I'm Claudia and I'm a Registered Nutritional Therapist specialising in fertility and preconception health.
My passion for my profession stems from personal experience. I had spent many years trying to avoid pregnancy, so I was surprised when I found myself unable to get pregnant after a period of trying.
I decided to go the doctor for some advice & testing. Due to various structural factors beyond my control I was advised I needed IVF. As well as genetic factors, my age & high FSH / low AMH were highlighted as the main problem. I was told my chances of succeeding in taking home a baby were slim.
I found myself becoming increasingly anxious I would never be a mother, I felt like everyone around me was getting pregnant without trying, I felt jealous of pregnant mothers walking around & inside I was crying. I found myself retreating from family & friends with recent pregnancy announcements, feeling angry and questioning “why me?”, afraid of having to undertake IVF, worried about the expense, worried it wouldn’t work.
After employing targeted nutritional & lifestyle interventions my 'old' eggs improved in quality and my FSH reduced dramatically, allowing me succeed relatively quickly via IVF with twins.
I was able to harness the power of diet and nutrition to successfully start the family that I'd pined for so many years, and now I am passionate about supporting more couples/individuals to do the same.

During your fertility consultation we will discuss your medical health history, your diet as well as your symptoms.
I take a holistic approach so it’s helpful for me to understand lifestyle factors such as stress, family or work pressures that could be contributing to your fertility issues. By the end of your consultation, I aim to have a clear understanding of factors that may be influencing your current fertility health.
Together we will devise a personalised and practical nutritional programme tailored to your lifestyle to support your fertility including diet and lifestyle modifications, supplemental support and functional laboratory testing options.
I promise I won't give you any strict or complicated dietary plans - we will work together to make changes to your current diet to achieve important goals.
Small changes can have a big impact on diet & health.
