Prenatal Nutrition Counselling Referral

The Prenatal Nutrition Clinic provides specialized nutrition counselling for women before pregnancy, during pregnancy and after delivery.

Our goal is to help each woman meet the nutritional needs of herself and her baby.  We are experts at translating diet and supplement recommendations into practical strategies for healthy eating.

Nutrition risk factors during pregnancy based on Health Canada guidelines are:

  • inadequate energy/nutrient intake
  • multiple gestation
  • nausea and vomiting
  • under/over weight pre-pregnancy
  • inadequate or excessive weight gain in pregnancy
  • food allergies or intolerances
  • vegetarianism or veganism
  • disordered eating or poor eating habits
  • inflammatory bowel disease, renal disease, or symptomatic gall bladder disease
  • anemia
  • intrauterine growth restriction
  • mother under 18 years of age
  • less than 12 months between births and/or concurrent breastfeeding

Pre-pregnancy and post-delivery counselling is also available for women who:

  • are underweight/overweight and planning a pregnancy
  • are currently breastfeeding
  • had gestational diabetes and are seeking guidance to lower their risk of developing Type 2 diabetes
