"When I was going through my fertility treatment a fertility dietitian identified gaps in my nutrition and provided me with a diet that was geared towards implantation which was successful, and now I have my son."
"We at Melbourne IVF are keen for people to optimise their health in preparation for pregnancy."
"Studies show that dietary modifications can help to improve egg quality and enhance fertility treatment success. Every person struggling with infertility deserves the best possible care which includes expert nutrition support."
Early Life Nutrition Alliance aims to support health care professionals advocate for the role of nutrition during the first 1,000 days through the provision of training, coaching and resources.
The first 1,000 days (being the period from pre-conception through to toddlerhood) provides a window of opportunity where a healthy environment, particularly good nutrition, can positively influence lifelong health by reducing the risk of allergies, weight complications and chronic diseases.
