Want to be pregnant or is your weight impacting your fertility?
5 to 10 % of weight loss has been associated with improvement in fertility. Weight loss prior to pregnancy can be good for your health and your future child's health. Overweight mothers are more likely to have delivery or pregnancy issues including unplanned caesarean section, failure of epidural, high blood pressure, pregnancy induced diabetes and increased bleeding during delivery. Overweight mothers may impact their babies potential for behavioural conditions and life long obesity risk.
As weight loss during pregnancy is not a safe option it is better to improve your health prior to your pregnancy. Weight loss can be achieved with changes to lifestyle measures. These measures will not impact your life more than a newborn. The Healthy Weight Clinic is managed by a Nurse Practitioner who supports you in your weight loss journey. The clinic is bulk billed and operates with a collaborative agreement with Dr Lockie as required by Health Law. All Healthy Weight Clinic patients have access to all the services in the Dr Lockie’s practice to support their weight loss choices and options. This include Dietician, Psychologist, Support group and other weight loss procedures.
