Clinical Nutrition & Dietetics

Dietitians assess your medical and nutritional needs, identify any areas of concern and offer support to help you make diet and lifestyle changes when needed. Dietitians work as part of multidisciplinary teams and link with other health professionals (such as the midwife, doctor, physiotherapist or social worker) and other services involved in your (or your baby’s) care. The dietetic service is available for women and babies under the care of the National Maternity Hospital. You can get advice from our dietitians at our classes that provide nutrition information for you or your baby as well as booked appointments if you are referred by hospital staff.

Cancellations: If you need to change or cancel an appointment, please contact us so that we can give the appointment to women waiting to be seen by the dietitian and to urgent cases.
