& fertility Nutrition 

 

We offer fertility and pregnancy nutrition care for all bodies. You can expect to receive care that is gender affirming & body positive.

We are plus sized pregnancy & fat positive fertility providers.

We believe it is possible to fall pregnant, maintain a pregnancy and deliver a baby without having to seek weight loss or engage in dieting/restrictive eating habits to control weight while pregnant.

Our fertility care is suitable for all bodies and we have a keen interest in supporting folks whom access to reproductive support may be limited or denied on the basis of body weight/BMI.

We can assist with:

  • Optimising fertility in ED recovery
  • Plus sized pregnancy matters
  • Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS)
  • Fertility concerns & IVF support
  • Body image concerns & eating disorder behaviours that may arise during pregnancy and postpartum

You are welcome to work with us at ANY stage of your fertility, pregnancy or postpartum journey. However, it is optimal to start thinking about preconception nutrition care approximately 3 months prior to actively trying to fall pregnant.
