We support women via Telehealth appointments and ongoing support

We offer all of our consults via Halaxy providing you safe, secure and private consultations.

Telehealth Appointments

Telehealth consultations mean our clients do not need to physically travel to the consultation location, and therefore can access specialised care which may not otherwise be easily available to them.

How do Telehealth appointments work

What to expect

Lifestyle Maternity’s Telehealth service is available Australia-wide. We believe everyone should be able to access safe, high level, effective care to support their lifestyle goals on their maternity journey. Please note – our base is in Brisbane, so appointments will be scheduled according to Australian Eastern Standard Time (AEST).

We encourage you to review and follow the step-by-step instructions to book your appointment with us.


Prior: Once you book an appointment with us, we will send you a link to complete a dietary assessment. This will let you share what and how you eat using industry standard surveys. This provides us with direction for your consult as well as a baseline against which we will measure your changes.

You will gain access to the Lifestyle Maternity members-only area. This will provide you with information, resources, and activities. These will guide you to set goals, track your progress, and brush up on the latest in nutrition for optimal fertility, a glowing pregnancy, and a happy and balanced first year after birth.

During: Based on your goals, questions, and dietary assessment, we will develop an individualised plan with you. This will involve tailoring best practice nutrition guidelines to your personal circumstances and preferences to optimise your preconception, pregnancy, or postnatal health through dietary and lifestyle change. This will run for 45 minutes.

Discounts will be provided to current clients who may initially see us for optimising fertility nutrition who then become pregnant and need a new assessment and plan. This also applies to women we have been seeing during pregnancy for ongoing postnatal support and advice.


Lifestyle Maternity’s online, self-paced programs are designed and delivered to achieve similar outcomes to individual appointments.

Participants will be encouraged and guided to assess their own health habits against fertility or pregnancy recommendations, participate in activities around health goals for optimal nutrition and how to adapt their routines to achieve them. Resources are provided to supplement activities and information.

Registrants are welcome to engage with the program, bundle their purchase with a specially crafted cookbook or meal plan or use it as an introduction to building a relationship with Lifestyle Maternity.


Women have told us they appreciate the support and accountability of regular contact with us to support their lifestyle changes.

Following a group or individual appointment you have the opportunity to book a review (15 minutes, $70) or long review (30 minutes, $88).


You can make an appointment with a Lifestyle Maternity dietitian without a referral from a GP or specialist. If you have private health insurance, some of your appointment costs may be covered depending on your level of cover – we recommend you check with your insurer. Following payment for your telehealth appointment we will provide you with a receipt to self-claim from them.

To check what you will be required to pay, provide your insurer with the consultation cost and the HICAPS item number below to find out how much you will be required to pay.

HICAPS item number:

  • Initial individual consultation: 301
  • Long review or review appointments: 302

Dr Shelley Wilkinson of Lifestyle Maternity is a Credentialed Eating Disorder Clinician. She is able to receive referrals from GPs to see people with diagnosed eating disorders. As we operate fully via telehealth the item number is 93074.

Telehealth appointments use electronic information and communication technologies to deliver services to an individual at a different location. Clients who book a Lifestyle Maternity consultation are consenting to the provision of health care services by Lifestyle Maternity via Telehealth.

The benefits of a Telehealth consultation are that clients do not need to physically travel to the consultation location and therefore can access specialised care which may not otherwise be easily available to them.
