Twilight Online: Healthy Gestational Weight Gain

Time: 7.30pm - 8.30pm

Weight gain is part of every woman’s pregnancy, but managing healthy weight gain during gestation can be difficult without appropriate support. The Healthy Gestational Weight Gain webinar, presented by Dr Linda Mann, will explore how General Practitioners (GPs) can assist pregnant patients, by personalising weight advice based on the Australian Clinical Practice Guidelines for Antenatal Care and integrating the free Get Healthy in Pregnancy Coaching Service into their support team. Get Healthy in Pregnancy is an evidence-based motivational phone-based health coaching service, that provides ongoing check ins to your patients, and feedback to you (as her GP).
