Prenatal Nutrition

Expectant mothers understand the profound joy and responsibilities that come with nurturing a new life. One of these responsibilities is maintaining optimal prenatal nutrition, something that can seem complex and challenging. 

Pregnancy brings about dynamic changes in your nutritional needs, both as you prepare for conception and throughout your pregnancy journey. The choices you make during this time are not only essential for your wellbeing but also significantly influence your baby's genetics and future health. At Simple Steps, our primary objective is to support you at every stage, ensuring you and your baby receive optimal nourishment from preconception to each trimester of your pregnancy.

Common concerns during pregnancy often include managing morning sickness, maintaining balanced nutrient intake, and ensuring food safety. Gina provides tailored guidance that addresses your unique needs and challenges, offering simple, sustainable solutions to help you foster healthy habits.

prenatal nutrition

Our services encompass thorough nutrition assessments and nutrient analysis. We can advise you on improving your prenatal health through nutrition and lifestyle changes, offering insights based on the latest scientific research. If necessary, we can recommend nutritional supplements to optimise both maternal and foetal health.

Regardless of where you are in your journey, optimising your nutrition plays a crucial role in both maternal and foetal wellbeing. So, whether you've just started trying to conceive naturally, or you're considering assisted methods, we will work closely with you to provide easy-to-implement, evidence-based tools and strategies.

Pregnancy is a thrilling yet daunting time, especially if it's your first. Making sense of differing advice and information can be overwhelming and lead to confusion or unnecessary dietary restrictions. We believe in simplifying this journey for you. As your nutrient needs change over the nine months of pregnancy, we ensure that both you and your baby's nutritional requirements are met at each trimester and stage of growth and development.

When it comes to choosing a prenatal Nutritionist on the Central Coast, Simple Steps Nutrition is your trusted partner. Our commitment is to help you focus on your health and food quality, preparing you for your new role as a mum-to-be.

Postnatal Nutrition

The journey of motherhood doesn't end with the birth of your child; it just shifts into a new and equally important phase. This postnatal period calls for careful nutritional care to aid in your recovery, maintain energy levels, and optimise breastfeeding if you choose to do so. Simple Steps Nutrition, your dedicated postnatal Nutritionist on the Central Coast, is here to assist during this essential period.

Following birth, the first six weeks are crucial for your body's recovery and wound healing. During this time, your nutrient needs are distinctly different, and it is essential to address any pre-pregnancy nutrient deficiencies. Moreover, restoring your energy levels and returning to your pre-pregnancy weight in a healthy manner can become primary goals. At Simple Steps Nutrition, we understand that navigating this new phase of your life can feel overwhelming. That's why we're committed to providing simple, achievable steps to ensure you receive the postnatal nutrition necessary for recovery and to establish healthy eating patterns for your entire family.

Breastfeeding mothers have unique nutritional requirements. By understanding your specific situation and feeding goals for your baby, we can offer personalised nutrition support, encompassing both food and nutrient supplements. This comprehensive approach aids in postnatal recovery and aids in preventing complications such as postpartum depression.

Just as your body's nutrient needs differ post-birth, so too does your lifestyle. Juggling the responsibilities of caring for your newborn with the demands of daily life can leave little time for planning and preparing nutritious meals.

We empower you to create individualised meal plans that cater to the unique needs of you and your family, regardless of the stage you're at. Our goal is to transform mealtimes into enjoyable, stress-free occasions through simple tweaks that save you time, effort, and money.

With the guidance of Simple Steps Nutrition, your trusted postnatal Nutritionist on the Central Coast, you can embark on your postnatal journey with confidence.

Your well-being is our priority, and we are dedicated to supporting you through this beautiful phase of your life.

Paediatric Nutrition

The early years of your child's life are marked by rapid growth and development, making nutrition an incredibly vital component of their well-being. At Simple Steps Nutrition, we understand the unique challenges of this stage and are dedicated to helping parents navigate through them, ensuring their little ones grow up healthy and strong.

As toddlers and preschoolers explore their environment, they learn a multitude of skills, including feeding themselves, asserting their preferences, and imitating the people around them. These developments can make providing nutritious food in a positive and encouraging manner more challenging. This is a critical phase when children form their eating habits, and as such, it's an opportune time for positive role modelling. At Simple Steps Nutrition, we know that good nutrition fuels not just the physical growth, but also the learning capacities of your child.

toddler nutrition

Our commitment is to assist you in instilling a balanced diet for your child that supports their healthy development, teaches them to manage their appetite, and helps them build a positive relationship with food. With the variety of foods, individual preferences, different stages of growth, and family dynamics to consider, managing your child's nutrition can sometimes feel overwhelming. We are here to alleviate that burden and work closely with you, providing simple, practical strategies that perfectly align with your unique family situation and lifestyle.
Whether you are grappling with a fussy eater or seeking to maintain a balanced diet for your growing child, we are here to support you with your children's nutrition goals. From planning meals, and packing nutritious lunchboxes, to suggesting healthy snacks, we give you the tools to simplify everything food-related. This way, you can focus more on the joy of raising your child and less on the stress of their meals.

By engaging the services of Simple Steps Nutrition, you gain more than just a toddler nutritionist. You gain a partner in ensuring your child's health and a guide in establishing good nutritional foundations for them.
