  • ** DO NOT ** come into the pharmacy if you have just had a Covid test. You will be provided with a paper slip that has a phone number on it to contact us, so we can help if you need a prescription. Call us if you need assistance first.
  • Restricted customer numbers in-store. This is due to the 2-metre social distancing required.
  • Increased sanitisation, hygiene, and cleaning protocols ( please sanitise on entry at one of our sanitiser stations )
  • Anyone who has cold or flu symptoms should get a test and stay home until you have a negative test result. You can find your local testing facility at https://www.healthpoint.co.nz/covid-19/

  • We ask you to please remain calm. Do not come in unless it is urgent. Our phone lines are inundated and our team is working hard to manage all enquiries.
  • WHEN PICKING UP A PRESCRIPTION, please phone ahead. That way we can give you a rough time frame as to when you can expect your script to be ready. Upon pick up, you will be required to wait outside the pharmacy or in your car until your script is ready.
  • Locations of interest are being updated as new information becomes available at https://www.health.govt.nz/our-work/diseases-and-conditions/covid-19-novel-coronavirus/covid-19-health-advice-public/contact-tracing-covid-19/covid-19-contact-tracing-locations-interest

  • Help keep our pharmacy staff safe! If you are unwell DO NOT go into the pharmacy - call ahead for advice or to arrange prescriptions.
  •  

No one wants to be here again, but we are so PLEASE remember to be KIND, PATIENT, and know we are ALL trying to do the best we can. Please be compassionate and check in on people who are by themselves. There is always heightened anxiety for some around this time

 

We've been here before, we know how to handle this. Keep calm, be kind, and we will get through this together again. We're here to help.

 

Thank you and stay safe Waiuku!

from  the entire team at Unichem Waiuku Pharmacy and Medical Pharmacies

Blackmores Pregnancy & Breast-Feeding Gold is specially developed to provide 20 essential nutrients, including iodine, that may be beneficial for a mother and her developing baby.
 

Features & Benefits:

  • Provides 20 important nutrients for pregnant and breastfeeding women and their babies, including 12 vitamins, 7 minerals and odourless omega-3 fatty acids

  • Low-constipation and low-nausea form and dose of iron (ferrous bisglycinate)

  • Iodine dose based on recommended New Zealand pregnancy supplementation guidelines.  Iodine promotes healthy development of baby's brain, eyesight & hearing.

  • Provides Provides a daily dose of 500 µg of folic acid that may reduce the risk of brain and/or spinal cord birth defects such as spina bifida and anencephaly if taken daily for 1 month prior to conception and during pregnancy.

  • Provides vitamin D3 to support calcium absorption to assist with healthy development of baby's bones.

  • Odourless fish oil with high purity and quality without fishy aftertaste.  Omega-3 essential fatty acids promote healthy development of baby's brain & eyesight.

  • Contains betacarotene (no vitamin A)

  • Smaller, easier to swallow, vanilla flavoured capsules

 

Research shows many New Zealand mothers do not consume sufficient amounts of the right nutrients during pregnancy and breastfeeding.

The latest national nutrition survey found inadequate intakes of iron, calcium, selenium, B group vitamins and vitamin A amongst women of childbearing age.  In a study of pregnant New Zealanders in 2009, almost all participants were found to have intakes of vitamin D, folate, iron, and selenium below the estimated average requirement.

Adequate nutrition during pregnancy has been shown to influence pregnancy outcome.  Normal growth and development are dependent on key nutrients such as folic acid, iodine, iron, omega-3 fatty acids and zinc.

Healthy gestation and birth weight, healthy development of a baby's brain, visual motor skills and hearing and healthy hormone levels, energy and vitality in pregnant women can all be influenced by nutrition.

 

Digestive disturbances and discomfort can be common during pregnancy.  Choosing an iron supplement which is low constipation and low nausea, such as ferrous bisglycinate, can minimise digestive discomfort.,  Digestive discomfort can also be minimised by choosing a supplement which contains odourless fish oil, without a fishy after taste, and small, easy-to-swallow capsules.
