Congratulations...you're going to be a Mum!

 

Pregnancy is one of the most exciting times in a woman’s life, but there is a lot to learn and discover as you prepare for the arrival of your little one. 

 

Working out what you should (or should not) be eating can be confusing, especially when pregnancy brings its own health challenges which can affect your way of eating. You might be asking yourself: What kinds of foods should I be eating to meet my nutritional needs during pregnancy? What foods do I need to avoid? What vitamin and mineral supplements should I be taking? How do I optimise my nutrition to help control my morning sickness?

 

Nutrition and lifestyle choices are essential for optimising your health, as well as influencing the health of your growing baby. In fact, research has shown that what you eat and what your baby eats during your pregnancy and in the first two years of life can provide the essential building blocks for your child's brain development, healthy growth and a strong immune system for life.

 

Whether you're five weeks or five months pregnant, I can guide you to make the best nutritional choices for you and your baby with your personalised pregnancy nutrition & lifestyle plan so that you can relax and enjoy your pregnancy.

Step 1: Discovery Consultation

Your 20 minute Discovery Consultation gives us a chance to meet and get to know each other, for you to tell me a bit about how your pregnancy is going, and to decide if I'm the right person to help you on your journey. 

We'll discuss:

  • Complete a comprehensive nutritional assessment 
  • Complete a lifestyle assessment 
  • Set your pregnancy nutrition and lifestyle goals
