Welcome back to The Pregnancy Centre. Our newsletter post will now be monthly instead of fortnightly. Our main reason for doing this is to shelter you from information overload! You know how it goes; you look up one question on the internet, to find three main facts and those facts lead you to 135 websites of ‘must haves’ and by the time you read through the next 10 pages in your browser, you’ve forgotten the question you needed a simple answer to in the first place.

So what’s Dianne up to? While she is still very much 'at our fingertips’, we do need to share her a little more these days. Dianne has joined a wonderful team of health professionals at the Peel Maternity Family Practice in Mandurah. Dianne offers a valuable physiotherapy service and fitness advice for new mums and new mums-to-be. So if you need her help, don’t hesitate to make an appointment. Peel Maternity provides a wide range of services for young families.
