Meet Melinda Braithwaite, Owner of Lifestyle Nutrition

Melinda is your Dietitian who loves being able to inspire, motivate and support families to navigate their fertility and pregnancy journey and better manage or overcome the nutritional issues in which they face with their children.

With a gentle approach when working with families, both parents and children are able to feel comfortable to open up and discuss their concerns without feeling judged. Melinda provides families with practical, simple and evidence based strategies to support fertility, pregnancy and child nutrition.

As a paediatric and prenatal dietitian, Melinda has a strong interest in gut health in particular irritable bowel syndrome, food intolerances, food allergies and coeliac disease. Melinda herself has experienced how food intolerances can impact on gut health and everyday living and therefore is very passionate about helping mum’s-to-be and parents to better understand and manage gut symptoms prior to conception, during pregnancy and with their children.

Melinda consults from various medical and allied health centres across the Mornington Peninsula and South Eastern Suburbs.
