Pregnancy

No matter what stage of pregnancy you’re at, Weight Management Leicestershire can provide tailored, effective support and guidance.

Residents across Leicestershire and Rutland can receive personalised nutrition advice that helps to achieve and maintain a healthy lifestyle.

Led by Nutritionists, you will receive personalised nutrition advice that helps you to make healthier food and activity choices. As a result, you can improve your overall health throughout pregnancy and beyond.

 

Why is being a healthy weight important?

It is important for your overall health to maintain a healthy weight. Doing so can make you feel more energised and reduce your risk of various health conditions such as high blood pressure and diabetes.

Maintaining a healthy weight can also help with fertility for those looking to start a family.

Eating well and staying active during pregnancy can mean a healthier pregnancy and a safer birth. You should always follow your midwives’ advice.

 

Who can benefit?

Pre-pregnancy

You may benefit from tailored guidance if you are planning a pregnancy and require support to reach a healthy weight.

If you are preparing for or undergoing fertility treatment, we can provide advice on how to achieve and maintain a healthy weight to meet fertility treatment criteria.

During pregnancy

If you are currently pregnant, our Advisors will help to support you to achieve a healthy lifestyle. The focus is on diet quality.

To take part in Weight Management Leicestershire whilst pregnant, you will need to obtain a referral from your midwife.

Post-pregnancy
