Why should I be consulting a dietitian?

The link between fertility and diet has long been established. Having a personalised nutrition plan has been proven to improve fertility. It can help regulate ovulation cycles and improve sperm quality. 

Studies have shown from the time a couple are looking to conceive, through to pregnancy and the first two years of the child’s development, diet and nutrition has a strong impact. Particularly on the child’s genetics and influences their health throughout their life. This concept is called Epigenetic Programming.

Investing in dietetic input through the clinic’s specialist fertility dietetic clinic can help with:

  • optimising the chances of getting pregnant
  • help regulate ovulatory cycles
  • improve the health of eggs
  • improve success rate of assisted reproductive treatments
  • reducing pregnancy related risk factors for both mum and baby
  • improving health of new born
  • reduce risk of developing chronic diseases as a by-product of lifestyle modifications
  • receive clarity on pregnancy care.

Why trust a dietitian, rather than a nutrition expert in high street?

It is easy these days to complete a weekend course and call yourself a diet expert. As nutrition is such an important part of both your fertility and pregnancy journey, its best to rely on someone qualified.
