What is a fertility diet? Listen to our interview with fertility nutritionist and founder of The Fertility Kitchen on the basics of a healthy fertility diet
Listen to this great interview with Charlotte from The Fertility Kitchen about how she supported herself through her IVF with a healthy diet and is now teaching others to do the same.
Charlotte battled infertility for over 3 years and was successful in her first cycle of IVF. She strongly believes the steps she took to implement a healthy fertility diet and to nurture herself emotionally were instrumental in her successful cycle.
She has since trained in fertility acupuncture and fertility nutrition and is bringing together her knowledge and love for food at The Fertility Kitchen to help others through.

Finally, we delve into how Charlotte supported herself emotionally through IVF and how she leaned on nutrition to empower her through the journey and used meditation and mindfulness as key tools to support her emotional wellbeing.
