Growth Spectrum

Shop Owner: Kristy Manners


Hi, I’m Kristy Manners, a passionate Accredited Practicing Dietitian who loves to help mothers and their children through my business Growth Spectrum. After my own experiences and complications during and after childbirth, I have realised just how little support women have during pregnancy, labour and post-partum in nutrition, physical and mental recovery from labour, and breastfeeding support.

Why choose me to be your dedicated health care provider?


Because I know wholeheartedly that I will be able to make a difference through the power of nutrition and breastfeeding support. The international journal, The Lancet, highlights how important maternal and child nutrition and breastfeeding are from pre-conception through the first 1000 days of life to a child’s 2nd birthday  – it is a critical window of opportunity that forms the building blocks that affect a baby’s long-term health, brain development and ability to grow.

And to do that, we as health professionals and a society need to support and empower women and mothers during this journey! Will you join me?

Specialist areas include:

WOMEN’S HEALTH: Optimising fertility, Gestational diabetes, Polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS), Endometriosis, Thyroid issues, Hyperemesis gravidarum, Nutrients for pregnancy, Nutrients for breastfeeding, Labour preparation, Labour healing and recovery, Healthy weight gain, Postpartum weight loss.

BREASTFEEDING: Positions, Pumping, Milk supply, Weaning, Returning to work while breastfeeding, Latching issues, Mastitis, Engorgement.

BABY & TODDLER NUTRITION: Colic, Reflux, Breastfeeding, Allergies, Intolerances, Weaning, Introducing solids, Fussy eating, Sensory issues, Growth faltering, Formula feeding requirements.

I offer home visits in metro areas of Perth. This is particularly beneficial for parents of newborn babies and young children. And if you are located elsewhere, virtual appointments are available both nationally and internationally through Skype.

    Thanks Kristy! We really appreciate the time you spent with us. There is a lot of information out there and it was very helpful to speak with you and have you share your expert knowledge and experience to help us make a plan that suits our situation. We have been using the tips, advice and resources you gave us for a few weeks now and have found them all valuable. It was really convenient that we could have our appointments at home and thank you for following up with us later to check that everything is on track. - Meagan

    When I met Kristy in Kenya and I had no idea she had had such an interesting life! We shared notes on being pregnant, breastfeeding and the immense change that came upon us upon delivery of our babies. Both of us left Kenya and are now reinventing (or re-discovering?) ourselves while discovering the journey of motherhood. I am glad that she started Growth Spectrum, you couldn't get a better person to accompany you during your first 1000 days as a mother. - Lilia

    "Was great having Kristy come out to our house to discuss diet/intolerance issues both with myself and my newborn. She spent a lot of time with us, taking a very detailed history, came up with a plan to follow and offered lots of tips and suggestions to keep us going on our breastfeeding journey despite current struggles. She also gave a detailed run down of her suggestions and history in a concise document so that we would have a record for our GP and paediatrician. Kristy has then kept check on us with extra support via email. Definitely worth booking an appointment with for extra support to maintain a healthy diet and lifestyle." - Erin
