We offer all pregnant women and people living in Brighton and Hove with a BMI between 25 and 40 a referral to a weight management service called BeeZee Bumps. BeeZee Bumps is a service funded by the Healthy Lifestyles team at Brighton and Hove City Council.
What to expect
You will be contacted and have at least 2-3 virtual sessions with a trained pregnancy nutritionist. They will give you specialist advice and develop a individual plan with you, covering issues such as:
- Nutritional requirements at each stage of pregnancy
- Dealing with nausea
- Recommended weight gain in pregnancy
- Healthy snack ideas
- Exploring motivations for behaviour change
- Comfort eating and triggers
A maternal dietitian is available to answer questions around pregnancy nutrition, food safety, portion size, myth-busting, healthy planning, safe exercise and more.
