Pre- and Post-natal Nutrition Consultations

A prenatal and postnatal nutrition consultation is a specialized service offered by Registered Dietitians (RDs) to parents before and after childbirth. These consultations aim to provide comprehensive guidance on optimal nutrition during pregnancy and after delivery, ensuring the health of the mother and baby, optimizing pregnancy outcomes, and supporting a robust milk supply. During prenatal consultations, RDs offer personalized nutrition guidance tailored to the specific needs of the mother and growing baby. Postnatally, the focus shifts to supporting the mother’s recovery from childbirth, breastfeeding nutrition, and establishing healthy eating habits for both the mother and baby.
