Alexandra Paetow is a registered dietitian nutritionist, mom of two, and founder of Thrive and Bloom Nutrition, a virtual nutrition practice based in New Jersey.

Alexandra specializes in nutrition through preconception, prenatal, and postpartum life stages. She uses intuitive eating principles to help women learn to trust and care for their changing bodies by breaking the diet cycle, building a positive relationship with food, and healing body image struggles. As a mom of two (soon to be three!) she understands the importance of low stress, practical strategies, and the profound impact that a mom’s nutrition and body image can have on the whole family.

She previously worked as an inpatient clinical dietitian covering surgical and obstetric populations at Montefiore Medical Center and served on the hospital breastfeeding committee. She also worked as a research dietitian on a prenatal nutrition research project at New York University.
