About Abby


Hello! I’m Abby Hand, a Preconception Health Consultant and Health Coach in Austin, TX, with a Masters of Science in Maternity Nursing. I specialize in helping women and couples prepare for pregnancy through health optimization and behavioral/lifestyle coaching. My programs utilize a blend of current research, traditional and natural philosophies, and incorporate biometric tracking and epigenetics. I believe optimizing the health of both parents prior to conception helps build strong families and communities, creating a healthier, happier world.
