Hello, Laura here. A private, registered nutritional therapist specialising in fertility, pregnancy and postpartum health.
Using a holistic, evidence-based approach I work with clients to make realistic and sustainable nutrition and lifestyle changes that really do make a difference. My goal is to first help you understand the root-cause of your health issue then support you in overcoming this using bespoke, evidence-based nutrition & lifestyle strategies.
Whichever phase of motherhood you’re in, it’s a lot. I get it. I’m here to guide and empower you with the knowledge and tools you need to optimise your reproductive health, nurture a thriving pregnancy and enhance your postpartum experience. I want you to feel heard, informed and confident in achieving your health aims in a way that works for you.
I offer private, one-to-one nutrition consultations both at my gorgeous York city-centre clinic and online.
Training, qualifications & experience
Following a BSc in Psychology I completed a PGDip and an MSc in Nutrition Science and Practice at the Northern College of Acupuncture in York. NCA is regarded as one of the most reputable institutions in the UK for nutrition education & clinical training; “gaining a Master's qualification is THE gold standard of nutritional therapy education (anywhere in the world)” NCA, 2023.
My thesis explored which sources of antenatal nutrition information women deemed most trustworthy, with the results really highlighting the need for up to date, bespoke and most importantly, evidence-based fertility, pregnancy and postpartum nutrition information. And so, Laura Naylor Nutrition was born.
The CNHC encompasses many types of alternative therapy, including massage, aromatherapy and nutrition.

A practitioner must also have professional insurance and agree to abide by the CNHC Code of Conduct, Performance and Ethics.

Information about health conditions (*)
Nutritional therapy can help enhance the well-being of individuals diagnosed with serious medical conditions, but should not take the place of medical treatment and advice. If you have been diagnosed with - or suspect you may have - any of these conditions, please speak to your doctor before starting nutritional therapy or making any major changes to your diet or lifestyle.
£125.00 - £400.00

When I work
I specialise in fertility, pregnancy and postpartum health, guiding and empowering women with the knowledge and tools they need to optimise their reproductive health, nurture a thriving pregnancy and enhance their postpartum experience. My approach is thorough and entirely client-led, following the below process to create bespoke, evidence-based nutrition and lifestyle plans:
I assess clients’ medical history, lifestyle factors, symptoms, current dietary habits & specific health goals.
I use saliva, urine and/or blood analysis if I feel it will provide a deeper insight into a client’s health issue. Testing is always optional, never compulsory.
I consider factors such as age, gender, genes and environmental influences that can affect a client's nutritional needs.
I review all this information alongside the latest, high quality nutrition research, enabling me to develop bespoke, evidence-based nutrition & lifestyle plans for my clients. These include tailor-made dietary recommendations, lifestyle modifications & potentially, the use of nutritional supplements.
