Can I do health coaching help while planning a pregnancy?

Yes, the Get Healthy Service can help anyone be the best version of themselves, and there are lot’s of reasons why it’s good to get ready for first or next pregnancy!

Research shows being a healthy weight and abstaining from alcohol prior to getting pregnant has many benefits:

  • Better chances of falling pregnant
  • Less chances of miscarriage
  • Less likely to get gestational diabetes or high blood pressure in pregnancy
  • More choices where and how you want to give birth
  • Better health for baby and you!

Can I do health coaching after I have baby?

After baby is born we sometimes feel like our body is not the same. This is normal. Our health coaches would love to help you.

It is especially important if you have had Gestational Diabetes, Pre-eclampsia or other blood pressure issues. Making sure you keep on your get healthy journey and sustain your healthy behaviours after pregnancy can:

  • Help prevent Type 2 diabetes in the future
  • Help prevent heart disease
  • Help prevent high blood pressure
  • Get back to a healthy weight before trying for another baby

Breastfeeding is one great way to get yourself and your baby healthy start 

  • Gives baby everything they need nutritionally and for good lifelong health
  • Can help with your return to a healthy pre-pregnancy weight
  • Reduces the risk of breast cancer

For more benefits of breastfeeding talk to your child and family health nurse, lactation consultant or go to the Australian Breastfeeding Association
