MATERNAL HEALTH

INITIAL CONSULT

  • 75 - 90 minutes 

  • A full nutritional assessment (includes anthropometric measurements, medical history, examination of lifestyle and dietary habits)

  • Up - to - date nutrition education tailored to your specific goals, health condition and needs 

  • Practical advice and tools provided to assist with implementation of suggested changes

SECOND

CONSULT

  • 45 - 60 minutes 

  • Suggested to be within 2 weeks after initial consultation (provides time for you to start making changes)

  • Re-emphasis on goal setting, implementation and provide further tools (*if applicable: individual meal plan delivered)

*Note: My approach to a 'meal plan' is to educate you around portion sizes, balanced meals and flexibility rather than following a strict, rigid plan. It should be used as a guidance tool to help further implement your goals and to teach you about sustainable long term healthy eating patterns. However, more extensive meal plans (i.e more than 3 days) and additional resources can be done provided on request (at an additional cost).

FOLLOW UP

CONSULT(S)

  • Short (30minutes) or long (45minutes), depending on your personal needs

  • Regular follow-ups are encouraged to further implement sustainable changes, keeping you motivated and focused on your goals

  • The number of follow-ups required will depend on your progress, condition and goals. You will be advised accordingly

Tessa sees and counsels clients at her practice rooms  in Panorama Cancercare Unit and Miller And Meyer Physiotherapy, both situated in Cape Town.  

Skype consultations and follow up(s) available  for clients who live outside of Cape Town or who are not able to come in for a physical consult at the practice rooms.

Consultation rates are based on the Discovery Health medical aid rates (subject to change with timely notice). 

 

This practice is predominantly cash – based (you will be provided with a statement with the correct coding to submit to your medical aid) but can also submit directly to medical aids upon request.
