Hello! My name is Simmone Lewer. I am a specialist Gestational Diabetes dietitian.
I have 11+ years experience working in diabetes. I am Australian and started my career helping pregnant Aboriginal women in outback Australia. I loved it so much and this developed my passion towards diabetes.
In 2012 I moved to the UK and worked in the National Health Service (NHS) specialising in diabetes and antenatal diabetes services, meanwhile studying a masters in public health and completing post graduate courses on fertility and pregnancy.
I left the NHS in 2021 as I felt burnout and frustrated. I hated the restriction of having only 10 minutes to help Mums with Gestational Diabetes and I knew I WANTED TO DO MORE!
I saw a close friend of mine really struggle with gestational diabetes. I was able to help her so much so she could still enjoy her pregnancy and found this so so rewarding.
Many women I work with COME TO ME feeling so lost, overwhelmed and stressed. No wonder, when there is so much conflicting advice around! This all makes navigating gestational diabetes alone so confusing.
I now dedicate my career to help mums so they can learn how to balance blood sugars while still ENJOYING pregnancy.
