Helping Mothers-to-be have healthy babies

Evidence is mounting that what you eat and feed your baby in the first 1000 days can have significant effects on your pregnancy and may leave a permanent imprint on your baby's future health. We call this "Fetal Programming".

Good nutrition starts in utero.

The Pregnancy Dietitian

Hi! So nice to meet you! I am Shyamala Vishnumohan (AKA Dr Shy) Doctor of Food and Nutrition (PhD, The University of New South Wales, Sydney), Accredited Practising Dietitian and Consultant based in Perth. As a Certified Prenatal Dietitian, I have a passion for evidence- based pregnancy nutritionGestational diabetes and inclusive plant-based eating. I have spent more than 15 years in the fascinating field of plant foods from paddock to plate including hands on research into folates and folic acid, arguably the most discussed nutrient in pregnancy.

The genesis of "The Pregnancy Dietitian" arose during the global pandemic, in collaboration with Perth Maternity, to address the critical need for proactive and evidence based nutrition support for mothers and mothers-to-be. My mission is firmly rooted in Nutrition Science and traditional wisdom with the focus on empowering women with accurate and perosnalised nutrition information. It is a non-judgemental and culturally inclusive space to celebrate women and empower Mothers and Mothers-to-be by providing the latest nutrition knowledge and strategies so you can cut through misinformation and make informed choices for you and your baby.


I work one- on- one with clients and also share nutrition information on a mass level by working with media. 

Cheers to raising a healthier happier next generation!
