Eating a diet to boost fertility and prepare for pregnancy is one of the most powerful health changes you can make for yourself and future baby.
Infertility is a sign that something is out of balance in the body and needs attention. Diet is crucial for fertility because the body will simply not allow conception to occur or a pregnancy to continue if it doesn’t have the basic nutritional foundation it needs to sustain a pregnancy. Women undergoing Assisted Fertility Treatments will improve their chance of success by supporting their bodies with a fertility diet.
Dietary and lifestyle changes can make a tremendous difference in improving fertility, while also helping with other issues like excess weight, low energy, blood sugar challenges, skin conditions and insomnia in the process.
Working with Nutritionist Stephanie Morish, you will optimize your fertility through positive dietary and lifestyle modifications. She will create an eating plan tailored to your needs. The customized diet will focus on key macro- and micro- nutrients that support your body in its reproductive efforts and eliminate foods that are harmful to your health and fertility. You will also address lifestyle factors, such as sleep, exercise, stress, and exposure to harmful chemicals, which may be impairing fertility.
Ensuring an optimal diet during pregnancy is one of the best gifts you can give your baby. Good maternal nutrition begins before conception and can help prevent low birth weight, premature birth and long-term health problems for your baby. Improper diet in late pregnancy can affect the baby’s brain development and expose women to higher risk for miscarriage and preeclampsia.
Your body is literally building an entire human being during pregnancy and you need a lot of quality sources of all nutrients which support human growth and development. The most important thing is not the calories that you take in, but the quality, or the nutrient density of those calories. In any discussion on food and nutrition, quality takes precedence over quantity, and never more so than during pregnancy.
Stephanie will design a nutrient-dense, whole food diet that provides you with all the building blocks you need for a healthy baby’s growth and development. Having a strong nutritional foundation and healthy lifestyle habits help reduce the discomforts of pregnancy and ensure your baby is getting optimal nutrition as well.
