You may have been told that there is nothing you can do to improve your egg and sperm quality. But this is simply untrue! There’s a huge body of research that shows how even small changes to your diet can increase your chances of success.
In my experience, most women in their 30s and 40s have a good understanding of diet, but very little understanding of nutrition. We are all used to planning what we eat to ensure we maintain our perfect dress size but the body has very different nutritional requirements for conception and pregnancy as compared to fitness and weight management.
I am not interested in diets that keep you a size 8, I am interested in diets that help you get pregnant.
Without a doubt, nutrition is the key to laying down foundations for fertility and healthy pregnancy; small changes can make a BIG difference. I support clients of any reproductive age, with or without a conventional diagnosis. My clients are often older, and have failed IVF or had recurrent miscarriages.
What you eat and what you don’t eat during pregnancy has a profound effect on the health and development of your baby for his or her whole life.
When you’re pregnant, your baby depends on you for all the building blocks required for healthy growth and development. So it’s vital that your diet is nutrient dense and tailored to your particular stage of pregnancy.
If you’re feeling pressured by the responsibility of eating for two, and confused by all the advice from well-meaning family and friends, you’re not alone.
I believe in the power of a well-designed nutritional programme. Designed to give your unborn baby the best possible start, the right diet will minimise your risk of morning sickness, gestational diabetes and a whole host of other conditions.
You can be sure you will receive a sympathetic, non-judgemental and holistic approach, along with an easy-to-follow programme, because I recognise that everybody makes changes at their own pace.
