Thorough nutritional assessment with a clinical and dietetic anamnesis (family and personal health background, allergies, intolerances, etc), biochemical assessment (blood sugar, colesterol, iron, etc), anthropometrical aspects (height, weight, body fat, etc), clinical assessment (general health state, hair, skin, etc) and of course dietetic assessment (food diary, aversions, tabus, etc). Detailed diet analysis with professional softwares (in English and in Portuguese), including the largest food databases from Brazil and UK with nutritional facts of over 20.000 foods. A close-up look of your diet's composition (in macro- and micronutrients) is the first step on finding out if you are getting all the nutrients you need or if changes need to be made.
With the information from the nutritional assessment a dietetic strategy (weigh gain planing, optimal diet composition, supplementation needs) can be customised just for you. Meal plan development based on your specific needs and your nutritional assessment results, family history, life-style and pregnancy period, with emphasis on key nutrients for a healthy pregnancy.
Here we can follow your weight gain, correct pregnancy related symptoms (nausea, vomiting, constipation, heartburn sensation, flatulence, etc), clarify doubts about foods and food products and everything else you may need. The Brazilian Health Ministry recommends one consultation on the first trimester and from the second trimester on, every 4 to 6 weeks.
