Planning to Succeed

You would never expect to compete in a marathon without preparing yourself with at least 12 – 16  weeks of training? The same goes for preparing for conception, whether it is Assisted Reproductive Treatment (ART) or natural conception. What you do prior to conception in terms of nutrition is almost as important as what you do when you have successfully conceived. In short what you eat is vital to ensuring you have the best environment for your baby to thrive in.


Over the course of the last few decades something has upset the natural balance and hormonal relationship in our bodies. We are all living very different lives to our grandparents, where they, more than likely had fresher food, more exercise and less long term stress. Some people manage to conceive through all these issues, but some are affected more acutely and need further help.

Finding that balance again is extremely important. Achieving optimum fertility will not only help you to successfully conceive but will also have a positive effect on the rest of your life. Over time this blog, will give you the tools and answers to many questions that you may have about what to eat and what not to eat to boost your fertility, as let’s face it, it can be really confusing with messages coming from all areas of the media.

This blog is the result of supporting many clients and some of their concerns and questions along the way to getting pregnant. It is designed to give you more information and a key resource for you to help you to gain in your knowledge and re-educate yourself in the rather lacking consistent information out there around fertility and what to eat to bring yourself back into balance.

Stay tuned for more information about what to eat prior to trying to increase your chances and the research behind this. In short how to ‘plan to succeed’.
