Get Healthy In Pregnancy
At Get Healthy in Pregnancy we understand the individual and changing needs of pregnant women.
What is the program about?
When you are pregnant you hear lots of conflicting information. This, combined with the various discomforts of pregnancy can make it hard to know what choices to make that are healthy and safe for you and your baby. Pregnancy is a great opportunity to focus on your health and wellbeing for now and the future.
Our health coaches focus on lifestyle factors such as healthy eating and maintaining an active lifestyle which is safe for you and your baby. They provide expert advice to help you set goals to achieve a healthy weight gain during your pregnancy. They can also help you after your baby is born.
You will receive 10 coaching sessions with your own expert health coach. This also includes a printed information booklet and a Get Healthy journal to record your goals, progress and achievements.
What are the benefits of healthy eating and being active?
Better sleep, more energy, less lower back pain, reduced stress and anxiety, less nausea and heartburn, an easier labour, a reduction in pregnancy induced complications, better bowel habits and faster post baby recovery.
