"klara+co was born from the desire to provide a starting point, possibly a reference point for pregnancy related vitamins and supplements.
There is an overwhelming and abundant selection of prenatal and related supplements out on the market from which choosing one can be an enormous challenge. I hope to lend my knowledge from all the years of study, practice, and experience to support and empower women in making educated choices for their pregnancy and for their growing families.
I wanted to create a resource that is personal and coherent, a collection of supplements I believe in for their purity and quality - rooted in the belief that whole foods are the basis of life and nourishment. The selection of products you will find on klara+co have been thoughtfully curated with the goal of supporting pregnancy foremost but also very importantly all that comes with and after, in postpartum and for the livelihoods of the partners and children that create the whole family.
My passion has always held firmly for helping individuals and couples start families, and in supporting women through the beautiful and profoundly transformative journey of pregnancy and beyond. After over a decade of care in all the modalities I practiced, and through experiences with so many woman and families, I realize how significant the impact of trusted support can be. My own enthusiasm for nutrition and supplementation fostered my research for all the various things I have recommended my patients all these years, but it was their conviction to health and vitality that has fueled my commitment to not only continue providing but expand that scope of support."
