This month we’re putting the Nourish spotlight on Savannah Spencer. We’ve been so inspired watching the health & fitness coach’s pregnancy journey with her 3rd child, and now with a newborn in tow, we caught up with her about her nourishing daily rituals and habits.

- Pre/postnatal Coach
I like to combine these skills to bring a completely unique service to my clients.
What did you have for breakfast today?
I had a protein and mixed frozen berry smoothie with oat milk and a toasted seeded bagel with peanut butter – this is easy for me to eat whilst breastfeeding.
What does your morning routine look like?
Mornings are very interesting right now with a newborn baby and 2 older children! But I always prioritise time for myself to start the day because it’s super important for me to be aligned and positive before my family rise.
I get up, make a glass of lemon water, sit out on the balcony to drink it and spend 5 minutes speaking my morning affirmations and reminding myself of my blessings and health. I wake the older children, and as they get prepared for school I use this time to breastfeed Gia (my newborn) and get her ready and in the carrier for the school run. I walk the children to school, and then Gia and I head to the beach for our morning movement, not before picking up a takeaway coffee on the way (newborn sleep deprivation!). I usually complete between 8-10 thousand steps at the beach and Gia loves the natural white noise of the sea. We head home before the sun gets hot and I get the laptop out ready to connect with my online clients.
My typical morning affirmations:
- I am happy
- I am healthy
- I am wealthy
- I am positive
- I am blessed
- I am grateful
- I am capable of anything today may bring my way
What is your number one health habit?
Just one would have to be, starting every morning with a positive mindset because this is key to having a good day!
What is your guilty pleasure?
Almond croissants from Palma Bread. I was hoping my craving would end after pregnancy but here we are, still craving them haha!
What’s one book you’d recommend everyone to read?
If pregnant “Hypnobirthing: Practical Ways to Make Your Birth Better” – by Siobhan Miller (founder of The Positive Birth Company). If not, “The Power” – by Rhonda Byrne – a self-help & spiritual book that will completely transform your mindset.
