Pregnancy and Postnatal Nutritional Advice
Our in-house doctor, Venita Patel offers specialised consultations for pregnancy nutrition, to optimise the health of the mother and support development of the baby. Many pregnancy symptoms can also be reduced or supported with natural dietary and supplement options. Postnatal support is also incredibly important, to nourish the mother and help recover from the pregnancy and birthing process, as well as ensure the best start for the newborn. Dr Patel can advise on all aspects of postnatal care and nutrition for both the new mother and her baby. Prenatal, fertility and general health nutrition consultations are also offered, to maximise your chance of a healthy pregnancy. Particular issues such endometriosis, PCOS and fibroids, are conditions often affecting fertility, yet can be managed with dietary changes, lifestyle interventions and specific nutrients.
