As a dietitian, I feel that it is my duty to increase awareness of diet-related conditions that increase the risk for infertility. No matter the diagnosis or reason for delayed time to conception, attention to a high quality, unprocessed plant-based diet is the key to fertility. Specific food choices may be tailored to your needs, but all couples trying to conceive want to make the very best food choices that they can to improve their odds of conception. Diet and exercise play critical roles in your ability to conceive. Aspects of nutrition and physical activity influence both male and female fertility, so work together as you consider lifestyle changes to promote fertility.
On Wednesday, May 30 at 5:30 pm at the Reproductive Health Center, I’ll be talking about Fertility Foods; the foods that you want to fill your fridge, freezer and pantry as you are trying to conceive. These are the foods that you want now, before pregnancy, and later, during pregnancy, breastfeeding and raising your family.
Don’t miss this informative and interactive lecture! Call the Reproductive Health Center to sign up for the class, 733-0083. Space is limited so please call soon.

See you on May 30th!
