So you have finally made it, and now you need to look after yourself and your precious baby. The minefield of what to eat, not to eat, how to cope with nausea and tiredness, should you take vitamins or not, how to manage any other medications you’re on and what really is the best food to eat for the baby, accompanied by first trimester anxiety, especially after fertility treatment, can just finish you off!

I will talk you through everything you need to know; all the dos and don’ts, the right vitamins, evidence based and plain common sense; I’ve been there myself and sometimes you can feel very overwhelmed. My initial pregnancy consultation will give you a plan with everything you need to know, a supplement plan and a fifteen minute catch-up at 14 and 26 weeks, just to ensure you are on track with each trimester. At 37 weeks we have another full consultation that covers labour or C-section, post natal and breast feeding, should you choose to do this, up to weaning.
