How it all came to be…

Prioritising Women’s Health

The idea for Lifestyle Maternity was conceived during monthly water-running sessions (read: debriefs and coffee catch ups) with long term friend and colleague, Dr Terri South. Dr Terri, a dual qualified GP and dietitian, is the Director of Lifestyle Metabolic. Dr Shelley and Dr Terri wanted to create practices that educated, supported and empowered women to better health and wellness through lifestyle change. With strongly aligned values, the sister practices prioritise evidence-based innovation with a firm focus of client-centred care.
