Nikki has special interests and passion for supporting pre-term babies to reach optimal health and developmental milestones.
Preterm infants have limited stores of many nutrients as accretion occurs predominantly in the last trimester of pregnancy. The early nutritional management of preterm infants can be vital to the child's short and long term health.
Support focuses on ensuring the baby receives the correct balance of nutrients they need, whether that be via boob, bottle, tube or family foods to support healthy growth and development by evidenced-based and safe nutrition therapy.
Management of preterm infants usually includes collaboration with your GP or paediatrician to provide the best management to improve your child's symptoms and health.
