  • Pre-conception, pregnancy and breastfeeding nutrition

During an initial consultation the Dietitian will:

  • Help you understand the link between food and your health
  • Work with you to set and achieve healthy eating and lifestyle goals, considering personal food preferences, family needs and any other factors
