Reasons why you should join us

Our self-paced, online courses (Nourish & Nurture) are designed by Lifestyle Maternity’s principal dietitian, Associate Professor Shelley Wilkinson. They are based on her PhD and subsequent research which investigated effective ways to support women to achieve healthier pregnancies through better nutrition and physical activity habits.

Enrolling in one of Lifestyle Maternity’s “Nourish & Nurture” online courses for either Fertility or Pregnancy gets results. When tested in a randomised controlled trial, session attendance motivated women to significantly increase their fruit and vegetable intake, dietary quality measures, and undertake greater levels of suitable physical activity.

Our goal is to be Australia’s leading dietetic practice that offers proven, innovative strategies to improve diet quality, manage gestational weight gain, and decrease post-partum weight retention through demonstrated client-focussed care and strong referrer relationships to produce high quality health and lifestyle outcomes.

If your values align with our beliefs and you would like your clients to benefit from an evidence-based, established healthy habits program please contact us to discuss what this might look like.


Our partners recognise that a person’s maternity journey can be enhanced through optimal nutrition and physical activity by being supported to adopt more healthy habits.

They also know that that epigenetics underpins these intergenerational benefits.
