Obstetrics, weight and nutrition clinic

Women who have a high body mass index (BMI) can be referred to our obstetrics, weight and nutrition clinic.
Our team, which includes midwives and dietitians, supports women to maintain or reduce their BMI, which in turn decreases the risk of complications during pregnancy and labour.

Adopting a healthy eating plan and an active lifestyle can prevent excessive weight gain in pregnancy. By joining our specialist clinic, you will learn what diet and lifestyle actions you can take to enhance the chances of a healthy pregnancy.
Information is provided on exercise and how physical activity can fit into your daily life.


You can be referred to our clinic by one of your healthcare professionals.


A midwife will complete a routine antenatal check, which will include listening to your baby’s heart beat, urine tests, blood pressure check and examining the general health of your pregnancy. Please bring your yellow book with you to the clinic.

A dietitian will work with you to create a personalised healthy eating plan, set specific weight gain targets and ensure you are receiving the nutrients needed for the growth of your baby.
