I consider my fertility nutrition expertise and care as that of a fertility doula. I provide nurturing guidance with sound expertise. A doula means “kind person” and my aim is to help you without bias, to be there for you throughout your fertility & pregnancy journey. You may be preparing for pregnancy, struggling with unexplained infertility or miscarriage; considering assisted conception, have pregnancy concerns or just be in need of some reassurance – I am here to help you.
Here are some examples of the kinds of questions I am often asked!
