Menopause & Women’s Health
Whether you're struggling with fertility issues, menopausal symptoms, or want to learn more about nutrition and healthy eating, our nutrition experts can help.
At TeamNutrition, we understand that every woman is unique and has specific needs for her health and wellness. That's why we offer a variety of counselling services designed to meet the needs of women at every stage of life, from adolescence to menopause and beyond.
Prenatal nutrition focuses on providing nutrients to a developing fetus during pregnancy. These nutrients are essential for the proper development of the fetus and can have a lasting impact on the child’s health. Our registered dietitians and nutritionists can help pregnant women to ensure that they are getting the nutrients for their developing babies.
By working with one of our health professionals, pregnant women can give their children the best possible start in life. They can also guide how to maintain a healthy diet during pregnancy and gestational diabetes. In addition, dietitians and nutritionists can offer support and advice on managing any diet-related issues that may arise during pregnancy.
Postnatal nutrition covers the period following childbirth when a woman's body is working to recover and heal. It is important to eat nutrient-rich foods and stay hydrated to support the body's healing process. We can also help you develop a postnatal care plan for you that helps with weight loss. Our nutritional counselors can help new mothers identify healthy foods that promote healing and recovery.
By providing education and guidance, our counselors can help new mothers to make the postnatal period a healthier and happier time for both mother and baby. They can also offer advice on managing hunger and fatigue and provide tips for dealing with common postpartum problems such as constipation and engorgement. In addition, our team can help mothers to create a realistic and achievable breastfeeding plan that meets their unique needs.
Nutritional Counselling for Perimenopausal and Menopausal Women
As women age, their bodies go through significant changes that affect their overall health and well-being. Menopause is a time of transition when many women experience a wide range of symptoms, including:
- hot flashes
- night sweats
- weight gain
- mood swings
- sleep problems
Nutrition plays a vital role in managing these symptoms and maintaining overall health during this time of life. Nutritional counselling for perimenopausal and menopausal women helps identify specific dietary needs and develop a plan to address them. Our nutritional counselors use their knowledge and training to work with women during this life stage. They can provide valuable advice on everything from promoting bone health to managing weight gain and hot flashes. Our dietitians can also support women in developing healthy habits for managing health conditions such as osteoarthritis, osteoporosis, joint pain, high blood pressure and insulin resistance.
This stage of life includes changes in body image that can sometimes be difficult to accept for some women. Our professionals are attentive to your needs and will support you in this challenge. In addition, they can help women make lifestyle changes that will promote overall health and well-being before, during and after menopause.
Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS)
PCOS is a common hormonal disorder that affects women of reproductive age. The condition can cause a wide range of symptoms, including irregular periods, infertility, and excessive hair growth. Nutrition plays a vital role in managing PCOS, and our dietitians can help women with PCOS to create a dietary plan that meets their specific needs.
