If you are preparing for In Vitro Fertilization (IVF), changes to your diet may improve your chances of a successful cycle.
The research is still in its infancy when it comes to IVF and particular nutrients, but we know that women with a body mass index in a healthy range are more likely to have success with IVF, and we know that a nutrient rich diet is important for a healthy pregnancy. Dietary changes will also help you cope with stress, have more energy, and feel good about yourself as you take on this major life event.
When preparing for IVF, we recommend you start optimizing your diet well in advance of your egg retrieval, and continue your healthy eating throughout your pregnancy.
Work with Tara to ensure that your diet:
- Promotes optimal hormonal balance
- Includes plenty of dietary antioxidants to protect the integrity of the egg
- Is rich in agents that help circulation
- Is rich in anti-inflammatory foods
- Includes plenty of foods that provide specific nutrients needed for a healthy pregnancy
We’ll also explore supplements that can support your reproductive health.
Does this seem daunting to you? Don’t worry. It won’t be. We work together to tweak your diet to increase your fertility, and we talk about real food….like blueberries, spinach, rice, nuts….not science.
Each week we review your personalized plan, and make changes to it based on what works best for you. Each week you learn more about nutrition for a healthy pregnancy, and each week we practice the changes from the weeks before, and take on a few new changes.
Life gets hectic. If at any time you want to discontinue working with us, we will provide a full refund for the sessions you haven’t used.
