About me

My name is Amber Mae Kelly. I am a wife, mother, Registered Dietitian and soon-to-be Lactation Consultant.

In 2014 I completed my BSc in Biochemistry and Microbiology at NMU, and in 2018 I completed my BSc in Dietetics (cum laude) at NMU. After my internship, I completed my community service year at the Health Center at the military base in Grahamstown.

My areas of interest include infant and child nutrition, as well as in sustainable and realistic lifestyle change for adults. I am also equipped to assist clients with dietary management of medical conditions.

I am passionate about educating parents and individuals, equipping clients with knowledge that is founded on evidence-based research and supporting clients by walking a journey with them.

Services Offered

I offer the following services to my clients.

Infant and child nutrition

As a mom myself, I know that feeding an infant or child can become a stress and concern for some, but it doesn’t have to be. Let us help put your mind at ease by assisting you with the following:

  • Infant and child growth monitoring (weighing and other age-appropriate measurements)
  • Guidance with introduction to solids and baby-led weaning
  • Feeding issues (including fussy eating)
  • Any other nutrition-related concerns that you may have
  • Lactation consults

    “Breastfeeding is an instinctual and natural act, but it is also an art that is learned day by day… It is almost always simply a matter of practical knowledge and not a question of good luck.” You don’t have to feel alone on your breastfeeding journey. As a SACLC lactation consultant student, we are able to consult with moms and assist with the following:

  • Breastfeeding preparation prior to birth
  • Breastfeeding education and support
  • Breastfeeding home visits
  • Any other breastfeeding or infant feeding related concerns that you may have
  • Lifestyle change

    “It’s not a short-term diet. It’s a long-term lifestyle change.” After doing a nutritional assessment and gathering the necessary information from you, we will compile a plan that is:

  • Individualized: each eating plan and advice given is tailored to your specific needs as no two individuals are the same
  • Realistic: we try to make things as realistic as possible, by making small changes rather than a drastic change
  • Sustainable: by making realistic changes and helping you form a healthy relationship with food, we try to ensure a long-term lifestyle change rather than a quick fix
  • Inclusive: we know that everyone has things that they enjoy, and we will try our best to include these as we know that it is unrealistic to exclude and restrict all foods
  • We will set goals together and follow up on a regular basis.

    Medical nutrition therapy

    There are a variety of medical conditions that have special dietary requirements and/or dietary changes that should be implemented to manage your condition. After doing a nutritional assessment and gathering the necessary information from you, we will compile a plan that best suits your diagnosis. This plan and the guidelines will be discussed so that you understand why the changes need to be made. If you would like to enquire more about how diet relates to a specific medical condition, please send us a message by filling in the form in the contact us tab.
