We have a specialised Dietitian who works with us on the unit and provides preconception advice. You will be offered an appointment with her if your BMI is above or below the guidelines for treatment. Anyone under the unit’s care can request an appointment regarding optimising their nutritional intake and healthy eating advice.
The first appointment is for 30 minutes. At this appointment you will be weighed, Emma will discuss your eating patterns and habits, physical activity levels and any barriers to making lifestyle changes. At the end of the consultation your goals will be set and agreed and Emma will provide you with appropriate written information or sign post you to other services that can help you.
We appreciate how difficult it is to lose weight and find that support during this time is essential. You are welcome to bring your partner or a friend or family member if you feel that this will help with support.
Always remember that we are here to support you every step of the way!
