Kate’s Newborn 2016
I had Gastric Band surgery in 2008. Unfortunately I did have complications which subsequently led to my Gastric Bypass in 2012.
Since the bypass surgery, I had good control of my weight and managed my health.
My next challenge was my little one
I was pregnant with our first baby, Benji in July 2015. I was a little apprehensive at first, but the journey was smooth sailing.
I was well supported, informed, supplemented and closely monitored. I was confident in the team.
The support from the dieticians in working around my limitations (energy, protein, iron, vitamins, minerals) was very valuable. There were always alternatives for me to maintain my general health and wellbeing as well as the baby’s.
On April 30th 2016… after a long labour, Benji was born, happy and healthy. I am proud of my little bundle of joy and the assistance on this particular journey
