RMC PREGNANCY DIET PROGRAM - Supervised by Dr Viktor Vass Viktor, internist, diabetologist and endocrinologist

Excess weight gain during pregnancy increases the risk of a range of complications both before and during birth. We recommend this program for any pregnant women who would like to receive specialist help in order to determine the level of healthy weight gain during pregnancy and learn about the appropriate lifestyle for maintaining this weight. This program is highly recommended for women who are in the moderate or severely obese BMI categories, as their weight gain must be closely monitored during pregnancy.

Pregnancy places significant strain on the metabolism. Both excessive weight gain and not eating enough can be dangerous, which is why it is important to have expert supervision if you would like to diet. (Expert supervision is essential if you have gestational diabetes.) Our program for expectant mums helps you to decide on and then achieve a healthy body weight which will bring benefits for both the baby and the mum.

  • Diabetic women who are planning to have a baby
