Good nutrition is a cornerstone for good health and particularly when planning a pregnancy. A healthy, nutrient-rich and balanced diet will not only boost your chance of getting pregnant but also having a healthy baby.
Fertility is a natural process however sometimes this is not so straightforward. One in 8 couples have trouble of getting pregnant or sustaining pregnancy (CDC, 2010). Poor diet, hormonal imbalances, excessive weight, stress and poor lifestyle choices can have impact on fertility.
This 4-month pre-conceptual nutrition programme will optimise your health & vitality, improve egg/sperm health, address possible nutrient deficiencies and prepare your body for pregnancy.
I support individuals and couples from pre-conception to pregnancy and post-natal health through personalised nutrition and lifestyle advice.

Acupuncture & Fertility
Fertility can be expressed as the perfect balance of yin and yang in the body. In this sense, there is no internal disharmony and the body is healthy, menstrual cycles regular, libido good and daily stress handled well.
When working with fertility we restore the balance of yin and yang in the body which can become disrupted from a variety of reasons including contraception methods, stress, diet, and underlying gynecological conditions.
