Who is Crystal Karges?

Crystal is the mother of 5 beautiful children and works as a Registered Dietitian and Board Certified Lactation Consultant. Here’s a glimpse into her story:

“As a survivor of an eating disorder and postpartum depression, I am passionate about empowering mothers to nourish themselves first, so that they may better nourish their families. I’ve overcome a chaotic relationship with food and a long battle with anorexia; I was told I may never become pregnant and then suffered through postpartum depression after I did. I also understand what it’s like to be overwhelmed as a working mother; putting self-care on the back-burner while taking care of your family. A balanced, nourished life is possible.”

Join us in the SmartMom app on Thursday August 16th at 8pm ET / 7pm CT to ask Crystal anything!
