Using Food to Fight Pregnancy Cravings

18 Jan 2017

Cravings are a signal to your body that it needs something. The right foods and the right quality help you avoid cravings and excessive weight gain. It is a signal that your body needs something specific, and it is not saying it just needs more calories necessarily. This is important to keep in mind because you really do not need to eat for two. You only need to increase your caloric intake by 300 calories starting in the second trimester and 500 calories in the third trimester.

#GivingTuesday kicks off the December Month of Giving!

29 Nov 2016

December is the month of giving! If you are looking for a way to give back in your local community, Willow Tree has items that are needed to help serve families in Lansing.  

The items below are used for the free support groups that welcome all families types. These groups meet each day at Willow Tree, and we need several supplies to help people feel safe and welcome in our center.
