You can reclaim some of that power by nourishing your body and taking ownership of your health. You can use positive nutrition, supplements and lifestyle strategies to prioritise your complete wellbeing before and during treatment in preparation for conception and a healthy pregnancy.

Do you want to prepare your body to support IVF?
Do you want to prepare your body to support IVF?
You probably want to do everything you can to improve your chances of IVF success, but it can be hard to find reliable advice, let alone the practical support to translate that advice into delicious meals.
Are you looking for a complete resource with step-by-step guidance so you can confidently eat to support each stage of your IVF cycle without giving it much consideration? Because IVF is hard enough without having to research nutrients and foods to find them in, search for recipes and devise meal plans - right?!
Will you be working while doing IVF and therefore lack the time and headspace to plan ahead? Would you like your IVF nutrition taken care of so you don't have to give it your consideration and energy? Leaving you time to focus on the important things.
BUT do you fIND THE NUTRITION INFORMATION AVAILABLE LACKS THE PRACTICAL STEPS TO PUT IT INTO PRACTICE?
I've done the hard work for you. When I was going through IVF, I spent hours reading and researching how best to support myself. I transformed the information into delicious recipes, meal plans and positive lifestyle habits to support every stage of IVF. Of course I wanted a baby at the end of it, but I also wanted to feel my best during treatment. My efforts paid off and I had a positive experience with no side effects from the medication and I maintained a sense of wellbeing throughout.
I KNEW it WAS because of the PReparation and POSITIVE DIET AND LIFESTYLE CHANGES I had MADE.
A complete resource to help you feel confident and prepared in the lead-up to and throughout your IVF treatment.

There are 50 exclusive recipes in Optimise IVF that you won't find anywhere else in The Fertility Kitchen®, plus a few favourites from the Recipe Hub.

There are also separate IVF pantry and equipment categories to help you get organised and make life easier.
You'll learn what your body needs at this stage of IVF and how best to nourish yourself to support egg cell development, a healthy womb lining and how to beat the bloat after egg collection.

IVF can be daunting as there's so much to think about and coordinate. It's stressful and that's why your nutrition can sometimes be an afterthought. You want to prioritise it but you simply don't have the energy or headspace. I know what it's like, at the end of a long day, the last thing you feel like doing is wading through the heaps of internet advice to research what nutrients to eat and how to transform that into a delicious plate of food.
You really want to eat to support your fertility & IVF. But you need help to take your nutrition to the next level. You just want someone to tell you what works.
You're in the right place.
“This is your day. This is the time to go after it all.”

I created The Fertility Kitchen® as a resource to empower you to take ownership of your fertility through positive nutrition and lifestyle changes. I believe food is the key to laying down the foundations for optimal fertility, IVF success and a healthy pregnancy.
During my own fertility journey...
I began to explore food as medicine; I spent hours reading and researching how I could support my fertility through positive nutrition and lifestyle changes. There weren't enough resources out there, so I began to create my own recipes, tailoring them to support my fertility and IVF cycle. Over time I completely transformed my diet and I've never felt better, I'm continually astounded by the medicinal effects of eating well.
Deciding to embark on IVF is daunting enough. without the additional worry of what you should be eating and whether you're following the right advice. I have gained so much knowledge from both my personal fertility and IVF journey, and my professional experience as a Nutritional Therapist and Fertility Specialist.
It definitely helps to put your trust in someone who knows exactly what you're going through. Connecting with someone is easier when they know from experience just how daunting IVF is. You know they have your back.
You also need to be able to trust the advice you're getting. You want someone who is appropriately qualified and who really knows their stuff. That's why Optimise IVF is perfect for you. I'm a fertility nutritionist and author of The Fertility Kitchen with ten years experience in the field of fertility, IVF and preconception care. I've also navigated three years of unexplained infertility and had IVF to conceive my boys. I'm your cheerleader and I'm rooting for you.
