?

  •   Jessica K.  |   

    Sorry to dissilusion you but even in countries where woman suffer from
    malnutrition and hunger healthy babies are born. This video prooves not
    that being on a raw food diet is healthy for both mother and child, neither
    scientifically nor empirical.

  •   cheers2168  |   

    Congrats to you and your family! ugh I really want to a least try being raw
    vegan. And seeing how you made through your pregnancy just shows me this
    diet really can do great things for someone lol.

  •   Aliki Giakas  |   

    Amazing story!!!!! <3

  •   Nikki Joseph  |   

    Thank u for being such am inspiration!!! Sooo beautiful u are inside and

  •   SolSamantx  |   

    i was so happy to hear what a happy, healthy pregnancy you experienced. It
    is something I want for myself in the future, as a raw vegan also, and this
    has helped relieve any concerns about continuing my lifestyle while
    pregnant. I wish you and your new baby lots of health, love and fruit 😉

  •   rin7434  |   

    Why won’t you stop talking………. you’re just repeating yourself.

    And by the way. When you talk about raising children raw vegan, you risk
    the health of those children. There once was a family in our circle of
    acquaintances that lived like that and did exactly what you promote. The
    result was, that their five year old son had diarrhea up to seven times a
    day, way sickly thin, small for his age and very pale. The youth wellfare
    office of my country almost took him away from his parents and only because
    of that, they started giving him cooked food and some (animal)protein and
    since then he’s fine.
    So rethink this nonsense of raw food for children. Let them eat what’s best
    for their digestion and growth and when they’re old enough, let them decide
    it for themselves.
    I personally don’t think that anyone has the right to decide anything for
    somebody. But in case of health for children, this is pure nonsense.
    No offense, I don’t tell anybody to stop going raw vegan, I find that
    lifestyle interesting. But children? No. There should be a law for this.

  •   Spikesfeet  |   

    I have to strongly disagree to running during the late stages of pregnancy.
    The weight of the fetus already presses down onto your pelvic floor anyway.
    Jogging during your last trimester can actually damage your pelvic floor
    muscles due to the impact of the fetus’ weight coming down during each
    slamming “step”. If you wanna stay active use an elliptical cross trainer.

  •   Nadia iwanek  |   

    will you make your kid raw too?

  •   Patricia Grace Soliman  |   

    Hi! I just wonder if you’re also breastfeeding as I know breastfeeding also
    contributes to regaining prepregnancy weight. Thanks!

    •   Rawsomehealthy  |   

      Yes, of course I am.

  •   Debbles NZ  |   

    You’re really easy to listen to. I’m nearly a month into a raw lifestyle,
    lost nearly 10kgs and wow I have tons of energy, its fantastic. I too have
    fertility problems but blessed to have a son. I want to go raw with my next
    pregnancy. When going raw, is baby getting everything they need? The quick
    question is yes right….babies don’t benefit from rubbish. Please confirm?
    Thank you.

    Hi Yulia,
    Did you spot at all during your first months of pregnancy?
    Thank you in advance, any answer will be helpful.

  •   Rute Alexandra  |   

    i wonder what did you eat while breastfeading your baby?
    Great video

  •   Shamesa Watkins  |   

    Wow, thank you so much for this video! I didn’t know that I was pregnant
    for a few months either. I had no morning sickness, swelling, or anything.
    I did develop a craving for bananas and oranges though. My mom ran track
    and played basketball while she was pregnant with me. She ate a vegan diet
    and she did not find out that she was pregnant with me until months later.
    I am glad that you have revealed how different your pregnancy was. There
    are different pregnancies indeed! I am curious to know what is your view on
    pregnancies that lasts for over a year?

  •   berries apples  |   

    HI, thanks for sharing. did you take any vitamins or nutrional supplements
    well pregnant and do you take them when your not, more specifically b12?

    what about B12? did you take any suplements? It’s huge responsibility…

    i was wondering if you were 5 month into your pregnancy, is that when you
    started to show? also why do you think that you couldn’t find out from the
    test you took previously to the 5 months that you were in fact pregnant?
    thankyou very much for these videos!

    As a parent, I can certainly sympathize with you, I can even go so far as
    to understanding where your coming from. Even going so far as to some what
    agree with you in some areas. However you should be very careful with some
    of the things you say. NO pregnancy is ever the same. I’ve had 3 children
    and know this from first hand experience. You may have been lucky to have
    not known you were pregnant until you were 5 months into your pregnancy
    but.. the things you were doing could have put a lot of strain on your
    unborn child.. this is a proven fact. One that I am to familiar with.
    Though we are not helpless when we are pregnant our babies are, even inside
    of us they are weaker then us, exercising the way you did could have
    affected your baby in a different way apart form being born prematurely, is
    just one example.

    Listening to what you’ve just said may cause harm to some parents.. you
    should have advised in your video. Not taken such a personal opinion on the
    matter, to seek medical advice if the parent is considering your advice.
    Until you’ve had more then one child please don’t all of a sudden become an
    expert. I find it highly offensive as a parent. Just because this pregnancy
    went smoothly for you doesn’t mean the next one will or the one after it…
    Same goes for any other parent out there, just because one pregnancy goes
    well for you doesn’t mean the next ones will. I believe its incredibly
    dangerous to give such advice to people who are pregnant if you are not a
    doctor, I listened to some similar advice before and had 3 miscarriages
    based on that advice…

    I’m not saying this to upset anyone or get under anyone’s skin least of all
    yours, it is your opinion after all but I’d advise that you edit your video
    with a suggestion to seek medical advice first before attempting the same
    path you did.. JUST because it worked for you, doesn’t mean it will work
    for EVERY woman out there who is pregnant… It is one thing to do
    something like this before pregnancy but it is another thing to ignore your
    bodies wants after you are pregnant.

    It’s been shown that vegan men have a 30% lower sperm count, so your
    fertility issues could’ve been his! He was probably shooting blanks! We
    wanted a son, so we had sex doggie-style and it worked! The fetus reacted
    strongly to music, especially the Moody Blues & Led Zeppelin. We named him
    Justin after the Moody’s lead singer, & Justin is a Led Zeppelin fan to
    this day!

    No matter what your lifestyle, if you can’t tell you are pregnant, you must
    not have paid much attention to your body…if you thought you might be
    pregnant, why not visit a doctor that could confirm with ultrasound? I
    knew I was pregnant almost instantly each time, even though I still had my
    period/spotting for one, as well as a negative test. (It is intuition or
    gut instinct). I know all pregnancies are different, but it seems that you
    must not have been in touch with your body if you could not tell until 5
    months, there are so many other ways to tell besides a test or weight
    gain…I have heard that from drug addicts but no one else.

    Do you have any advice for someone who needs cooked warm food to feel

  •   Abeer Almarzouki  |   

    You look pale to me sorry but that’s what I see

  •   Gutierrez Lessanti  |   

    I’m very happy for you. I’ve been told I can’t have a child, infertility,
    etc. I remember the first time I heard it, being a teen, I cried so much.
    Those words have hurt my heart since. I now have had a journey with the
    living God (the God of Israel). I’ve had a poor diet/lifestyle, but similar
    to you I also believed in more that a couple of words from a doctor. I
    believed in my heart, I knew what I had to do. I’m finally eating a more
    than 90% vegan diet. I could write much more, but I just want to THANK YOU
    got uploading/sharing this testimony. I truly believe in what God had
    created (amazing bodies & fruits & vegetables). The world should know this
    as they should of Jesus Christ. I know enemy of our souls is behind all of
    this (always wanting to get rid of/hurt/kill God’s perfect creation).
    Lastly (but definitely not least 😉 I must have you know the truth about
    yoga. It is not of God (it is not safe). The Bible says in 2 Corinthians
    11:14 (KJV): And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel
    of light. You can Google, YouTube this. It’s not safe. I desire the very
    best for you & your family. God bless you 😉 (:

    Amazing !

  •   David Lee  |   

    Wow! Looks exactly like my wife, Beverly, at the age of 18 when she was
    pregnant in 1973 — and not one single stretch mark afterwards. Gee, the
    only difference is that she was on a high protein/low carb diet. Within 24
    hours of giving birth she invited me into her room at the Oaknoll Naval
    Hospital, striped off all her clothes, and said, “Take a look at THIS!” I
    couldn’t even tell that she had ever been pregnant. Weight? 117 pounds
    before birth and after birth. She stepped on the scale to prove it.
    Furthermore, the OBGYN clinic at that hospital had photos in their lobby
    for 30 years of her pregnancy, our daughter’s birth, and the breast feeding
    of our daughter. She was the first women in a military hospital to have
    photos taken of the pregnancy, labor, delivery, and breast feeding the
    newborn child; she was a legend at that hospital. Oh, and she too, had a
    natural child birth with no pain killers. That was evident from the look
    on her face during labor and delivery that can be seen in the photos.

  •   tall vegan girl  |   

    I know that breast milk is best, but what would you recommend if you adopt?
    Obviously if I adopt & I’m not pregnant, I will not create breast milk. I
    know it’s an unusual question, but my husband & I are considering adoption.
    Just curious what I should do if this option becomes reality.

  •   tall vegan girl  |   

    Also- you may have already talked about this- prenatal vitamins? Did you
    take any? If so, what brand? Thanks!

    Curious – now that you have had your sweet baby – if you nurse. If yes,
    does your milk seem to be effected in any way (enough is my main concern)?
    I was not raw during my pregnancy – or ever been – but considering
    transitioning to this. One meal a day thus far. I do have a nursing
    newborn.

    I’m not pregnant, yet. We’ve been trying for months. I’m now searching
    online for health tips and came across raw vegan. I might give this a try.
    Perhaps it might help with our fertility.

  •   Mari  |   

    can stretch marks go away on a raw vegan diet? I have so many! Help!

    •   Rawsomehealthy  |   

      I’d give it a try if I were you, together with exercise and healthy living.

    i really really love this video sooo much its sooo helpful im trying to get
    pregnant myself has anyone tried the ebook The Pregnancy Miracle by lisa
    olsen if anyone has how successful is it ???

  •   Peter B.  |   

    The most important thing in any healthy diet is the absence of processed
    food. Under “Paleo” You must not eat anything that needs to be processed or
    cooked to eat it. Example: bread, soy is poison without being cooked. Wheat
    has to be cooked for your body to be able to digest it. An all fruit diet
    would fall under the summer diet in “Paleo” The winter diet would be mostly
    animals under “Paleo”. The Kosher diet eliminates blood because most
    microbes an animal might be carrying around are blood born. Kosher adds a
    restriction don’t eat scavengers or predators because the are full of
    parasites from the animals they eat dead or alive.

  •   vintage lady  |   

    What did you use on your skin, (if anything), during pregnancy? Did you use
    something specifically for stretch marks? Thank you in advance, any
    information is super helpful!

  •   Summer V  |   

    Why not more greens?

  •   Moon Keller  |   

    How did u not get any stretch marks

  •   Kate Floy  |   

    I would like to walk again! I had a dislocated hip at birth and now it has developed arthritis! I can get rid of the inflammation with fruit, but then there is stythe structural damage I need to address. I was ready for surgery, but I canno get clearance because the BP is too high while I am in the dr’s office. We have tried 5 times and it still reads 160 and over for the systolic. At home it is 121.
    I believe with a fruit diet and exercise I can get the bones at least close to normal. Hopefully, after reading this, you will too!!!?
